He scored a huge hit with 2010 single Pass Out, which soared to number one in the UK charts, before going on to Stateside success with Written in the Stars, Frisky and Miami 2 Ibiza.

Tinie Tempah’s new album Youth was released in January.

“I wanted to give a nod to all of the genres of music I heard growing up that made me want to be a rapper,” he said.

“The good thing about being from London is that you hear so many different styles of music, and are exposed to so many different things.

“I wanted to make an album that felt nostalgic with elements of those big British sounds from different genres, whether that was garage, grime, hip-hop or R&B.”

The announcement comes hot on the heels of other star acts confirming they are heading to Gibraltar for the festival, including Fatboy Slim, the Vaccines, Clean Bandit and Craig David.
