Wireless Festival 2017 guide

This standout London music festival lays on huge pop and hip hop names in Finsbury Park

First things first: when is Wireless Festival 2017?

It takes place from Friday July 7–Sunday July 9 in Finsbury Park. 

Who’s on the Wireless Festival line-up?

The Weeknd, Skepta, Nas and Chance The Rapper headline. And it's worth getting there early because the bill is stacked with homegrown talent: grime godfather Wiley, drill group Section Boyz, grime darling Dave and brilliant Clapton rapper Stefflon Don are all down to play across the weekend.

What’s the vibe?

Finsbury Park plays host to a number of festivals over the summer months, but only Wireless promises the biggest international chart-smashing acts. In recent years it’s ramped up its roster of rap, hip hop, and R&B acts, and upgraded the atmosphere with fairground rides and street food, becoming a favourite post-exam blowout for city-dwelling students. It’s not a sprawling countryside fest, but it’s as close as you’ll get in Zone 2.

Anything else I should know?

Unsurprisingly Finsbury Park don’t fancy hosting thousands of campers, so Wireless is a strictly no-overnight affair. Duck out early if you want to beat the crush on the tube.
