Renowned as the greatest rapper of all time, NAS is making an appearance at Victoria Park. NAS (Nasir Jones) first reached an international audience when his track “Halftime” was tapped by producer MC Serch as the opening cut on 1992’s Zebrahead movie soundtrack. His critically acclaimed debut came in 1994, the RIAA platinum album “Illmatic,” followed by successive chart-toppers like “It Was Written” and “God’s Son.” Over the years, NAS has achieved numerous platinum records, GRAMMY nominations, and notable collaborations, solidifying his status as a hip-hop king.

EZRA COLLECTIVE dominated 2023, having recently captivated a sold-out audience at the Royal Albert Hall and clinched a Mercury Prize for their latest album Where I’m Meant to Be. This triumph marked a historic win for jazz, described by the band as a “vibrant celebration of life and a testament to their evolving hybrid sound.” Their earlier successes include the critically acclaimed debut album “You Can’t Steal My Joy” in 2019 and a groundbreaking Glastonbury performance. The anticipation is high as EZRA COLLECTIVE returns to the Uber One presents All Points East stage, promising to once again be the soundtrack of our summer.

Leicester’s SAINTÉ brings a unique West Coast flavour to his music. Recognised for the smooth flow of his lyrics, showcased in his debut EP Local MVP, SAINTÉ effortlessly navigates diverse styles like hip-hop, jazz, and R&B, drawing inspiration from Pharrell, Drake, and Freddie Gibbs.

Essex native JOE JAMES’ unique style, marked by raw rhymes and effortless delivery, evokes deep emotions, creating a powerful connection with listeners across his discography. As GRM Daily puts it, “Being both a prolific artist and a top-tier wordsmith, JOE JAMES is definitely an artist worthy of keeping your eye on.”
