Drake, Kendrick Lamar & Nicki Minaj Will Headline 2015 Wireless Festival
After missing London's Wireless Festival last year due to an illness, Drake will honor his commitment by hitting the stage to headline the first of the festival's three days. Along with Drake, festival-goers will also get to see Kendrick Lamar and Nicki Minaj, who are scheduled to headline the next two nights. The massive festival will also feature hip-hop acts like A$AP Rocky, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Pusha T, Mary J. Blige, Rae Sremmurd, Joey Bada$$, iLoveMakonnen, G-Eazy, Little Simz, Childish Gambino, Grandmaster Flash, Arrested Development and 2014 XXL Freshmen August Alsina and Logic. The concert will take place from July 3-July 6 in London's Finsbury Park.
Drake is set to have a busy festival season. The Toronto MC will not only be a part of the Wireless Festival, he will also be headlining Coachella and Governor's Ball. Current XXL cover boy Kendrick Lamar will also be busy this summer. Along with Wireless, K. Dot is set to headline June's Bonnaroo festival. Both of these artists are headlining despite not having dropped an album since Kendrick's good Kid, m.A.A.d city in 2012 and Drake's Nothing Was The Same in 2013, respectively. If rumors are true, we should be getting a mixtape from Drake and an album from Kendrick soon.
The Wireless Festival is London's biggest summer music event. Past headliners include Kanye West (who filled in for Drake last year), Jay Z, Pharrell, Outkast and more. Tickets for the festival go on sale Tuesday Feb. 3.
