Wireless Festival 2017 – Nextfest Preview

Probably the UK’s largest urban music event, Wireless Festival returns this year, between July 7th – 9th, with one of the biggest line-ups since they kicked off twelve years ago.

London’s Finsbury Park is the venue for the event and is set to become a playground for beats and bass lovers, as some of the most prominent acts on the scene today will be welcomed to the stage. With so much music, plus plenty of additional attractions to enjoy, the 2017 edition of Wireless Festival looks like it is well and truly going to go off, big time.

While pretty much all the artists playing are guaranteed to bring the fire, there are a select few who we recommend heading over to watch when they hit the stage. One such artist is one of our headliners. The man in question is Chance the Rapper, who hits London before delving into a forty date US tour. The rapper and instrumentalist has received critical acclaim since his second mixtape, Acid Rap, was unleashed.

Since then, he has received multiple awards, in particular, three Grammies, which included one for his Colouring Book mixtape. Needless to say, Chance will undoubtedly blow the proverbial roof off Finsbury Park.

Next up is an artist who should be instantly recognisable; Sean Paul, who is possibly one of the most widely recognised dancehall artists on the planet. Not only is he hugely successful in his own right, but he has also collaborated with other well-respected artists, including Mr VegasBlu Cantrell, and Beyonce. He has appeared in several films and has even appeared in a number of Def Jam computer games.

Sean will likely be performing a wide range of his hits, such as Get BusyGimme the Light, and Temperature, although we wouldn’t put it past him to perform some of his lesser known tracks from the start of his career. However, given that he has a new studio album coming up, No Lie, he’s likely to offer a sneak peek at that, too.

Finally, we suggest checking out the UK festival exclusive of Nas. Gaining notoriety in 1994, following the release of probably-the-best-hip-hop-album-ever, IllmaticNas has seen an astronomical climb to the top of his game. His second album, It Was Written, flung him even further into the limelight. Seriously, you don’t get the opportunity to see artists like Nas every day, so you really should head over to the main stage and catch him performing.

If you fancy a break from the music (although we’re not sure why you would want to, with so many amazing artists appearing), then you can have a look around the market stall selling merchandise from your favourite performers, or head over to the fairground to enjoy a few of the rides. With so much music going on, however, we suggest finding a good spot and staying in it!

Wireless Festival takes place at Finsbury Park, London, from 7-9 July 2017. For the full line-up, plus photos, videos and ticket information head to our Wireless Festival information page.
