After typically being held in London parks such as Hyde Park and Finsbury Park, last year the hip-hop and R&B festival moved south of the River Thames to Crystal Palace Park for the first time.
The event’s 2022 edition will kick off once again in Crystal Palace Park between July 1-3, but will move back to Finsbury Park for its second weekend of performances, which takes place between July 8-10. Wireless 2022 will also hold events in Birmingham at the Outdoor At The NEC space.
The first weekend will be headlined by J. Cole, A$AP Rocky, and Tyler, The Creator, while the second London stint will be topped by Nicki Minaj, SZA, and Cardi B. Over in Birmingham, J. Cole and Cardi B will be joined by Dave as the event’s headliners.
Elsewhere on the bill, the likes of Kali Uchis, Playboi Carti, Summer Walker, The Kid Laroi, Lil Baby, and more will also perform. You can see who will perform at which site on the official Wireless Festival website.
Tickets for Wireless 2022 are on sale now and available to purchase here.
Fans who can’t make it to the festival sites will be able to tune into live coverage from the events on BBC Radio 1Xtra, which will partner with Wireless for the first time this year. DJs from the station will host stages and play special DJ sets across the festival’s events, while they will also share exclusive interviews and performances on their shows.
Minaj’s headline performance comes after the rapper shared two new singles back-to-back earlier this month. The iconic star first made her comeback with “Do We Have A Problem?” before following that track up a week later with the fiery “Bussin’.” Both singles featured a guest verse from Lil Baby.
