See www.wirelessfestival.co.uk for further information.
Lil'Wayne protege and former actor, the Grammy Award-winning, Young Money / Cash Money recording artist from Canada is a passionate and dynamic performer, renowned for his energetic performances and creative stage designs. Drake enjoyed a landmark 2013, winning his first-ever Grammy Award in the category of Best Rap Album for his critically revered platinum album, 'Take Care', and has remained a distinctive presence across both hip-hop and popular culture.
Drake tour dates
Grammy nominated Trinidadian Hip Hop, R&B and Rap recording artist and songwriter Nicki first broke through with her multi-platinum selling 2011 debut album, Pink Friday, which went on to achieve the most charted singles by any female rap album in Billboard history. Taking time out from her own music, Minaj went on to judge the 12th season of 'American Idol' along with making her film debut in 'Ice Age: Continental Drift', before returning with third album 'The Pinkprint' in 2014. With her distinctive rap style and wild choices of colourful costumes and wigs, Minaj has become both a fashion icon and a spectacle in concert.
Nicki Minaj tour dates
Example's meteoric rise from fresh-faced Fulham rapper to worldwide club anthem superstar has been nothing short of spectacular. Since hitting the charts in 2009, Example has gone from strength to strength, with hit singles such as 'Kickstarts' and 'Changed The Way You Kissed Me' the summer anthems of the last two years.
Example tour dates
U.S. hip hop star who cites Camp Lo, The Notorious B.I.G. and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony amongst his influences.
Wiz Khalifa tour dates
One of the UK's best freestylers/rappers, Professor Green (real name Stephen Manderson) made a name for himself as a battle MC from Hackney, East London, winning the prestigious freestyle night 'Jump-Off' twice in a row, which brought him to the attention of talent scouts and The Streets band member Mike Skinner. Littering his lyrics with wry pop culture references, a sharp sense of humour and honesty, Professor Green has produced and collaborated with a host of musicians, including Lily Allen.
Professor Green tour dates
Nero have become a big name in both the Drum and Bass and Dubstep scenes, often fusing both styles of music in their DJ sets. They started with DnB, joining DJ SS's Formation Records in the Summer of 2004. Since then Dan and Joe's tracks have caused quite a stir, with the recent success of their singles ‘Me and You’, ‘Act Like You Know’ and ‘Promises’ demonstrating what an exciting couple of years the band has had.
Now a fully formed three-piece, with singer Alana front and centre like never before, Dan feels the shift in focus is a significant step. “Not many electronic acts have just one singer, but we always wanted to go out like a band,” he says, adding with a laugh: “It’s especially nice as Joe and I can just blend into the background.”
Nero tour dates
N-Dubz singer and X Factor judge, Tulisa has also launched a solo career. With a number of massive hit singles and albums under her belt as part of the UK urban trio, she's already experienced massive success, and with her new status as the nation's sweetheart, her solo career looks set to be even bigger.
Tulisa tour dates
D'Banj is the stage name of Nigerian Afropop and R&B artist Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo. Notching up the accolade of the best-selling artist at the 2014 World Music Awards, he also has three MTV awards to add to his shelf. He is perhaps best known internationally for his 2012 summer hit 'Oliver Twist'. This slice of uptempo electronic dance fused with Afrobeat reached no.9 on the official UK top 40.
D'Banj tour dates
British-Albanian mezzo-soprano r'n'b queen Rita Ora has been around for a while, but came to full prominence in 2012 when she provided the vocals for DJ Fresh's 'Hot Right Now', which topped the UK singles chart. Rita followed this with her own No.1 singles 'R.I.P' and 'How We Do (Party)', making her the only artist to have three No.1 singles in a row in 2012. The release of her debut album 'ORA' rounded off her incredible run also claiming the No.1 spot. 2015 saw her become mentor and judge as she took to the famous spinning chairs on BBC's The Voice.
Rita Ora tour dates
Great hip hop outfit making the kind of stuff that De La Soul, Jurassic 5 and Black Eyed Peas would be proud of. They're old skool, they're slick and they're funky as hell.
Hilltop Hoods tour dates
It is not very often you come across an act that is so unique sounding yet, at the same time, instantly recognisable. An act that can traverse genres with such skill and dexterity like they have been doing it for years; fusing the current desire for wild electronic productions and a pop sensibility that everyone enjoys.
AlunaGeorge tour dates
