Rapper Giggs played an eventful set in Glastonbury's Dance East tent today (June 26), which saw him battle technical difficulties, collaborate with Skepta and give away hundreds of CDs.

The late afternoon gig was delayed by 30 minutes, meaning that Giggs, his DJ and entourage were forced to perform while roadies set up instruments for the next act Tinie Tempah behind him.

Nevertheless, the Peckham-based rapper initially carried on regardless, bringing on Shola Ama to sing on 'Blow Em Away'. When her microphone didn't work, Giggs lamented the poor equipment and began throwing handfuls of CDs into the audience until the problem had been fixed.

His second collaboration – with Skepta on 'Look Out' – went more smoothly, with Giggs introducing the MC onstage by saying, "Let's get ready for Skepta. Make some proper noise!"

He later made reference to the feel-good nature of Glastonbury.

"Is everyone having a good time today?" Giggs asked to emphatic cheers from the crowd, before adding: "Are you drinking a drink? Smoking a spliff? A bit of charlie?"

Giggs played:

'Slow Songs'
'Don't Go There'
'Blow Em Away'
'Hussle On'
'Look Out'
'Look What The Cat Dragged In'
'Talkin Da Hardest'
