Subscribe to Wireless Festival alerts

Wireless Festival has announced more acts to their stellar line up. Rappers Nicki Minaj and Pitbull and electronic duo Chase and Status will be playing at the festival, along with respective Saturday and Sunday headliners Drake and Rihanna, who will be playing her only UK date of 2012 at the event.

Minaj will not only be playing Wireless; she will also travel to Balado, Scotland, to headline at T in the Park. Given her most recent performance of new track Roman Holiday at the Grammy Awards this year, her set is sure to be something festival goers won't forget in a hurry.

Pitbull has also achieved success in the UK with the singles I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho) in 2009; a featured spot on Jennifer Lopez' single On The Floor in 2011 and his most recent single, International Love, featuring Chris Brown in 2012.

Other acts confirmed to be attending are TULISA; Cher Lloyd and rising girl group Stooshe. Tulisa is currently in LA working on her debut solo album, which will be released in May 2012; she will, no doubt, be performing tracks from the album, which has yet to be titled, at the festival. Lloyd is well known for appearing on The X Factor in 2010 and her debut single Swagger Jagger, which reached number one in 2011.

Wireless Festival will take place in Hyde Park, London from 6-8 July 2012. Tickets are available to buy from the official website.
Other acts confirmed include:
Jessie J
J Cole
Wiz Khalifa
Rizzle Kicks
Cher Lloyd
Flux Pavilion
