Finally! The first name for Glastonbury 2019 has been revealed. Stormzy will be performing at the English festival on Friday 28 June.

Posters have revealed Glastonbury’s first announcement for 2019. They were seen hanging in Oxfam shops, a well-known partner of the festival.

The announcement does not come as a complete surprise, as the British star was already rumoured to headline Glastonbury next year. It will be the first time a grime artist tops the bill of the legendary festival.

Stormzy was born in July 1993 in London. His debut album Gang Signs and Prayers was the first grime record ever to reach number one in the UK charts. Stormzy won two MOBO Awards, in 2014 and 2015, for Best Grime Act. He was the first unsigned rapper to appear on Jools Holland’s famous tv show. His second album is due to be released early next year.
