Tinie Tempah and Jess Glynne to open MTV Crashes

It's Plymouth's biggest music event of the year, and the first night line-up for this summer’s MTV Crashes Plymouth is firming up.

Tinie Tempah and Jess Glynne have both been confirmed for the first night of the two-day music festival, which last year saw around 20,000 people descend on the Hoe.

Tinie Tempah will be headlining on 22 July. He had a number one with his debut album Disc-Overy and has since won BRIT Awards for Best British Breakthrough Act and Best British Single, as well as getting two top 10 singles in the UK charts.

MTV Crashes Plymouth is going to be awesome. It’s so beautiful down there. I can’t wait to get out there and perform by the sea this summertime.

It’s going to be a wicked show!

– Tinie Tempah

He’ll be joined by pop star Jess Glynne, who's had three number ones. ‘Hold My Hand’ held the top spot for three weeks. Her debut solo single reached the top 10 and her first album is expected later this year.

I’m so happy to be announced for MTV Crashes Plymouth with Tinie Tempah! This is a really exciting year for me with my album coming out later in the year and the summer is going to be mental.

MTV Plymouth, let’s do it!

– Jess Glynne

The event will be broadcast live around the world.

More names for both days will be announced soon.

Eavis on booking The Who for Glasto 2015

Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis has been describing his delight at booking The Who as Sunday headliners for the event in June.

They last performed at Worthy Farm in 2007.

They cancelled one of their dates abroad and they said we'd love to do it so we're thrilled to bits about that and last time they were brilliant. Fantastic show it really was. The sound was perfect, lovely evening when they played last time.

– Michael Eavis, Glastonbury Festival founder

It might be the last time for them, I don't know so we simply could not resist and I'm so pleased they agreed to reschedule the tour in order to do it. It's going to be a highlight it really is.

I am a fan. I think Roger Daltrey is one of the best singers in the world you know. Fantastic. The whole shebang is going to be absolutely fantastic. Marvellous.

– Michael Eavis

Angry Glastonbury festival fans launch petition against Kanye

The petition has so far attracted 28,000 signatures Credit: ITV News

The announcement that Kanye West is one of the headliners at Glastonbury has angered some fans of the festival - who have launched a petition.

The change.org petition, has so far attracted over 28,000 supporters.

The rapper has been confirmed as one of this summer's headline acts.

He follows in the footsteps of fellow hip-hop superstar Jay Z, whose Saturday night slot in 2008 caused huge controversy before it was deemed a big success.

Now a petition has been launched in an attempt to derail plans by organisers for the US star to perform.

West recently took to the stage to debut new track All Day at the Brits but his performance - much of it muted out - left many viewers disappointed.

Kanye West is an insult to music fans all over the world. We spend hundreds of pounds to attend Glasto, and by doing so, expect a certain level of entertainment. Let's prevent this musical injustice now!

– Change.org petition

Emily Eavis, daughter of the festival's founder Michael, revealed on Twitter on Monday night that the rap superstar will top the Saturday bill at Glastonbury in June.

But Adam Tingley wrote on the petition website: "If he can't even get the Brits right, how will he manage to pull in the crowds at the world's greatest music festival?!?"

Alice McCready added: "Kanye's rap image is not in keeping with the festival's concepts. His lyrics are at times offensive".

Others were more supportive.

Barnye Hunter wrote on Twitter: "I love Glastonbury because the line up is so diverse and oh my how dare they let something other than an old white rock band headline!"

And Kayleigh Quinn said: "No specific genre owns Glastonbury. There's more than one stage. Get over yourself."

The announcement came shortly after West tweeted a series of nude pictures of his wife, socialite Kim Kardashian.

Eavis tweeted: "We are thrilled to let you know we have the one and only Kanye West headlining Saturday night on the Pyramid Stage!"

It has also been announced that Paul Weller will take the slot immediately before the band.

The Who are now doubled booked however, with a show already scheduled for Sunday 28th in Paris. It's not been confirmed whether this concert will be moved to a different date.
