Sonar Hong Kong confirmed on their Facebook page that the grime star would be headlining the music, creativity and technology festival on March 28, with festival tickets going on sale at 9am on December 6.
Stormzy came to global attention in 2014, when he released Shut Up, a freestyle track on YouTube that went viral. He has gone on to become one of the most respected British artists in his genre, and has won a number of awards, including a Brit award for British Album of the Year last year, and the GQ Solo Artist of the Year this year.
He performed at Clockenflap 2017 on the Saturday night ahead of headliners The Prodigy.
We assume Ed Sheeran won't be coming with Stormzy, but here's a video to tide you over until March.
