It's official: Kanye West is headlining this year's Glastonbury festival.

Yeezy will play the Pyramid stage on Saturday night (June 27th), in what is his only confirmed UK appearance so far.

"We're very excited to announce that @kanyewest will headline the Saturday night at Glastonbury 2015," the festival organisers wrote on Twitter.

West joins the previously confirmed Foo Fighters, Lionel Richie, Father John Misty and Courtney Barnett. Tickets for Glastonbury 2015 are sold out. The standard 'BUT GLASTONBURY IS FOR ROCK BANDS' petition has already begun (oh dear).
