Snoop Dogg

Story by Jack Foley

SNOOP Dogg is to return to the UK with a standout slot as a very special guest performer at the Wireless Festival in Hyde Park on Saturday, July 3.

Heralded as one of the most masterful MC’s of our time, Snoop Dogg last played Hyde Park in 2005, where he was widely regarded as ‘the undoubted musical highlight’ at Live 8.

Five years on, the Doggfather will mix it up with songs from new album, Malice in Wonderland, as well as taking the crowd on a trip down memory lane with classic hits from his twenty years at the top.

Snoop’s appearance will be followed, on Sunday, July 4, by special guest slots from legendary guitarist Slash and rap collective D12.

Making his name as one of the world’s best guitarists of all time as lead guitarist for Guns ‘N’ Roses, Slash achieved further critical acclaim as part of Velvet Revolver and will release his debut solo album Slash on May 10.

Hailing from Detroit, hip hop collective D12 have sold over 10 million albums worldwide since forming in 1990 by bringing together the very best of Detroit’s MC’s, with Eminem amongst the original members.

Already joining Slash and D12 on the Sunday bill, which is being headlined by JAY-Z, are Lily Allen, Chase & Status and Friendly Fires.

New additions to the Sunday line-up, meanwhile, are Dan Le Sac, Wiley, Roll Deep, Tala Riley, McLean and Chiddy Bang.

And the opening Friday welcomes the addition of Danish indie pop starlets Alphabeat.
