Jay-Z’s controversial headlining performance at last summer’s Glastonbury Festival in England has landed the multi-platinum rapper and entrepreneur yet another award.

The Festival had come under fire for the decision to make a Hip-Hop act the event’s main attraction, with one of the most vocal detractors being Oasis front man Noel Gallagher.

Jay-Z responded by opening his performance with his own guitar-accompanied rendition of the group’s 1995 hit “Wonderwall,” creating an instant viral hit.

The performance was named the Most Memorable Moment of this year’s festival season during the U.K. Festival Awards, held Thursday night (October 30) at London nightclub IndigO2.

The Glastonbury Festival, held in Somerset in August, also won the Best Major Festival award and an Outstanding Contribution nod for creator Michael Eavis.
