Boy Better Know Takeover sells out The O2

Drake, Giggs and Lethal Bizzle were surprise guests at Sunday's sold-out Boy Better Know Takeover at The O2. 

Promoted by Robomagic and Festival Republic, the event was billed as featuring the best of grime and urban music under one roof.

Acts to appear included J Hus, Ghetts, Chip, MHD, Mabel and Donae’O, while Drake appeared with British rapper Giggs for a performance of their single, KMT.

Away from the main stage, Nike created a custom SB skate park and 5-a-side football pitch in the Quadrant area outside the O2. Hosted by Radar Radio featuring Snoochie Shy, P Montana, Big Zuu, Logan Sama and many more, skaters were invited for free lessons from some of Nike SB’s top UK riders. The 5-a-side tournament saw Boy Better Know take on YouTube's Sidemen FC.

For gaming fans, Activision provided ticket holders the chance to be one of the first to play the hugely anticipated Call of Duty: WWII. Members of BBK, including JME, popped into the gaming lounge to check out the new game for the first time and even challenge attendees to multiplayer matches.
