Jay-z Confirmed To Play Glastonbury Festival

by | 02 February 2008

Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis has confirmed that US rapper Jay-Z will play at this year's festival.

Mr Eavis told the BBC that he wanted to: "break from tradition and put on something totally different."

"He will appeal to the young people and under-25s for sure, so that's a big pull for them," Eavis said.

Registration for the festival also opened today with anyone wanting to attend the famous event having to submit their details and photo by March 15th.

Tickets will then go on sale on April 6th but only for those who have registered.

While the rest of this year's line-up remains a secret, Eavis has confirmed that veteran singer Neil Diamond will play.

The Glastonbury festival will take place between 27th and 29th June.
