Australia + New Zealand February 2024
UK rap phenomenon Stormzy returns to Australia + New Zealand for Laneway Festival in February 2024!
A London-based MC of Ghanaian heritage known for his spirited blend of grime, gospel, and R&B, Stormzy is one of the U.K.’s most successful artists, with a trio of chart-topping, widely acclaimed albums to his name. Climbing out of the underground grime scene with a series of triumphant mixtapes, singles, and freestyles, he made his breakthrough in 2017 with his platinum-certified debut album, Gang Signs & Prayer.
Within five years of the release of his debut EP, he was a Glastonbury Festival headliner. His first number one hit single, “Vossi Bop,” preceded his sophomore album, 2019’s Heavy Is the Head. His introspective, ballad-heavy third album, This Is What I Mean, appeared in 2022, and he explored U.K. drill and Afroswing on subsequent singles like 2023’s “Longevity Flow.”
