In recent years, the Wireless Festival has become one of the UK’s most celebrated. It’s super fitting, then, that this year organizers have tapped two of music’s biggest royals to headline – Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z.
Full story below…
A major coup for the two-day extravaganza, the announcement was made moments ago.
Day one of the London spectacle (Friday July 12th 2013) will see Timberlake headline, while the likes of Frank Ocean, Trey Songz, Snoop Dogg, Miguel, and John Legend complete the bill.
In main-eventing day 2 (July 13th), Jay-Z will be joined by Roc Nation protégée Rita Ora, as well as Kendrick Lamar, Emeli Sande, Miguel, and Calvin Harris.
The event’s pairing of H.O.V and JT is undoubtedly a deliberate one and extends the duo’s new creative partnership. Indeed, the two can be heard on chart smash ‘Suit & Tie’ and will also embark on a joint stadium tour in support of Timberlake’s comeback album ‘The 20/20 Experience’.
Reports suggest a new Jay-Z project could also be in the pipeline too – which would make the rapper’s “return” and strategic partnership with Timberlake all the more understandable. Still, as an established touring juggernaut, it’s entirely plausible that the mogul is simply stacking his coins while re-affirming himself as just that — a touring juggernaut.
Easily the best collective line-up Wireless has ever had, this year truly sees the show join the upper echelon of global festivals able to secure the A-List as well as a stellar supporting cast. We’ll be there! Will you? Tickets go on sale on February 22nd. Click here to buy yours!
