Tens of thousands of fans descended into London’s Finsbury Park and Birmingham’s Perry Park at the weekend for the tenth Wireless Festival. It included triumphant sets from headliners Bruno Mars, Kanye West and Rudimental, who stepped up in Birmingham when Drake had to cancel whilst Kanye played two nights in London.
Wireless promoter Steve Homer from Live Nation said: “We’re proud to have celebrated our tenth Wireless Festival with a duel site this year and some of the very hottest names in music. The line up included Kanye West, Pharrell, Iggy Azalea, OutKast and the first UK Festival headline sets for Bruno Mars and Rudimental who both delivered unforgettable performances across an incredible weekend.”
The sun shone down on London’s Finsbury Park as the crowds danced their way to the line up of the summer. Fans were also treated to some surprise guests across the weekend as Rita Ora joined Iggy Azalea, Emeli Sandé joined Naughty Boy and Ella Eyre and John Newman went on with Rudimental for their songs “Waiting All Night” and “Feel the Love”.
For the first time ever, Wireless Festival also took place in Birmingham. Huge crowds descended onto the city’s Perry Park with highlights including Tinie Tempah’s rapturous set and Outkast who took to the stage for the debut UK performance of their 20th anniversary celebrations. The crowds were treated to spectacular performances throughout the weekend including Salt-n-Pepa who brought their sexy style and swagger to the UK stage for the first time in over 4 years.
As well as the enviable line up Finsbury Park featured an impressive food court, a fan photo booth and chill out areas whilst Birmingham’s Perry Park featured some of the very best names on the street food scene.
