The Grime MC urged the crowd to prove that 'grime is meant to be' at the weekender.
Performing cuts from his debut album ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’, Stormzy revved up the crowd in-between songs and gave a shout out to his native South London.
He noted that he was the only grime artist on the line-up and urged the crowd to show Radio 1 that ‘grime is meant to be here’. You can see his full performance below.

Now featuring additional vocals by the ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’ MC, the release of the high-energy, female empowerment-themed track comes ahead of the reveal of its accompanying music video, which the group have teased screenshots from in the past few weeks.
