Kanye has been confirmed as Saturday night’s headline at this year’s Glastonbury festival.
The festival’s organiser, Emily Eavis, tweeted: “We are thrilled to let you know we have the one and only Kanye West headlining Saturday night on the Pyramid stage!”
The festival takes place June 24-28 at Worthy Farm in Somerset, England. It is the largest greenfield festival in the world with a capacity of almost 200,000 people and hundreds of acts.
Tickets for this year have already sold out.
Starting this Saturday, March 7, Kanye has announced four concerts in four nights at Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris. On the Fondation’s site, it mentions the two-hour show will be accompanied by a film directed by Academy Award winner Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave), and photography from the acclaimed Jackie Nickerson. Tickets are available for €100 EUR, a portion of which will go to charity.
Last night, Kanye surprised fans with a last minute show at KOKO in London. Tickets reportedly sold out in a matter of minutes, but those lucky enough to attend were treated to an immense line-up including Wu-Tang Clan, Big Sean, Vic Mensa, Skepta, and Cyhi the Prynce.
