Aubrey Drake Graham has come a long way since ‘Degrassi’. Once a gawky young actor, he’s now a global musical superstar who can smash everything form crooning R&B to downbeat, biting hip hop. But one thing he’s never quite managed to do is headline a London festival twice in a single week. 

Drake was booked to headline Wireless in 2010 and 2014, but pulled out both times (though he did manage to make it to the festival in 2012). Now he’s back, and making up for that pair of cancellations by headlining not only Friday of the Wireless weekend but also the festival’s tenth birthday party the weekend before, on June 28. The line-up for the one-day Wireless 10 festival also includes Rita Ora, Chance The Rapper, Public Enemy and De La Soul.

Book Wireless 10 tickets tomorrow at 9am.

Also on sale tomorrow: James Bay, Jamie XX, Jurassic 5, Eagles Of Death Metal and The Maccabees. On sale on Friday: Stormzy and Fuse ODG. For more, check our weekly list of just-announced London gigs.
