There’s a lot to look forward for Wireless’ 10th anniversary event.
New Look Wireless Festival is returning to Finsbury Park, following last year’s success at the North London venue, celebrating its 10th birthday this year. The 2015 line-up is set to be the biggest yet with headliners Drake, Avicii and David Guetta playing to the 40,000 a day capacity festival.
For the first time, Wireless festival goers expect to see karaoke, a tone ‘n’ tweak area and plenty of choice in the food court. In celebration of their 10th birthday though, here are Wireless’ best acts to see across the line up from this weekend.
Grandmaster Flash: The legendary hip hop DJ is playing the Sunday, following his recent appearance at last week’s Glastonbury, alongside Mark Ronson’s set. Expect to hear favourites from The Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Flash – we’re hoping for such hits as ‘The Message’ and ‘Freedom’ from the decade spanning career of the American recording artist.
Kendrick Lamar: Kendrick Lamar is hitting up Saturday before headliner Avicii. Expect to see the 25-year-old play material from his recent number one album ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’; a record which sees a darker side to the rapper, and has been greatly received by both fans and critics.
Avicii: Headlining Wireless on the Saturday is Avicii. The Swedish songwriter and producer is expected to pull in one of the biggest crowds across the event. He’ll be bringing Las Vegas to London with lasers and pyrotechnics from his stage show along with a collection of hits we hope will include ‘Levels’ and ‘I Could Be The One’. Achieving monumental worldwide success with ‘Wake Me Up’ reaching the number 1 spot in 81 countries, this will be a rare UK appearance and a very special treat from Avicii for Wireless goers.
Drake: Following his headline slot at last weekend’s 10th celebration party for Wireless, Drake once again headlines the Friday of the event. The Grammy award-winner will no doubt win over fans with songs from his fourth album ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’.
A$AP Rocky: Having recently announced a European tour, A$AP Rocky bring his New York music to Wireless festival on the Friday playing before Drake’s headliner slot. Expect to hear music from his second album ‘At.Long.Last.A$AP’ which was released earlier this year.
Wireless Festival takes place at Finsbury Park on July 3rd-5th 2015.
