Jay-Z will headline the 2008 Glastonbury Festival, organiser Michael Eavis has confirmed.
News of the rapper's appearance brings to an end weeks of speculation about the mystery identity of the rumoured American star.
Eavis is understood to have been asked if the hip hop legend was on the bill for the event by a reporter from BBC Somerset today.
On confirming he would play the June gathering, Eavis said they hoped to "break with tradition this time and put on something totally different.
"He will appeal to the young people and under-25s for sure, so that's a big pull for them. It's not like the traditional one we do, like Radiohead, Coldplay, Muse and Oasis", he explained.
Glastonbury 2008 takes place on June 27+28+29. Official registration for the festival opened today.
