Nas Performs at "The Ends"

1 June 2019

The Ends festival is a new three-day event set up in Croydon, South London, and when putting together their debut line-up, the organisers did not disappoint, delivering the finest in hip-hop, R&B, grime, and afrobeat.

ThePurpleVision attended the first night, with an electrifying performance by Nas (Wizkid & Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley headlined the subsequent days), while the seminal De La Soul also brought their unrivalled brand of hip-hop to UK audiences.

The evening had its touching moments, when DJ Rachel Anson led a tribute to the late Nipsey Hussle (she took over his scheduled slot), and balloons were released in his memory as the sun set behind us.

The Ends Festival is scheduled to return in 2020, and based on our experience, we definitely recommend making it a part of your regular summer festival schedule.
