Timberlake and 50 Cent by royal appointment?


Story: Jack Foley

CONTROVERSIAL rapper, 50 Cent, Justin Timberlake and Ms Dynamite could be playing in London in May, by royal appointment.

Prince Charles is to host Britain's largest urban music festival at Earl’s Court on May 8 and 9, as part of The Prince's Trust Music Festival, and is believed to have approached all three of the artists.

The urban extravaganza will also feature break-dance contests and lessons in graffiti writing, and is said to be a first for the music genre, with an expected 40,000 fans applying for tickets.

A trust spokeswoman confirmed: "There is currently nothing like this on the music calendar, and the market-place is clamouring for a large-scale, credible urban event to celebrate the steady rise of this music genre."

The Prince's Trust is no stranger to hosting big music events, as it also stages Capital Radio’s annual Party In The Park pop concert and recently held a Fashion Rocks event at the Royal Albert Hall, which attracted some big names in rock, as well as a host of supermodels.
