The collaboration appears on Dave’s recent second album ‘We’re All Alone In This Together’, and last night’s performance marks the first time the pair have played it live together.
After Dave left the stage following the performance, Stormzy told the crowd: “Ladies and gentlemen, make some noise for King David.”

Playing before Stormzy on the Main Stage was AJ Tracey, with NME calling his set “a slam-dunk festival comeback,” writing: “AJ brings it all back home with final song, ‘Ladbroke Grove’, which sounds bigger, somehow, than it did two years ago. Perhaps the cover of night offers the lights-out naughtiness that usually only a small club can offer – it is a garage banger, after all.
“Or perhaps it’s because after the past 18 months that these punters have had, it’s a chance for AJ to be live and direct as he becomes king of the Bank Holiday weekend.”
