Ms Banks brought her sharp wordplay and energy, while Kenny Allstar had the crowd going wild as he brought the iconic Potter Payper to the stage. Tion Wayne got all hands in the air during his set, including bringing out some huge special guests – including In for the Kill singer La Roux, M24 and A1 x J1.

Knucks proved his status as one of the UK’s most exciting rap talents, and Mabel showed her chart-topping prowess with hits including Don’t Call Me Up and Finders Keepers. Iconic afrobeats party-starters NSG then wrapped up the weekend in style.
