Dizzee Rascal prefers more intimate gigs to festivals.

The 'Bonkers' rapper like the atmosphere of a smaller concert as he feels a stronger connection to his fans.

Speaking about his performances at Ibiza and Mallorca Live at clubs last week, he said: ''It's better because you just make that connection straight away and when you've got the connection it's just love from there.

''The vibe is the same as a big festival. I see moshpits, lunatics jumping around... It just felt the same, but closer, it felt a bit better.''

The fun-loving star enjoyed the party atmosphere in clubs Eden and BCM as the festivals get into their eight week, and he says he loves The Feeling he gets from club gigs.

He enthused: ''You'll get knocked around, you'll get sweaty, it's the most fun. It's just euphoric man, it's love, that's all it is.''

The entrepreneur is looking forward to the upcoming year, and revealed that he's back in the studio writing a new album as well as mentoring new acts.

Dizzee said: ''I've got my internet channel dirtytv.com, there's a lot of fun content on there. My record label, I've got an artist called Pepper whose album I'm working on and my album as well.''
