Meet the man who sets off Stormzy's festival flames

Some of the biggest artists are using more elaborate special effects to make their performances look increasingly impressive.

George Baker, 22, was one of those responsible for the flames - and other effects - during Stormzy's Glastonbury 2019 and Wireless 2018 shows.

The SFX project manager gave us a behind-the-scenes look at how he helps put them together.

He also thinks taste and smell will become a bigger part of artists' gigs in the future.

Presented by Steve Holden.
