In a statement on its website, the festival said they were alerted to a possible security threat that an individual might have been carrying a weapon.

Organizers explain that: “A small number of attendees, including Stormzy’s manager, was escorted to the nearest exit, searched and no weapon was found.”

The festival apologized to Stormzy and his team and added: “We are doing everything we can to understand the full situation and are treating this with the utmost seriousness to ensure this does not happen again.”
