The bets are already coming in thick and fast for the amount of time Kanye West will actually spend performing his music on the Pyramid Stage.

Kanye is due to headline Glastonbury on Saturday 27 June, in a controversial set that sparked a petition with 130,000 signatures calling for festival organisers to cancel the rapper’s slot when he was first announced to take the stage in February.

Given Kanye’s love of flouting convention (take, for example, his 20 minute rant at Wireless on two consecutive nights and swearing throughout his Brit Awards performance), bookies are taking a handful of bets on his likely antics.

Odds on West spending over 30 minutes giving a speech to the crowd are currently at (7/1), with similar odds for the rapper singing a Beck song after recently admitting he was “wrong” about sniping the singer at the Grammys.

The odds from PaddyPower are currently as follows:

To bring Kim on stage – 2/1

Kanye to crowd surf – 5/2

Bringing North West on stage - 5/1

To duet with Jay Z on stage – 5/1

To sing a Beck song - 7/1

Kanye to spend 30 minutes or more delivering a speech during his headline set – 7/1

To sing a Taylor Swift song – 16/1
