Stormzy Announced as First Glastonbury 2019 Headliner


Stormzy has been revealed as the first headliner for Glastonbury 2019, confirming the rumours that had been swirling for the past week.

The announcement that the grime icon will headline the festival's Friday night was broken through posters displayed at Oxfam shops in Glastonbury and Streatham, close to where Stormzy grew up.


His set marks the culmination of years of hard work for the south London MC, who released his debut album Gang Signs and Prayer to critical acclaim late last year.

More artists will be announced over the coming months, but there is already heavy speculation over who will accompany Stormzy on headlining duties, including Paul McCartney, Madonna, ABBA and The Cure. 

Tickets to the festival sold out within 32 minutes last month, with the resale happening next year for those who missed out.
