Wireless Festival 2016 takes place on the 8, 9, 10 July in Finsbury Park, London. The capital’s pop and urban weekender, showcases the very best in homegrown and international talent, so we’ve picked out 5 of our favourites which you really shouldn’t miss…

 

The 1975

Matt Healy - The 1975

Not heard of these boys? Unless you’ve been living in a tree house for the last few months, you’ll be well aware of the Manchester four-piece. Making waves is a mahoosive understatement – these boys have literally blown things out of the water! With the release of their second album early this year, the synth-poppers will finish 2016 with a headline show at London’s 20,000-capacity O2 Arena! Their live set is a feast for both the eyes and the ears, so catch them on Friday evening with everyone else

R&B star Miguel hit the scene in 2010 with his infectious first album ‘All I Want Is You.’ Fast forward through a handful of Billboard No. 1s, nine Grammy nominations (plus a win) and two more hit albums, and it’s hard to imagine the R&B scene without this super-smooth artist with a super-smooth voice.

 

Boy Better Know

The grime collective of BBK – including the likes of Skepta, Jme, Solo 45, Frisco, DJ Maximum, Jammer, and Shorty – have become London icons since they hit the scene over a decade ago. Each member carries talent bone-deep, reflected in both their lyrics and beats – together as a crew, they become unstoppable. They’ll be headlining Wireless on Sunday night, so better book Monday off work!

 

Anderson .Paak

After toiling in LA for years, Anderson .Paak just released one of the year’s best albums so far, ‘Malibu’, earning himself a spot on Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label. As he steamrolls the hip-hop scene, his smooth and infectious vibes continue to lift him above the rest and allow him to stand out as a growing music maestro. Do yourself a favour and catch Anderson .Paak’s set on Sunday

 

Kehlani

One of the brightest stars on the scene, don’t miss her Sunday session.
