The odds on Stormzy headlining 2019’s Glastonbury Festival have been slashed by bookmaker Betway.

The reveal follows the grime MC updating his Insta Story with a post mimicking Noel Gallagher’s famed 2008 quote “No, I’m not havin hip hop at Glastonbury. F***in no chance” – this led to the online bookie taking measures to shorten their offering of the star being booked for Worthy Farm in 2019.

Kendrick Lamar, just 4/5 before the latest odds shift, has been pushed out to 6/5 but still tops the betting, ahead of 9/4-chance Elton John and 5/2-shot Kylie Minogue.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “The smallest hint on social media can send odds plummeting these days and Stormzy’s latest post has left us receiving a wave of betting interest and we’ve had to cut his odds from 10/1 to 7/2. Emily Eavis has branched out into different genre’s recently to keep Glasto fresh and Stormzy might just be the man to provide something a bit different to next year’s show. As things stand, the odds suggest the headliners in 2019 for Friday to Sunday will be Kendrick Lamar, 6/5, Elton John, 9/4, and Kylie Minogue at 5/2, but Stormzy is well in contention at 7/2, while the Artic Monkeys and Fleetwood Mac could add a more authentic rock feel to the festival at 9/2.”

Check the latest odds below; Glastonbury Festival will return on 26th Jun 2019 and run until 30th June.
