New Look Wireless Festival drew to a close last weekend, with over 70 acts performing across 3 stages, all in celebration of their 10th birthday.
Kicking off proceedings on the Friday was ASAP Rocky, who performed tracks including Goldie and Excuse Me. The performance was uninspiring and lacked engagement with the audience, leaving festival goers in anticipation for headliner Drake.
Drake took to the stage, after cancelling last year's headline appearance due to illness, and was definitely worth the wait being a standout 90 minute performance. The Canadian rapper was appreciative of the Wireless crowd claiming London was his 'second home' before being joined by local MC Skepta for track Shutdown.

There's a lot to look forward for Wireless' 10th anniversary event.
New Look Wireless Festival is returning to Finsbury Park, following last year's success at the North London venue, celebrating its 10th birthday this year. The 2015 line-up is set to be the biggest yet with headliners Drake, Avicii and David Guetta playing to the 40,000 a day capacity festival.
For the first time, Wireless festival goers expect to see karaoke, a tone 'n' tweak area and plenty of choice in the food court. In celebration of their 10th birthday though, here are Wireless' best acts to see across the line up from this weekend.
New acts have been announced for the New Look Wireless Festival taking place in London this July.
Wireless Festival goers will be delighted to hear that new acts have been announced for this year's line-up. London's biggest pop festival is looking better than ever with some explosive first announcements.
The weekend of the 3rd-5th July 2015 will feature some of the UK and beyond's finest artists performing at Finsbury Park in London. Among new additions are A$AP Rocky, Mary J. Blige, Major Lazer, Stromae, Partynextdoor, Netsky, Robin Schulz, Tinashe, Rae Sremmurd, Collie Buddz and Pusha T.
Outkast and Robin Thicke take the Wireless stage as Cara Delevingne looks on.
Outkast have been making their spectacular reunion on the festival circuit this year having appeared at numerous events including Coachella, CounterPoint, Firefly Festival, Big Guava Festival and Roskilde among many others.
The rap duo, who are Big Boi and Andre 3000, released their last album in 2006 entitled 'Idlewild'.

Kanye West headlined at the Wireless Festival at Finsbury Park in London on Friday and Saturday (4th and 5th July) but the audience was less than impressed when he launched into yet another of his egomaniacal rants. They responded by booing his performances on both nights. Let's hope he finally takes the hint.
Does anyone truly want to see Kanye West perform? It certainly doesn't seem like it at the moment. The rapper and husband of reality star Kim Kardashian has been booed at two festivals within the last month.
West's bizarre speeches have not been received well by audiences.
The first time was at the Bonaroo Festival in Tennessee on 13th June where West performed, ranted and was subsequently booed. But he suffered the same fate whilst performing at the Wireless Festival in London on Friday and Saturday night. The rapper was initially slated to headline on Friday but Saturday's headliner, Drake, was forced to pull out at the last minute due to illness.

Drake will not be appearing at this weekend's Wireless festival due to illness. The festival's website announced the cancellation on Thursday (3rd July), only a day before the festival held in London and Birmingham is set to begin.
Drake has cancelled his appearance at the Wireless Festival at the very last minute due to illness. He was set to perform in both festival venues this weekend (4th-6th July) but announced that he is not well enough to appear. The festival's website made the announcement on Thursday (3rd July).
Drake has pulled out of the Wireless Festival due to illness.
The festival's organisers, Live Nation, are attempting to remedy the loss of Drake by extending the sets of confirmed acts. In addition, those attending the Birmingham venue will be presented with £20 of 'Wireless Credit' when they arrive. The vouchers will be redeemable for food, souvenirs and fun fair rides. Live Nation has also offered refunds but they will only be available before the event and not at the festival itself.
Festival fun in London! Highlights include Jabberwocky, Camden Crawl and Wireless...
If you want a unique festival experience this year, London could be the place for you. Featuring a diverse range of events from the independent ethics of Jabberwocky to the mainstream attitude of Wireless, 2014 is not all about the States.
The UK is home to some incredible, highly respected music festivals such as Isle of Wight Festival, Leeds and Reading Festival and, of course, Glastonbury - but just what do we have in store from the nation's capital? London is unquestionably the UK's most vibrant city and, when it comes to music, there's really no denying that. The rest of the world may have SXSW, Coachella, Ultra and Exit (to name but a very small few), but London has a plethora of unique local events with line-ups and atmospheres that really prove their worth - and we're here to share them with you.
Jabberwocky (August 15th-16th)
All Tomorrow's Parties present this brand new festival for 2014, co-hosted by Pitchfork and Primavera Sound and set to take place at The Excel Centre this August. For its inaugural event, Jabberwocky will see headline acts from Neutral Milk Hotel, James Blake, Darkside and Caribou, not to mention support from Kurt Vile & The Violators, Hookworms and Electric Wizard. Like many of the best festivals, it's not all about the music as Jabberwocky will be hosting some film events and, as the name suggests, there'll be plenty of art to enjoy too. Tickets are priced at £38.50 per day.

Jay-Z visited Salisbury Cathedral to see the namesake of his latest album 'Magna Carta Holy Grail'.
Jay-Z made an unscheduled appearance to Salisbury cathedral to see the Magna Carta, the 13th century English rights document, which is the namesake of his album: Magna Carta Holy Grail. He visited the cathedral shortly after the Sunday (14th July) service finished.
Jay-Z at The Great Gatsby premiere, New York.
One wouldn't imagine Jay-Z, a.k.a. Shawn Carter, would be such a tourist and he doesn't seem the type to spend his time wandering around English churches. He's proved everyone wrong though by visiting Salisbury Cathedral in order to see the Magna Carta.
Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake brought rap and R&B to the adoration of thousands over three days at London's Wireless Festival until the unthinkable happened.
It was the glorious festival collaboration that turned sour: Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake collaborated on tracks from Jay-Z's new album Magna Carta Holy Grail in a three day series of surprise performances and "I was there" moments. Sunday evening's performance approached and the 40,000-strong crowd of music fans waited for the joint headline performance that would serve as the cherry on top of a one-in-a-lifetime celebration of hiphop sounds. However, in currently unknown circumstances at 9pm two men were stabbed and had to be rushed to hospital where one is reportedly currently stable, yet one is said to be "in critical condition," according to Scotland Yard via BBC News.
Jay-Z Performed A Festival Set During Which Two Men Were Stabbed.
The attack occurred at approximately 21:00 BST in the midst of the crowd, many of whom were exultant in the presence of their musical heroes yet a select few will have had their evening's experience marred by the nightmarish attack.
Recommended Albums... New York garage-rock new-wavers The Strokes are on album number five and Comedown Machine marks a return to form for Julian Casablancas & co. Whilst they may not be trying to replicate the pared down sound of their now-iconic debut This Is It, they have at least re-captured some of that raw energy. With a sound now owing as much to 80s synth bands such as A-Ha and Human League as it does to their beloved garage rock idols.
As a result, The Strokes, circa 2013 finds the band fully rejuvenated and seemingly enjoying themselves. They may struggle to regain the popularity that they enjoyed when the band first emerged but they have at least done themselves proud with Comedown Machine.
