The London festival will also feature DJ Khaled, J Cole, Wiley and dozens more rap and grime artists
London festival Wireless has announced its 2018 line-up. Taking place in Finsbury Park from 6–8 July, the weekender’s headliners are J Cole, DJ Khaled and friends, and Stormzy, heading up a strong showing for grime and black British talent.
Further down the bill, British rap veterans Wiley, Giggs and Wretch 32 rub shoulders with a younger generation, including J Hus, Ramz, Not3s and Mostack, and scene associates such as Mabel.The festival has in previous years featured predominantly hip-hop and pop acts. This year, however, the focus is largely on the former, and another strong mix of figureheads and breakthrough acts: Rick Ross and Big Sean rub up against upstarts Cardi B, Post Malone, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Pump, Migos and more.
Tickets for the festival are on sale now. Wireless originated in London in 2005, moving between various sites before settling in its current home of Finsbury Park in 2014, where it attracts approximately 50,000 people.
