Stormzy will take to the Belsonic stage later this month.
Previous Hot Press cover Sigrid and rapper Fredo will join Stormzy as a special guest for his Belsonic show on June 20.
Stormzy is set to play his largest Belfast headline show to date at Belsonic.
Current number one charting artist with his single, ‘Vossi Bop' 18 months since his debut album released, the British rapper has headlined Glastonbury and won an Ivor Novello award.
Although already making a name for himself before, the release of his first LP, Gang Signs and Prayer launched him to new heights with his mix of gospel and British grime.
Although Stormzy's fame has increased rapidly, he remains level-headed and oh-so-cool about the pressure, self-assured in his abilities.
"I’m going to play Wembley Stadium”, he predicts. “One hundred percent. I don’t even doubt it."
The secret to Stormzy's confidence lies in the genuine love he has for the music.
“I feel like I’ve fully found the code for music”, he says, “which is truth. It’s like, if I hear the riddim and I love it, that’s my truth.” He references Prince’s Purple Rain. “I don’t know much of his work, to be honest, but you know when he goes ‘I don’t want to be your weekend lover’? You see the way he’s singing that? That’s such a truth that I believe it.”
Norwegian pop singer Sigrid has found overnight success, her "no-bullshit" attitude was met with applause.
Fredo is a fellow British rapper, his single with Dave "Funky Friday" reached number one in 2018.
Tickets are priced at £30+ and are on sale on Ticketmaster.
