V Festival 2017: Jonas Blue rocks crowd despite rain - review

By Charlotte Callear | Music | Published:

The ground shook from the bass and the crowd was bouncing for Jonas Blues' performance a V.

Rain didn't dampen spirits

The pop and dance DJ was back at the festival for a fantastic performance.

Despite the rain, that got heavier as the set went on, the crowd danced through it with the motivation of his MTV EMA and Brit Award nominee music blasting through the speakers.

"I first came onto the scene with a cover of a massive song and since then you have supported me ever since when it was hard to get onto the scene.

"Now I'm going to play Fast Cars."

Rain macs went on and hoods went up - but that didn't stop people pulling out moves ranging from a light bob to a full-on twerk.

On the chorus of Fast Cars people went crazy, jumping up in the air as smoke was blasted up from the stage.

He played on the keyboard against a dark backdrop looking cool in a black leather jacket with a white shirt and gelled hair.


He was joined by two singers, a musician on another key board, two guitarists and a drummer.

Excited crowds kept a massive ball up with Jonas Blue written on it throughout the performance.

"I need you to get low with me during the chorus"

Towards the end, the first few beats of his hit Mama had crowds screaming with excitement.

"Let me see your hands"

Crowds waved their hands around and clapped to Heartbeat and the final song Perfect Strangers. It was the perfect sign off to a fantastic performance.
