Day one of WILD LIFE saw a variety of artist’s kick off the festival to a great start.
UK female rapper Stefflon Don performed over on the WILD LIFE stage performing her hit tracks “Real Ting,” and "16 shots". Already a household name on the rap scene after becoming popular collaborating with Giggs and Krept & Konan, she certainly had the crowd buzzing as she danced with both aggression and showcased her lyrical wit.
Following Stefflon Don's performance was UK grime artist Giggs who proved to be a popular choice, especially among the younger crowds. It was clear that UK rap and grime was a huge element at this year's festival with Stormzy and JME headlining the evening shows.
It wasn't long before Zara Larsson and British electronic music group Clean Bandit took to the stage both performing their own sets and then collaborating with each other. The Swedish Pop princess Zara sung a selection of her hits including Lush Life and Symphony while Clean Bandit stunned the audience with incredible vocals. We bumped into them backstage for a quick chat and picture after they had finished.
Before the evening headliners began George Ezra took to the WILD LIFE stage setting an upbeat and soulful mood across the festival grounds and encouraging fans to sing along to his hit 'Budapest'.
The evening ended with Rudimental taking over the Terminal stage followed by Brighton resident and legendary DJ Fatboy Slim who drew in an extremely large crowd and played his classic hits.
