Run the Jewels are more than capable of headlining the Jeremy Corbyn show at Glastonbury 2017

This isn't just a musical follow-up to Jeremy Corbyn's introduction of the band.
Glastonbury was always going to be an important show for Run The Jewels, who bring a fire to the topics that are currently dominating our day to day lives. But today it comes with extra weight; when it hits, it hits hard.

This isn’t just a musical follow-up to Jeremy Corbyn’s introduction of the band: relying more on spotlights and questions than insistence, RTJ’s blend of humour and humanity has never felt more powerful. And neither has the crowd.

They make sure to elevate and find space for anyone without a platform – inclusion and invitation are high on the agenda – but perhaps more importantly, it’s fun. The future is hopeful, but it doesn’t have to stop the party in the present.

Emotionally charged and larger than life, the band’s underground jokes and sofa conversations fill Glastonbury’s biggest stage with surprising ease as El-P and Killer Mike embrace what makes them strong, and laugh and how it’s even happened.

You can watch Run The Jewels’ full set via BBC iPlayer here.
