After a slightly shaky 2013 in the Olympic Park, Wireless has moved again. This year it's Finsbury Park that will play host to an eyepopping line-up of hip hop and R&B royalty. Kanye! Drake! Pharrell! Outkast! Not to mention young stars from both sides of the Atlantic such as Ella Eyre and Angel Haze, Earl Sweatshirt and Clean Bandit – and party-starting troupers Basement Jaxx and Salt N Pepa. It's hard to doubt that this will be one of the UK festival season's biggest bills, or that it'll sell out practically straight away.

Kanye West should put on a brilliantly OTT show as the Wireless Friday headliner: his Yeezus tour has featured masks, mountains and an actor dressed as Jesus. There's plenty more good stuff on the bill too: smooth jams from Pharrell, big dance action by Basement Jaxx, ballsy hip hop by Iggy Azalea and Angel Haze and impassioned R&B/pop by young British hope Ella Eyre.

The most sensitive man in the world, Canadian R&B/hip hop superstar Drake, headlines Saturday at Wireless. A banging support bill includes Hackney dance heroes Rudimental, a bevy of hotly tipped young MCs from both coasts of the USA – Wiz Khalifa, Azealia Banks, Chance The Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt and A$AP Ferg – and glitchy producer Pretty Lights.

Miniature pop dude Bruno Mars does his slick thing to close Wireless on Sunday night – but not until we've heard from two mighty kings of R&B: Outkast return for a 'special guest' set, which'll be absolutely rammed. Also booked for the festival's final day are wispy British pop sensation Ellie Goulding, young and talented chart-botherers John Newman and Clean Bandit, iffy girl group Neon Jungle and badass NY rap veterans Salt N Pepa.
