Glastonbury Festival co-organiser Emily Eavis has been subjected to death threats following a backlash over her decision to book rapper Kanye West to headline, however, Emily Eavis will stand by "amazing force" Kanye West headlining Glastonbury despite receiving death threats for her choice of headliner. 

As soon as it was revealed the 'All Day' rapper would lead the line-up, many angry festival goers took to the internet in protest, with 133,000 signing a petition to stop Kanye - who is married to Kim Kardashian - from being allowed to perform. 

Emily, who organises the event with her father Michael Eavis, who founded the festival - told The Times newspaper: "I had death threats and stuff. It was just horrible. It was just crazy. It was getting out of control. We had Time magazine, all the American news channels saying they were going to come down. This incredible onslaught worldwide."

Emily has found the whole backlash very troubling, and insists all she and her dad Michael want to do is book the best acts in the world to play at their festival. 

She added: "It was quite upsetting because we were talking about something that was so exciting and interesting and fresh and brilliant for the festival. Kanye West is making the most exciting music at the moment. He is an amazing force as a performer. For us, getting the biggest star in the world was an amazing coup."
