Is Stormzy being announced as the first headliner of Glastonbury 2019? Yes, yes he is.
Posters have been popping up in Oxfam shops - specifically in Pilton and Streatham, in South London, so far - in the style of the festival’s artwork, saying “Stormzy Friday! First Glastonbury headliner revealed”. So, er, yeah, sounds quite plausible then?
UPDATE: Well, yeah, it’s now confirmed: Emily Eavis has tweeted the news herself.
Next year’s edition of the legendary festival will take place from 26th to 30th June 2019 - with Stormzy looking likely to close proceedings on Friday 28th June - and tickets are already sold out, obvs.
Check out the poster below.
