Drake, Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar to Headline Wireless Festival

Young Money and TDE rappers lead three-day music festival in London.

Young Money and TDE top the bill for London’s Wireless Festival. Drake, Nicki Minaj and Kendrick Lamar will headline the three-day festival returning to Finsbury Park July 3-5.

All three rappers have taken the Wireless Festival stage before, but not as the marquee acts. Lamar performed in 2013, preceded by Minaj and Drake the year before. Drizzy was originally supposed to headline last year but was forced to drop out at the last minute due to an illness. Kanye West stepped in to take his place.

This year, Drake will lead the first night, Lamar and EDM DJ Avic II are up for night two, and Minaj and David Guetta are set to close out the festival. 

The remainder of the lineup includes G-Eazy, Joey Bada$, Childish Gambino, August Alsina, ILOVEMAKKONENJessie J, Logic, Arrested Development and Grandmaster Flash
