Get Kanye West off the Glastonbury headline spot

Written by

We all know and feel Glastonbury has lost its way but having Kanye on as headliner is obviously the last nail in the coffin. Get this muppet off the list. He has no place on any stage, never mind Glastonbury.

Before anyone argues that supporters of him NOT headlining or even being at Glastonbury are narrow minded or limited in their musical taste or acceptance, let us please remember that what this dude does is not music, it is clever PR at best.

Glastonbury has had many diverse artists so can't be accused of being rock only or not being diverse enough.

please head over and sign this man off the headline spot at Glastonbury at: Change.org
