As the Yorkshire Evening Post reports, the band’s main stage set was cut short at Leeds, following what many reported to be an altercation on stage. Leeds Live added that the Bradford rappers had brought out family members and friends for their Yorkshire homecoming performance, before their set came to an abrupt end.

A police spokesperson later released a statement confirming that they had arrested “two people following an incident on stage at Leeds Festival,” revealing that “two people have been bailed pending further enquiries.”

Today at the sister site at Reading Festival, the band’s slot on Main Stage West was filled by Digga D.
