Glastonbury Festival 2015 was another epic festival for the books. It was so dope that fans got to sing Happy Birthday to the Dalai Lama, who was there to give a speech.
Kanye West headlined the festival and in true Ye’ fashion, he did not disappoint. The “All Day” singer’s performance was interrupted by English comedian Simon Brodkin, who was playing his character Lee Nelson.
According to reports, Brodkin ran onstage in a “Lee-zus” T-shirt and carrying a mic during ‘Black Skinhead’, the fourth song of West’s set. Although security quickly removed him from the stage, Yeezy’s debut headline show was apparently disrupted, and he was forced to restart the track.
Brodkin later tweeted from his Lee Nelson account,
“Some people were saying Kanye shouldn’t headline Glasto so I thought I’d give him a hand.”
Before Kanye hit the stage, Pharrellblessed the crowd with an encore performance of his hit song “Happy” and a first listen at his new track, “Freedom.”
