Wireless 2019

Story by Jack Foley

TRAVIS Scott, Cardi B, ASAP Rocky and Migos are to headline this year’s Wireless festival in London’s Finsbury Park, from July 5 to 7, 2019.

Cardi B and Migos will share headline duties on Friday night – a performance that will mark Cardi’s debut at Wireless given that she pulled out of last year’s event after becaming pregnant with her first child.

In 2017, she became the first solo female rapper to have No 1 song in the US in 20 years, while her album, Invasion of Privacy, also topped the US charts. She is currently nominated for five awards at next month’s Grammys.

Migos are one of the most successful rap groups in the US: in 2018, they released the album Culture II, while members Quavo and Takeoff have also released solo albums. The trio have collaborated with Calvin Harris, DJ Khaled and Gucci Mane, and will release their fourth studio album, Culture III, this year.

Travis Scott is a UK festival exclusive for Wireless. Now on a US tour to support his album Astroworld, he is nominated for three awards at the Grammys and has a Brit nomination for best international male.

Rapper ASAP Rocky, who has more than 4.5bn streams, will close the festival on Sunday night in another UK festival exclusive.

Wireless 2019 will also feature Future as a special guest on Saturday night, for his only UK date of 2019.

Other major rap artists to appear at the event over the weekend include Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug and Rae Sremmurd.

While R&B singer-songwriter Ella Mai, rapper Stefflon Don and Mancunian vocalist IAMDDB will also be taking to the stage, as will rappers Saweetie, Flohio and Lady Sanity.

Of the British talent taking part, further performers include one of London’s biggest rap and grime stars, AJ Tracey, as well as Not3s, Fredo, Loski, B Young and Cadet.

The festival will be returning to Finsbury Park for its 14th year, on the strict condition that performing artists avoid using any profanity.
