The rapper is bringing his unique vision of gospel, grime, and soul to the main stage as part of a summer of festivals on the back of his third album, This is What I Mean.
And Big Mike has put together the entire day at the festival on Friday, from choosing the support bill acts to the performance mechanics for what is being hyped as ‘This Is What We Mean Day’.
The Strokes and Haim are headlining subsequent dates of the Victoria Park festival, as are Jungle and Dermot Kennedy. On August 19, APE will be called Field Day and will see a dance orientation with Aphex Twin and Bonobo headlining.
Stormzy is headlining the first day, and this is what he has in store.
