Jay-Z snubbed at festival awards

Rapper Jay-Z headlined the Saturday night of this year's Glastonbury Festival

Glastonbury headliner Jay-Z has been snubbed in the nominations for the UK Festival Awards.

Music fans have left the rapper off the shortlist for the best festival headline act in the awards shortlist, announced today.

However, this year's other Glastonbury headliners, Kings Of Leon and The Verve, have both been nominated.

Jay-Z's cover of Oasis' Wonderwall at the event features in the shortlist for most memorable moment though.

His controversial performance of the song is up against other 'moments' including the impromptu collaboration between Arctic Monkeys, Klaxons and British Sea Power at the latter's own festival Sing Ye From The Hills.

The rapper was even beaten to the nominations for best urban act by Dizzee Rascal, Estelle, NERD, Roots Manuva and The Streets.

The shortlist for best live newcomer looks set to be tightly fought, with Duffy, Glasvegas, MGMT, The Ting Tings and Vampire Weekend all nominated.

Music fans can vote for the winners until 20 October. The awards ceremony takes place at London's Indigo2 venue on 30 October.
