On March 30 Bluesfest organizers announced the festivals biggest headlining act Kanye West. Subsequently, a petition was launched to have West removed from the festival’s lineup… And then someone else started an anti-Kanye petition, petition.. Yeah.

Mark Monahan, Bluesfest executive and artistic director released a video parody of West’s “Only One” on March 29, in which he teased that the lineup may have been leaked but the biggest name had yet to come.

When the announcement was made this past Monday, critics all over Ottawa instantly reacted. Following in the footsteps of fans of the Glastonbury Festival in the UK who launched a petition titled “Cancel Kayne West’s headline slot and get a rock band.” The Glastonbury petition is picking up steam with 132,903 supporters as of April 1, 9:30pm. While Ottawa’s petition remains quite tame with only 1,473 supporters.

For the time being however, West remains slotted to play Friday, July 10.
