2017 Wireless Festival, London


Affair: 2017 Wireless Festival

When: Friday, July 7 - Saturday, July 9, 2017

Hot Spot: Finsbury Park, London, UK

Deets: Wireless Festival is returning to London’s Finsbury Park for the ultimate summer party. Taking place 7th – 9th July, Wireless 2017 will play host to global superstars Chance The Rapper, Skepta and The Weeknd, who will be joined by some of the biggest names in music.

Twelve years since first being introduced on to the festival calendar, Wireless has grown to become the biggest urban music event in the UK, bringing some of the world’s hottest acts and emerging talent to the capital.

Headlining Friday is Chance The Rapper, who is rapidly establishing himself as the hottest hip-hop artist of his generation. Since the release of his first official mixtape 10 Day in 2012, he’s won three Grammy Awards, collaborated with Kanye West on the critically acclaimed Life of Pablo, and clocked over fifty-seven million streams of his debut album Coloring Book. Having recently announced his 40 date US tour, including two sold out shows at the Hollywood Bowl, this is one act not to miss at Wireless 2017.

Following a momentous performance with Boy Better Know last year, London’s very own grime luminary Skepta will return to Finsbury Park as Saturday’s headliner. Last year saw his ground-breaking album Konnichiwa receive a well-deserved Mercury Prize among countless other awards and take his music worldwide. This summer, Wireless is delighted to host Skepta performing to his home crowd.

Known for some of the biggest hits of the past year, two-time Grammy Award Winner The Weeknd will be closing Wireless Festival on Sunday. The performer, producer and songwriter made history in November 2016 by breaking Spotify records with single ‘Starboy’, which still hold the record for most streams in 24 hours by a single artist.
