On a high after his Glastonbury appearance last weekend, Stormzy has stepped in at the last minute to headline Open’er in Poland during the early hours of tomorrow morning.

“Stormzy is coming to Open’er,” the festival’s Twitter page reads. “This year’s Glastonbury headliner in just a few hours decided to help us, and we are very grateful for that.”

Stormzy’s Friday night Pyramid Stage performance became one of the most talked about of the Glastonbury weekend and played a big part in co-organiser Emily Eavis declaring it ‘the greatest ever’.

“It was a huge moment for us, up there with the all-time greatest Glastonbury headline performances and one for the history books,” she told the Glastonbury Free Press (via NME). “The perfect gig. I’m so happy for him, it could not have been better.”

“It also confirmed for me that our crowd is the best in the world. Watching that huge audience lock in and give so much back was very moving. The atmosphere was incredible. But then it has been since the gates opened.”
