Drake and Kanye West to headline Wireless Festival 2014

This summer’s Wireless Festival in Birmingham and London will be headlined by Kanye West, Drake and Bruno Mars. The event, which moves from the Olympic Park in east London to Finsbury Park and adds Perry Park in Birmingham, will take place over the 4-6 July. According to organisers, the Wireless Festival will be the public’s only opportunity to see Bruno Mars and Kanye West live in the UK during 2014.

This year’s event is the tenth Wireless Festival so to mark the occasion organisers have taken the festival outside of the capital for the first time. "We couldn't be more thrilled to mark this momentous anniversary by taking it to a second site, Perry Park in Birmingham," said promoter Steve Homer. “We are delighted to be welcoming back Drake and Kanye West as headliners and thrilled to secure Bruno Mars for his first UK Festival headline performance."

“They are perfect for Wireless Festival, securing these three artists plus many more world class acts continues to cement our reputation as a world-class leader on the festival circuit,” the promoter added.

Kanye West is riding high at the moment with his sixth studio album Yeezus. It topped the UK and US charts when it was released in June 2013. It’s since made 1 million sales worldwide.

In addition to the three headline acts, Pharrell Williams and Outkast will also be performing. Ellie Goulding has also been confirmed along with Clean Bandit, John Newman, Rudimental, Angel Haze and Basement Jaxx.

At the moment the event’s promoters are teasing us with a few highlights in the expectation that these big names will help them shift lots of tickets when they go on general release January 31. We’ll have more news on the other acts at Wireless 2014 over the coming weeks and months.
