A new king was crowned during this year’s BRIT Awards. The coronation took place in a sea of fire where Dave, armed with a flame throwing guitar, delivered a gospel infused version of ‘In Fire’ that cemented what most people already knew: Dave is the hottest rapper in the UK. Ever since is iconic breakthrough album ‘PSYCHODRAMA’ (2019) Dave has pretty much done it all: winning a Mercury as well as a BRIT Award, earning rave reviews, calling Boris Johnson a real racist and going viral after trading bars with a fan at Glastonbury – Dave’s star never stopped its rapid rising.
Dave’s new album ‘We’re All Alone In This Together’ (2021) was arguably the most anticipated second album in UK rap history but somehow it still triumphed the expecations. Over sparse productions, Dave continues his unmatched wordplay about everything from his experiences as a child born to British-Nigerian immigrants to the prize of his material possessions, proving his lyrics are second to none. This spring Dave will perform an intimate show at Fållan in Stockholm (sold out immediately), and in the summer he will not only be headlining festivals such as Reading and Leeds, but will also play Way Out West. His performance in Slottsskogen will be his biggest show in Scandinavia to date.
Dave will be playing on Saturday August 13th.
