FESTIVAL PREVIEW: Wireless Festival @ Finsbury Park, 06/07/18 – 08/07/18

The Verse’s Janna Radwan previews Wireless festival, taking place in Finsbury Park, London on 6th – 8th July 2018.

Since June 2005, Wireless festival has been the festival in the London region to go to. From headlining acts such as Jay Z, Drake and Rihanna to P!nk, Far East Movement and Basement Jaxx. Wireless has been on for over a decade now and it first started out with a rock influence to it. However, over the years it has evolved with society and what is “poppin”, one of the reasons it is so favoured. Wireless is getting increasingly popular every year, evidenced by the tickets selling out within minutes of their release.

This year’s lineup is the most spectacular with performers such as J.Cole, Stormzy, Cardi B and DJ KHALED! These are only to name a few big names that will appear throughout the Wireless festival weekend.

It is very delightful to see so many UK acts in the lineup this year. It really shows the world what us Brits can do! An upcoming British artist on the Sunday lineup is Not3s. He has an amazing upbeat song with Mabel called Fine Line That you all should listen to! This has helped him to bag an unforgettable opportunity and experience at this year’s Wireless festival. He is definitely an artist to watch out for at this year’s Wireless festival.

The Guardian’s, Hannah J Davies, reviewed last year’s festival and had a few interesting things to say. What I found intriguing was the talk about Wireless’s USP. Davies says, “from Drake’s collaborations with UK up-and-comers… “afrobeats” style – it’s now much easier to see the USP that the Finsbury Park weekender offers.”

Wireless is one of the most known festivals in the UK and is a must see! The vibes are always good and the music never disappoints.
