Kanye West Set For Glastonbury 'Guest Appearance'

by | 11 May 2009

Rap star Kanye West could follow mentor Jay-Z in appearing at this year's Glastonbury Festival, reports claim.

While the Stronger rapper is not set to headline the Pyramid Stage like the Roc-A-Fella mogul, West is likely to make appearance during the Glastonbury set of singer-songwriter Mr Hudson, the Sun newspaper claims.

Mr Hudson sang on Paranoid from West's last album 808s and Heartbreak and the hip-hop heavyweight has chosen to champion the Oxford graduate, saying Hudson could be "one of the most important artists of his generation".

West co-produced Hudson's upcoming album Straight No Chaser and is quoted by the Sun as saying there is a "real possibility" he could appear with Hudson at Glastonbury.

"I do agree with the idea you have to play guitar, some kind of instrument, at a festival," he added, in reference to Noel Gallagher's criticism of Jay-Z's booking for Glastonbury 2008.

"Hudson is a truly talented singer and performer who plays piano and guitar. You can take his record all the way to the festivals."

While filming the video for his forthcoming single Supernova, Hudson explained: "We're going to do the festivals together and we're looking forward to that. Glastonbury will be huge. Kanye doesn't really do mud or rain but I hope he will be with me.

"I think there's a good chance. I can imagine him at Glasto in wellies, a Barbour jacket and with a Labrador."

West and Hudson are both set to appear at the Wireless festival in Hyde Park in July.
