A star-studded line-up is home to three days of hip-hop, trap, R&B and Afrobeats headliners including; Nicki Minaj, Futurem 21 Savage, J Hus and Doja Cat.

Kicking off the weekend is Nicki Minaj, although she was forced to pull out of Bucharest’s Saga Festival, the rapper is set to play the Finsbury Park stage. The hip-hop legend's most recent release Pink Friday 2 maintained her popularity with her fans known as ‘barbz’. Minaj last played Wireless two years ago and flexed her longevity with a plethora of popular songs from the last decade. New York born hitmaker Ice Spice also returns to the main stage alongside dancehall legend Sean Paul.

Future joins Minaj on the first day of the festival. The rapper has had an electric 2024 releasing two collaboration albums with producer Metro Boomin. Like Minaj, Future has an enormous back catalogue of music to choose from making him a must watch for hip-hop fanatics. Asake is an artist to look out for on Friday. The Nigerian rapper sold out the O2 last year and has enjoyed another significant year of streaming and sales.
