Music festivals reminiscent of Woodstock in 1969 are becoming an embedded staple in the music industry today. Coachella, Rock the Bells and SXSW are all prime examples of gatherings that emulate the paradigm of the original 3-day fiesta. As we look forward to 2015’s festival season, London has already treated us to one of the first stellar lineups of the year.
The UK Wireless Festival, sponsored by Yahoo!, welcomes, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Avicii and David Guetta as their headliners, making it a fest that can’t be missed. Drake is headlining the first Friday, Kendrick Lamar and Avicii are on Saturday, and Nicki Minaj is with David Guetta on Sunday.
If that doesn’t already sound like a powerhouse roster, expect Joey Bada$$, iLoveMakonnen, Logic, Childish Gambino, August Alsina, Grandmaster Flash to amp up the energy there, too. More artists will be announced as the date nears. Hopefully all the domestic readers have some flyer points racked up.
The festivities will take place July 3-5 in London’s Finsbury Park. You’ll be able to snag your tickets on Tuesday Feb. 3.
