Roots Manuva brings Dance Stage to a close at Leeds Festival
The rapper goes up against Blink-182's Main Stage headline slot
Roots Manuva brought the Dance Stage at Leeds Festival to a close today (August 28), headlining a bill that featured the likes of Metronomy and HEALTH.
Going up against Blink-182 on the Main Stage and Klaxons on the NME/Radio 1 Stage, the rapper still pulled in a big crowd with hundreds of fans packing out the tent.
Before playing 'Buff Nuff', he told the audience: "I'm going to dedicate this next song to all the sexy ladies out there."
Roots Manuva played hits 'Witness' and 'Audio Murder', before closing with 'Calling Out'. However, he soon added 'Dreamy Days' to the set when the crowd shouted for more.
The Lock Up Stage returns to Leeds Festival tomorrow (August 29), when Alkaline Trio will headline.
Roots Manuva played:
'Join The Dots'
'Run Em Out'
'Let The Spirit'
