Black Music Blowin’ Up At Glastonbury

June 27, 2011

It got serious when Jay-Z tore the field up as the first rap headline act since the festival’s inception. Now Beyonce, Big Boi, Wu Tang Clan, Tinie Tempah, Plan B, Chimpmunk, Janelle Monae, and Cee Lo Green got the opportunity to rock Glastonbury too. There were more – see the full line up here:

Even though long overdue, it’s great to see a mainstream festival that isn’t electronic or dance themed celebrate the success and influence of these artists have across the genres.
