London, Jan 31 (IANS) Singers Nicki Minaj, Avicii and Drake are said to be headlining Wireless Festival this year.
It will be Minaj’s first return to the annual British music event this summer since her appearance in 2012, while Drake had to pull out of headlining the three-day music event last year due to illness, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“Nicki is going to be the main attraction this year. It’s a real coup as, at the moment, it is her only British festival appearance. The organisers are hoping she does something really sexy on stage for her British fans.
“It’s great that Drake is coming back after pulling-out last minute in 2014, while Avicii will bring the dance vibe and hopefully drop some of the tracks he has recorded with Madonna,” said a source.
Wireless Festival will take place at Finsbury Park here for the second year, but unlike 2014 it will not be jointly held at Perry Park in Birmingham following underwhelming ticket sales and disappointing revenues.
“Wireless is going back to being just a London festival. The organisers tried to replicate the success of the Reading and Leeds Festivals but the Birmingham site proved to be a flop, despite having the same acts as the capital city,” the insider added.
Wireless Festival, which was headlined by Kanye West and Bruno Mars last year, will be held between July 3 and July 5.
