Oxfam shops in Glastonbury, Somerset, and Streatham, London. have confirmed Stormzy as headlining the Friday night of next year's Glastonbury Festival. The posters, done in the style of the Festival's Free press, were displayed in the shop windows this afternoon.
It's now been confirmed on the festival's website, with Emily Eavis saying "Very happy to confirm Stormzy as our first headliner for next year. He’s one of the most exciting British artists to come along in years and after seeing him play here in 2017 we knew next time he had to come back and headline the Pyramid. See you there Friday night!"
It will be Stormzy's third Glastonbury appearance, following performances in the Sonic tent in 2016 and on the Other Stage in 2017.
Speaking to the BBC recently, organiser Emily Eavis had hinted at Stormzy. She said "We have got one of the artists that I'm most excited about in Britain right now. This to me is going to be a moment. And he can become the enormous person that he is, do you know what I mean?"
Stormzy is the first act officially confirmed. For the rumours - not necessarily likely - please see the Glastonbury 2019 line-up and rumours page.
Glastonbury Festival 2019 takes place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset from Wednesday 26th to Sunday 30th June. Tickets are sold out, although there will be a small resale of tickets in early April.
