The promoters behind the UK’s venerable Glastonbury Festival have unveiled the headliner of the Saturday edition of this year’s festival. In a statement released on their website earlier, the Glastonbury crew have announced that Kanye West will serve as the festival’s headlining act on its second day. Kanye will take the headlining slot via a spot on the show’s Pyramid Stage, and will follow-up a headlining performance from Foo Fighters, who take center-stage Friday. No word yet on the Sunday headliner, but Kanye is currently the biggest name attached to the 2015 edition of the festival. You can read Glastonbury’s official statement below.
