Calvin Harris ditches Dizzee Rascal for V Festival set

Scot inspires afternoon rave despite no 'Dance Wiv Me'

Calvin Harris packed out the JJB Arena tent at the Staffordshire leg of V Festival this afternoon (August 16).

However the Scottish producer-singer did not dip into his recent chart topping collaboration with Dizzee Rascal, and instead relied on his own songs to get the tent pumping.

‘Dance Wiv Me’ was hardly missed as ‘Acceptable In The 80s’ triggered an early bout of hand waving from the throng.


With the likes of ‘Merrymaking At My Place’, ‘Vegas’ and ‘Colours’ getting the crowd dancing, an energetic Harris bounced along throughout his set backed by a full live band.

Things were then wrapped up with a storming version of ‘The Girls’ which, despite the late afternoon time slot, had the shaking like a full-on rave.
