Reading & Leeds 22-24 August 2008



Watch a clip of Dizzee's Reading set

Highlights from Reading and Leeds festivals 2008


From grime underground to rock festivals, Dizzee is undoubtedly British hip-hop's biggest cross-over artist. Hard beats and raw lyrics make the East Londoner seem logical on the same bill as Rage Against The Machine.
