Eavis promised a black American and he’s delivered; Jay-Z has been confirmed to headline this summer’s Glastonbury Festival.
The event organiser revealed the news to BBC Somerset on the day that the ticket registration process began.
Eavis claimed he wanted to "break with tradition this time and put on something totally different”, a break presumably prompted by his concern at the growing age of Glastonbury attendees.
"He will appeal to the young people and under-25s for sure, so that's a big pull for them,” hoped Eavis.
"It's not like the traditional one we do, like Radiohead, Coldplay and Muse and Oasis."
True say, blud, blates n t’ing. Neil Diamond and Hot Chip were confirmed earlier this week for the weekend, which runs from 27th ‘til the 29th of June.
