Uniquely, witchcraft is a huge inspiration for his music, having grown up with a mother who practices it, with ArrDee himself being a believer in the significance of crystals. ArrDee’s story is one of extraordinary and unexpected success – this time a year and a half ago, Riley Davis was working the graveyard shift in an Amazon warehouse and now he’s appearing on stages worldwide as ArrDee, a rapper with four top ten hits to his name. After a run of viral music videos on YouTube, including Cheeky Bars and 6am in Brighton, he was invited by Tion Wayne to provide a guest verse on his track Body … and the rest is history.

Tickets are going to fly, so make sure you secure your spot. For more information on ArrDee’s shows, and to sign up for the pre-sale, head here.
