When Wireless announced a mouthwatering line-up of hip hop and R&B royalty last year (remember Jay Z and JT tag-teaming the Sunday show before introducing RiRi to the stage as a special guest?), we assumed it was a one-off. Never did we expect that Finsbury Park would welcome a second set of chart-topping blingtastic megastars. But just this morning Wireless revealed yet another scorching bill, so hot that it’s left us in a sweat.
Headlining 2014’s Friday date (July 4) is none other than Yeezy himself, Mr Kanye West, while man of the moment Pharrell Williams and dance connoisseurs Basement Jaxx make up the support. Saturday (July 5) will see rapper Drake seduce the crowd with his sexy riddims, but that’s if London’s very own Rudimental haven’t already cracked the concrete with their mix of d’n’b and house bangers beforehand. Topping off the weekend will be Andre 3000 and Big Boi (billed below Bruno Mars), who reunite as the so fresh and so clean rap duo OutKast.
Snap up your tickets pronto, people. With such a belter of a line-up, those babies will fly. Liz Darke
