More Bands Added To O2 Wirelessby Contributor | 19 April 2007
The line-up for the O2 Wireless festival in London has expanded even further with the addition of number of new bands.
Klaxons, the Bees, the Sounds, Ghosts and a host of other new acts have been allocated support slots at the London and Leeds events.
The Hyde Park O2 will run from June 14th to June 17th and the Leeds event from June 15th to June 17th.
Ghosts and the Bees join the White Stripes on the first day of the London festival, with chief support from Queens of the Stone Age, while Klaxons will now support LCD Soundsystem and Daft Punk.
Mark Ronson has been added to the Faithless headline slot which takes place in London on June 15th and Leeds on June 17th, although this bill is still the lightest in terms of acts, with only six bands so far confirmed.
On June 17th Kaiser Chiefs will be headlining Hyde Park, with support from the Editors, the Rakes, the Cribs and Mumm-Ra.
In Leeds, the Kaiser Chiefs' homecoming gig will so far only feature the headliners and three support bands.
The O2 Wireless festival has hosted a number of memorable performances in Hyde Park, including the Flaming Lips, Raconteurs and Massive Attack.
