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.

British Pop Star Jessie J Defied Her Doctors By Performing At Wireless Festival In London On Sunday (05jul15) Just Days After Undergoing Surgery.
The Price Tag hitmaker was hospitalised last month (Jun15) and underwent two operations to treat an unknown condition, but she confirmed on Sunday that she would be performing at the event even though she was feeling "very fragile".
After taking to the stage, she told the audience, "I didn't think I was gonna make it today and I got told not to be here, but... I can't miss shows in London."
She also joked about going against her doctor's advice in a post on Twitter.com, writing, "I know my doc is going to call me... 'Hi Jessica how are you... Resting?' 'Yes doc'".

Nicki Minaj Missed Her Support Slot At Britain's Wireless Festival On Sunday (05jul15) Following A Traffic Nightmare En Route To The Site In North London.
The rapper was due to hit the stage before David Guetta's headlining performance at Finsbury Park, but when organisers lost touch with her, they had to alert fans to the fact she had been delayed.
A message which flashed up on screens around the main stage read: "We are told that she was due to be speeding down the M1 (motorway) from Luton Airport as we speak but we have lost contact with her, we are hoping that she will be here soon."
But Minaj, who performed in Denmark on Saturday night (04Jul15), was caught up in traffic congestion caused by a car fire, and she failed to make it in time.

Canadian Rapper Drake Wowed The Crowds During A Hit-filled Set At The Wireless Festival In London On Friday (03july15), A Year After Having To Pull Out Of The Event Due To Illness.
The rapper called London his "second home" as he performed in front of a Union Jack backdrop during his 90-minute set, and surprised the crowds as he brought out London grime MC Skepta for the track Shutdown, prompting cheers from the crowd at Finsbury Park in north London.
Drake and Skepta then paid tribute to Lukey Maxwell, who was stabbed and killed in June (15) in Northumberland Park in the capital.
Opening and closing with Legend from his 2015 mixtape, Drake told the crowd, "I do a lot of festivals but this is my favourite crowd ever... Whenever I'm away from home you make me feel at home."

Kanye West started his pair of Wireless performances on the wrong foot.
Kanye West drew the ire of fans at his Wireless Festival gig this weekend, when he paused his set for twenty minutes to rant about discrimination in the fashion industry – specifically, discrimination against him.
Kanye West had Big Things To Say, but fans had only paid to hear him rap.
"I'm not going to mention any names but… Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Don't discriminate against me cos I'm a black man making music," West said, according to the Mirror.

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.
