Hyde Park's three day summer fest binges out on dance and pop this year, headed up by the Barbadian hit-machine that is Ms Rihanna Fenty, who'll no doubt bring Wireless to an explosive, er, climax with her saucy and spectacular R&B/pop hits. Award-winning hip hop/R&B star Drake, who's worked with Kanye West, Jay-Z and Eminem, makes a rare London appearance off the back of this year's 'Take Care' album, while producer Deadmau5 brings his huge lighting rigs and lit-up mouse 'ears' to the opening day. Despite the big name acts and historic location, don't expect too much in the way of atmosphere or glamour though, as most of the festival's site is given over to advertising or dreaded 'brand experiences'.
