  • “Is there anything more tragic than middle class white girls singing and dancing to Stormzy”

    Not ever the most diverse crowd at Glastonbury

    Thought his Union Jack Flack Jacket quite a poignant statement.

    Not a massive fan of his style, but a great performance 🕺

    Not the biggest grime fan, but hugely appreciating the thought and effort that’s gone into this set. Clever guy artistically, commercially and culturally. Some storming moments (sorry), and some bits of real beauty. Particularly loved the gang sign/gun/blessing symbolism.

    Reckon UK urban music might just truly have come of mainstream age.

    Is there anything more tragic than middle class white girls singing and dancing to Stormzy?!

    You commentating on it certainly trumps it for me. 👍

    Also. Best Glasto rap set? Showing Jay Z and Kanye how it’s done?

    The flak jacket was a great idea. Kinda think his energy was better in 2017. Wish he’d bring on skepta. Shame he didn’t give a nod to mike skinner.

    Sunday on the other stage looks a decent enoughlisten.

    One of the best headlines I can remember in recent years. That was **** awesome. Hard to believe at 25, he’s an elder statesman of U.K. Grime. And to echo @colournoise, the whole set was so well thought out and performed impeccably.

    But yeah, he smashed that.

    I only saw the last 10 mins flicking through the channels. I love hip hop but grime isn’t my thing, however it looked impressive and there certainly seemed to be a great atmosphere.

    Why ? Stormzy was great, I didn’t know some social economic groups were excluded from enjoying his performance. I’m sure he’s perfectly happy for his art to be appreciated by everyone.

    I thought the wombats were good, Sheryl crow was awful. Fontaines were just brilliantly mad.

    Telling black girls they can’t be ballerinas?

    Looking forward to the Cure. Really weak line up in general though compared to other years. A pity I never had this weather when at Download a few weeks back!

    He’s from Croydon it’s hardly Mogadishu. Plenty of white fome down there from super rich to super poor.

    My god some of you are miserable. Suns out, there’s some good music and some music you might not enjoy so much. Folk are having fun. And that’s great.

    It appears that Stormzy’s vest was a Banksy. 😀

    Stormzy was pretty damn good. Frank Turner’s been busy, I make it at least 4 performances plus a book reading.

    Not what it was.

    It’s become a generic gentrified cheese fest. It’s too cheap, they should double ticket prices each year, just because they can!

    Not what it was.

    😭

    Sure, like back in the 90’s when my wife used to climb over the fences to get in… sleep in an open field and get bottles of piss thrown all over the crowd..

    Eat rank overpriced food, drink cider out of plastic bottle and get hassled by perverts.

    Yeah, bring back those days eh?

    Weirdo.

    At least teenagers can go now without feeling like they’ll get assaulted.

    And middle aged IT Gurus feel like they’re back in the days when they used to enjoy “bopping” and forgetting for 30mins about the families they’ve left in the children’s play areas..

    Enjoy it, 200,000 people there look like they’re enjoying it.

    BBC having a mare here, Neneh Cherry is dire on one channel, and Janet Jackson is embarrassing on the other. Rock and roll.

    I think Janet’s mic is switched off.

    I’d rather be at a festival that’s not what it was, watching Stormzy with a load of middle class white girls, than be on the internet having a moan.

    And seriously, I really like moaning on the internet so that’s a big deal

    He’s always been shit but Burgatedicky has it, now just a parody of himself.

    I was channel surfing and thought it was Angelos Epithemiou on stage.
    Just turned over as in my opinion he isn’t very good really

    I once had a punch up with Liam G at Universal studios in LA. Long story. He’s still a ****.

    I watched oasis in Coventry uni once. I was freaked out the whole gig, thinking Liam was giving me evils.

    I think I just happened to be stood in his stare spot though..

    At least with liam, when him and Noel reconcile, oasis will sound the same.

    sigh….😒…….if only it was so easy

    How original. Impressed you thought that up all by yourself.

    Well if there is only one good thing about the coverage it’s that I’ve discovered Sharon van Etten.

    I ain’t a fan of the killers, and maybe it’s a location situation but he has that huge crowd in the palm of his hand and I truly wish I was there with my daughter right now! Big respect from the wrightys!
