Tyler, The Creator made his return to the United Kingdom this weekend to promote the release of his new album, Igor, having pulled out of several bookings here over recent years.

The rapper announced on the location of a spontaneous gig in Peckham via Twitter, prompting thousands of weed-smoking teenagers with things like ‘good vibes only’ in their Instagram bios to take to the streets, desperate to catch a glimpse of their hero.

But the crowds were too big, too rowdy, that it was shut down by the police, much to disappointment of the Odd Future founder’s fans. This is how it panned out.
