Is it just me or did the UK’s Wireless Festival 2014 just blow every other festival lineup out of the water? Let’s take a quick glance down the initial artist announcements: Kanye West, Pharrell, Basement Jaxx, Drake, Rudimental, Pretty Lights, Chance the Rapper, Bruno Mars, OutKast, Ellie Goulding, Clean Bandit… I’ll stop before I get ahead of myself. These are just a few of the featured artists on the festival bill, among the others listed above and many more to be announced. Set for the weekend of July 4th, the concert will take place at two different locations simultaneously – the Finsbury Park in London and Perry Park in Birmingham – with each day’s lineup rotating locations so everyone gets the full experience.
As always, Europe sweeps in and absolutely crushes the competition with their rich tradition of impeccable music festivals. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 9am. Listen to the festival act Clean Bandit’s current #1 single in the UK, “Rather Be” featuring Jess Glynne, below.
