'Dublin has a special place in my heart': Stormzy wore the tricolour and gave it socks on stage at Longitude

A special night.

THERE WAS NO doubting that Stormzy was the act people wanted to see at Longitude in Marley Park last night โ€“ and he certainly gave them a show.

Earlier in the day, he had let everyone know how special the Dublin crowd is to him, having previously tweeted out his love for the famous Smithfield mural:

And by all accounts, the gig last night was worth the headline appearance

It might be his first time headlining a festival, but it wonโ€™t be his last.

As is standard, someone threw the Irish flag up on stage for Stormzy to wear โ€“ and you could tell he was absolutely loving it

Legend! #merky #problem #longitude #stormzy #dublin #longitude2017

Hopefully after his reception last night, Dublin and Ireland will maintain that special place in his heart

There were, predictably, scenes throughout

Welcome back any time, Stormzy

The gauntlet has been well and truly thrown down for the rest of Longitude.

Some weekend ahead.
