The West Belfast crew were as savage as ever.
The Kneecap trio, made of Mo Chara, Móglaí Bap and DJ Próvaí did not disappoint this evening at EP. They performed at the brand-new Terminus mega stage, which is at the heart of the Freetown area unveiled this year.
A large eclectic crowd gathered to see their show - "have you's got nothing better to do," they asked, visibly delighted by the eagerness of their fans.
As per usual, DJ Próvaí was wearing a balaclava, although it wasn't black this time around but rather in the colours of the Irish flag, which is totally in tune with the whole Kneecap narrative.
The crowd whipped into a frenzy when they sang their highly controversial chant 'Brits Out' deemed subversive by many - something that the daring trio would definitely not let stand in the way of their music.
"There may be an undercover cop beside you. Stay vigilant," joked Móglaí Bap as an introduction to their song 'Your Sniffer Dog Are Shite'.
In their usual fashion, the rappers were drinking plenty of Buckfast on stage and messing around with each other - their 'don't care' attitude being their trademark.
The guys also performed one of their latest release 'H.O.O.D' which generated great response, prompting them both to scream 'I fucking love you's' and the crowd to answer by chanting ole-ole-ole - Kneecap and their growing fanbase being visibly in sync.
The show was brought to an end with their song 'C.E.A.R.T.A' which is mostly rapped in Gaelic and which also generated quite a lot of controversy. The crowd went wild fo it one last time, even more exhilarated as a couple flares were lit.
An explosive performance which definitely won't be the last on Irish grounds.
