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.

Wireless Festival 2015 - Live Review

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.

Traffic Chaos Keeps Nicki Minaj Away From Wireless Festival


Nicki Minaj David Guetta Wireless Festival

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.

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.

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.

Kanye WestWest'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.
