Massive Turn Out For Spotify Who We Be in Birmingham!

Spotify UK’s Who We Be event presented by Live Nation took place to a sold-out crowd of 3,000 at the O2 Academy Birmingham. Who We Be saw an insane line-up of some of urban music’s biggest acts, including Mabel, Yungen, Nines, Sneakbo, Jaykae, Ms Banks.

The Who We Be live event, which takes inspiration from the Spotify playlist of the same name, saw the best of street sounds music under one roof. A celebration of both British urban, grime and hip-hop talent, with superstar Mabel taking the stage, performing her hit song ‘Finders Keepers’.
The crowd also enjoyed the best of British talent with performances from Birmingham’s own Jaykae and London’s Yungen, who performed his hit ‘Bestie’.
A surprise performance from rising rapper Ramz tore the roof off O2 Academy Birmingham as he dropped his infamous track ‘Barking’, with fans singing along to every line. Rap duo Lotto Boyz and renowned producer Steel Banglez also joined the line-up at the city’s leading music venue.

We are very proud to support new and exciting urban talent. We brought together an amazing line up of artists together last year at Alexandra Palace and we did the same here in Birmingham tonight. The rise of Birmingham rap is unstoppable, that’s why we chose to bring Who We Be here, to celebrate the best of rap and grime talent in England’s second city. Thanks to all of the incredible performers and to the three thousand fans who celebrated with us tonight” – Austin Daboh, Senior Editor at Spotify
