Rapper Nas is to headline the dance tent at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, organisers have confirmed.
The star will join some of the biggest names in the reborn ‘Dance Village’, including Disclosure, Hot Natured, David Rodigan, Sub Focus, Aluna George, Eats Everything, Rudimental and The Congos. Now known as Silver Hayes, the new area will include one giant supertent, Sonic, for dance-oriented headliners, the Wow Stage for underground breakers and best of all the Gully – a brand new installation combining an open air stage and a pulsating street of sound systems and stalls featuring the best new DJs, MCs and live music.
Festival Organiser Emily Eavis has said “I’ve always thought that the closest parallel with Glastonbury is Notting Hill Carnival, and the buzz around this rebirth is exactly what we were looking for, both musically and visually. There’s going to be a lot of incredible music from all around the world.”
We’ll be updating with more Glastonbury 2013 confirmed artists as and when announced. Rest assured though, after an absence last summer, Glasto is set to return to glory.
