Stormzy Makes His Coachella Debut

Stormzy made his Coachella debut yesterday afternoon (April 14th).

The British Grime MC performed in front of a sizeable crowd and at times seemed taken aback at the reception he received.

“This is going to go down as one of the best shows I’ve ever played.” Stormzy told the audience during his set.

“Before coming here, I didn’t know if it would be two people or 200… and there’s thousands.”

Stormzy, whose buzz has been growing stateside, performed tracks from his debut album ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’.

Check out Stormy’s Coachella setlist below:

  1. First Things First
  2. Cold
  3. Return Of The Rucksack
  4. Mr Skeng
  5. Velvet
  6. One Take
  7. Shape Of You (remix)
  8. Cigarettes & Cush
  9. Big For Your Boots
  10. Know Me From
  11. Shut Up

Midway through his show and clearly wanting to make the most of his moment on stage, Stormzy demanded the audience do one thing whilst he performed album track ‘Know Me From’.

“It doesn’t matter if you don’t know who the **** I am.”

“It doesn’t matter if you don’t understand anything I’m saying or the beat… for the next three minutes I want you to (wreck) the place.”

And, of course the crowd did exactly as he asked.
