Wireless Festival kicks off in London and Birmingham this weekend with Kanye West, Drake and Bruno Mars lined up to top this year’s bill.
Update: Drake cancels due to illness
Among the eclectic acts heading to Finsbury Park and Perry Park are "Rather Be" singer Jess Glynne, renowned party-starters Basement Jaxx and Jamaican rapper Sean Paul.
OutKast’s reunion has been the talk of the summer with "Hey Ya" set to spark the biggest sing-along of the festival, while Pharrell Williams will be showcasing his song-writing prowess on the main stage.
Dance collective Rudimental will be hoping that lightning steers well clear of their set after a storm cut their Glastonbury slot short last Friday night.
Those not put off by Robin Thicke's nausea-inducing efforts to win back his estranged wife can catch the "Blurred Lines" singer before Ellie Goulding brings out her drum, while Naughty Boy is sure to draw a crowd after the huge success of "La La La".
