“Grime has entered our lives in such a big way and it’s brilliant that we’re representing that as much as possible.”
The full Glastonbury schedule may have been unveiled last week, but new details of what to expect from the festival are still being revealed. Emily Eavis has now announced that the Other Stage will be headlined by Boy Better Know.
“It’s going to be great for grime,” Eavis
tells NME. “We were showing the world and leading the day in that genre. Everybody’s listening, even the Americans. It felt like we were witnessing something really exciting and fresh and the whole scene has kind of shifted. Grime has entered our lives in such a big way and it’s brilliant that we’re representing that as much as possible.”
