See What Happened At Giggs' Exclusive London Show
As well as performances from Ms Banks, Suspect, Sian Anderson, and some surprise guests too!
Giggs, one of the largest names in Grime, came for a massive performance in his home city of London to headline the Casa BACARDÍ event at Oval Space.
Aside from his incredible success within the community, Giggs is a definitive part of grime history in playing a significant hand in its recent international acclaim - and now, through having tracks with artists like Drake, he's proved his salt and returns to his home town victorious.
This event comes merely weeks after his massive mainstage show at Wireless Festival 2018, where he created one of the most iconic moments of the entire fest when he brought Drake onstage as a surprise guest, and had tens of thousands of fans going WILD.
The event took place at Oval Space, where the intimate venue of an old converted warehouse which overlooks the decommissioned gas works really set the personal, underground vibe for the shows.
The Casa BACARDÍ event, part of their nationwide Do What Moves You campaign, was more than just a regular gig night though - it worked as more of an evening festival, with the stage constantly populated with artists and DJs leading up to Giggs' headline set.
All proceeds from the ticket sales for the night (which sold out quickly within a few hours after they were released) all went towards the non-profit Lonely Whale Foundation.
Suspect got the crowd going with a selection of his fire tracks like classic 'Fbg' and more recent hit 'Sessions'. He kept the energy levels high, performing bangers back to back which had everyone hyped.
Sian Anderson on the decks between performances rode the vibe perfectly, delivering hits from UK Grime to US Trap and making sure the energy was always going up and up.
Later, Ms Banks brought all of her charisma and more to the stage as she had the crowd gassed over bangers like 'Clap' and owned the stage with the more recent track 'What They Do'.
Shortly before Giggs was due to come onto stage, she rounded up her set with the MASSIVE crowdpleaser 'R.I.P. (Ft. Loski)'.
Giggs' Headline Performance
Giggs' recent Wireless Fest performance, hyping tens of thousands of fans on a huge stage was unbelievable - but this latest show was of a different breed.
Despite the Grime rapper's popularity and ability to draw such a huge crowd, this show was a more intimate and exclusive affair, allowing fans to be up close and personal with the artist. It harked back Grime's earlier days before the international appeal and co-sign from Drake - filled with raw energy, it was all about the music and the high-octane vibe.
By the point he came onto stage, hype was at boiling point and the crowd went absolutely wild. He brought on all the energy when he dropped hit 'Talkin' Da Hardest'.
As crowds continued and the moshing was only getting started. When Giggs banged 'Whippin Excursion' the crowds really were going IN.
Plus, as massive surprise had the crowd extra hyped when Chip walked through the back of the crowd, and joined Giggs on stage for the end of his performance. Hollowman plus Chip rapping together on stage had the crowd LOSING IT.
At the end of the set, to finish off the crowd and go out with a bang, he dropped his collaboration with Drake 'KMT' and even reloaded it to make it hit twice as hard. It's safe to say the entire crowd sang every single world whilst bouncing up and down.
The event was a massive success and was the perfect venue for a Grime artist like Giggs, to really feel all the energy he's capable of delivering.
