So there is a high chance Stormzy is the Friday night headliner for Glastonbury and I’ve seen people kicking off saying they are not going any more.— Georgia-Kate Baines (@georgiakate) November 10, 2018
Find it hilarious that people are moaning about Stormzy allegedly headlining Glastonbury. Jeez not everybody wants to see Foo Fighters and Muse headline for the 7th year in a row— Blinky Ⓥ 🌱 (@ChloeeSucks) November 11, 2018
I’m sorry but Stormzy isn’t big enough to headline Glastonbury...— Ellis (@EllisCole_) November 11, 2018
Stormzy for Glastonbury Friday I’m hearing. If so, I’m gutted that I won’t be making a return to Worthy Farm.— Ravi Pau (@RavPau) November 10, 2018
Stormzy headlining Glastonbury on the Friday would be truly epic. We already know his stage show is incredible and with new music on the way I think he’d absolutely smash it— Ben Anderson (@IAmBenAnderson) November 12, 2018
Stormzy for Glastonbury? Looking forward to seeing all the guitar music mob contort themselves into coming up with reasons why 'that sort' of artist shouldn't headline.— Flawed Is Beautiful (@Flawed_Is_Movie) November 12, 2018
