Check out a few of the performances from the Glastonbury Festival in the UK over this past weekend. There was a bit of controversy concerning Jay-Z's role as a headliner in the festival, which traditionally does not have hip-hop acts in such a prominent position. Noah Gallagher of Oasis even went so far as saying that hip-hop does not have a place at Glastonbury, and that Jay-Z was responsible for what appeared to be slower ticket sales. Jay-Z responded with a cover of Oasis's Wonderwall to start of his performance, followed by his own 99 Problems (but apparently Oasis isn't one). Check it his performance here courtesy of the BBC.
Lupe Fiasco also performed at the festival (and you can see his full set here, also courtesy of the BBC), where he made some comments defending hip-hop's place and showing that rappers can rock with the best of them.
Also check out performances by Britain's own Estelle and Dizzee Rascal, as well as everyone's favorite rehab non-attendee Amy Winehouse.
