Rap heavyweight Jay-Z will headline the U.K.’s Glastonbury Festival in June.
Organizer Michael Eavis told BBC News that they wanted to “break with tradition this time and put on something totally different.”
Jay-Z “will appeal to the young people and under-25s for sure, so that’s a big pull for them,” Eavis said.
The festival will run for three consecutive days starting June 27 and is expected to attract 175,000 people.
The rest of this year’s line-up is still under wraps, though Neil Diamond has been confirmed to play the veteran’s slot on June 29.
Last year’s edition featured the Arctic Monkeys, Bjork, The Killers, Iggy & The Stooges, Amy Winehouse, The Who and Chemical Brothers, among others.
