As Glastonbury festival organizers announced that Kanye West will headline this year festival’s Saturday lineup, outraged fans are already demanding that rapper be dumped from the lineup.
“Cancel Kanye West’s slot and get a rock band,” the petition demanded.
It then added: “We spend hundreds of pounds to attend glasto, and by doing so, expect a certain level of entertainment.”
For the record, Foo Fighters are headlining Friday night’s Glastonbury lineup.
In 2008, there was an outcry over Jay-Z being the first rapper to headline Glastonbury, apparently because he wasn’t “rock” enough to handle the top slot on the bill.
However, anyone on the Internet can sign this petition, regardless of whether they’re going to Glastonbury or even live in the UK. So these 21,000-and-counting signatures don’t exclusively come from Glastonbury fest-goers.
