Stormzy announces This Is What We Mean Day at All Points East festival

Stormzy has announced that he will headline one day of next year’s All Points East festival in London. The day will be branded This Is What We Mean Day, after the title of his new album, and feature a line-up curated by the rapper himself.

“I was thinking what’s next, cos we’ve done three O2s, shut that down”, says Stormzy. “I said to the team, we gotta do something bigger, something better, something different. We were having back to back meetings, bouncing ideas. Then it hit me, I started jotting down ideas thinking – live band, need a live band. August 2023, a summer time thing, outside, for the people, always for my people. So August 2023, Victoria Park, more info coming soon. This Is What We Mean Day. Hard”.

As he noted there, Stormzy sold out three nights at the O2 Arena in London earlier this year, not to mention the rest of his UK tour. This Is What We Mean Day will be his only UK festival date in 2023.

‘This Is What We Mean’ is set for release on 25 Nov.
