Not only is Stormzy the first British rapper to headline Glastonbury, he will be the first rapper to headline the iconic event since Kanye West's 2015 performance.

Stormzy last performed at Glastonbury in 2017 on the Other Stage.

Elsewhere he has been busy releasing his new autobiography on his new Penguin publishing imprint collaboration #Merky Books, and has the first independent title arriving next year. He's also started a Cambridge University scholarship fund for Black And Minority Ethnic (BAME) students.

The Cure, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin and The Beach Boys have topped betting odds over summer with potential to headline the 2019 festival.

Although Worthy Farm took 2018 off to recharge from hosting nearly 200,000 people, 2017 saw the Foo Fighters, Radiohead and Ed Sheeran headline the Pyramid Stage.

Glastonbury takes place 26-30 June 2019 at Worthy Farm in Somerset. Tickets for next year's event sold out in just 36 minutes.
