We Got Wet & Wild With Example, Nero, Pro Green & More For Club MTV Swansea...Very Wet!
Thousands braved the elements with us for one epic night…
We came, we raved, we’re still wringing out our socks but it was TOTALLY WORTH IT. Club MTV descended on Swansea’s Singleton Park last night (24th September) for a massive open air gig featuring Nero, Example, Sigma, Jonas Blue, R3WIRE & Varski and Redlight and we had a blast, even if the rain soaked us to the bone.
Bass lover and underground star Redlight was our first billed act to take to the decks before Professor Green, now ‘Back On The Market’ and back on the scene, hit the mic and hyped up the crowd with hits old and new including ‘I Need You Tonight’, ‘Monster’ and ‘Read All About It.’
Having joined Club MTV in Gothenburg, Sweden the previous night, Jonas Blue ticked off his first ever gig in Wales gazing out to thousands of people all chanting his No.2 singles ‘Fast Car’ and ‘Perfect Strangers’ back at him. The crowd loved it so much he even played the latter twice!
Can we also take a minute to look at how good the stage looked too please? Just look at that:
That was Sigma, who stepped things up another level (or rather one half of Sigma, Cam had the day off to celebrate his wife’s birthday so we’ll forgive him) dropping some drum and bass bombs including their hit singles ‘Coming Home’, ‘Glitterball’, and No.1s ‘Nobody To Love’ and ‘Changing’.
Club MTV residents R3WIRE & Varski followed, bringing their now legendary energy to the Welsh town for an hour of pure fire before Example and DJ Wire went next level with bass drops aplenty and a some live Example classics thrown in for good measure.
As the rain hardened, our last act of the night took to the stage, with Nero’s Dan bringing dark and dirty drops to Singleton Park as the heavens hammered it down. ‘Satify’, ‘Won’t You (Be There)’, ‘Circles’ and ‘Promises’ sounded incredible before rain stopped play and we had to call it a night.
We knew it was going to rain but OMG. Shouts to everyone who stayed down the front until the very end - you are awesome.
From the council to the artists and all the soggy sausages up front, we want to say a massive diolch (thank you) to everyone who made the event possible and you guys who danced your faces off.
’Til next time Swansea.
