Stormzy will be Glastonbury’s first grime headliner, with a Pyramid Stage slot confirmed for 2019.
The news first transgressed via a poster in an Oxfam shop in Streatham – close to the star’s childhood home – and one in Glastonbury.
Stormzy corroborated the news via a post on Instagram.
He headlined this summer’s Wireless Festival and has played Glastonbury festival twice before in the Sonic Tent in 2016 and the Other Stage in 2017.
