Wireless Festival 2017 announces line-up: The Weeknd, Skepta and Chance the Rapper set to headline.

The London festival will return to Finsbury Park from the 7th till the 9th of July. Now in its 12th year, Wireless Festival is known for being the UK’s biggest urban music events, showcasing some of the hottest talent from around the globe. This year’s line-up is no different, with headline slots from The Weeknd, Skepta and Chance the Rapper.

Following his ground breaking win at the 2017 Grammys, unsigned Chicago native Chance the Rapper will headline the main stage on the Friday, joined by the likes of Bryson Tiller and Zara Larsson further down the bill.

Hot off the back of his performance at the Brits, grime all-star Skepta will turn up to shutdown the Saturday night. Following a headline performance as part of Boy Better Know last year, this year’s headline slot clearly demonstrates Skepta’s rise to prominence as an artist and the long-overdue recognition of grime within British pop culture. Saturday’s bill also plays host to some of the UK’s finest talent with East Londoner Wiley and South London’s Section Boyz playing alongside the likes of Sean Paul, Young Thug and Rae Sremmurd.

Duties of closing the festivities on the Sunday night go to R&B star boy The Weeknd, who will follow performances from the likes of fellow Canadian Tory Lanez and hip hop legend Nas.
