Grime's relationship with Glastonbury has always been interesting to say the least. Often underrepresented, and seldom on the main stage, it's usually only been the top tier (Wiley, Dizzee and maybe Skepta) that get to make an appearance. While this year wasn't exactly grime central, there were at least a few more grime sets. Hell, even Wiley played and no one ever thought that would happen.
Whether it's Dizzee's high energy set on the West Holts stage, Kano's triumphant performance at The Park (which has already become one of the weekend's most talked-about sets), Wiley making an appearance after vowing never to return all those years ago, or Stormzy's impassioned speech about the Grenfell Tower fire, Glastonbury 2017 was an emotional time for grime heads, filled with moments we never expected to see.
But it wasn't just the big top-line acts at Worthy Farm this year. AJ Tracey, Nadia Rose, 67, Mist and Dave could be seen on the Sonic Stage on Friday; on Saturday you could catch Fekky, JayKae and Ms. Banks at The Blues; and then on Sunday P Money, Abra Cadabra and Rejjie Snow all played the Wow! Stage.
Slowly but surely, grime is making its presence felt at Worthy Farm. In fact, at this very moment, countless thinkpieces are being written about the odds of a Dizzee or Stormzy headline for 2019.
