Snoop Dogg To Perform At Glastonbury Festival

(AllHipHop News) It’s been less than a week since Snoop Dogg won his battle to enter the UK and the rapper is already being courted for one of the country’s biggest and oldest festivals.

Michael Eavis, organizer of the Glastonbury Festival, revealed that he is working hard to bring Snoop Dogg to the festival this year.

According to Eavis, his daughter Emily is a huge fan of Snoop Dogg.

Emily was also responsible for booking Jay-Z into a headlining act in 2008, a move which drew criticism from a few artists, most notably Oasis front man Noel Gallagher.

“She’s a bright girl and she is very keen on Snoop Dogg doing the show, so we want him,” Eavis told the UK’s Sun newspaper. “Her real claim to fame is booking Jay-Z. She came up with the idea, so I phoned his manager. At the end of a 40-minute chat he said Jay-Z would do the show, and the rest is history.”

Snoop Dogg was banned from the UK in 2006, after his entourage became involved in a brawl with airport security, when they were denied access to a first class area of the airport.

The rapper, who was also banned from Australia, won his appeal to enter the UK last week after several appeals during a four-year court battle to re-enter the country.
