In this week's Music Minute, IBTimes UK rounds up all the latest news from London's Wireless Festival, which took place from 8-10 July.
Calvin Harris kicks off festival in style
Finsbury Park played host to the music event for a second year and opened its doors with performances from The 1975, Miguel, Bryson Tiller and Dua Lipa, to name just a few.
EDM god Calvin Harris closed the show with an electrifying set, but not before a surprise introduction from The Fresh Prince himself, Will Smith. Harris was also joined on-stage by Big Sean and Dizzee Rascal, making for a great start to the Wireless weekend.
Black Lives Matter support
As the music flowed, performers made sure to keep the racial tension in America at the forefront of everyone's minds. Vic Mensa and Big Sean were among those to tribute the recent victims of police shootings while r&b singer Miguel shed some tears on the main stage, telling his audience that they "do not have to live in fear". Festival-goers were also seen brandishing Black Lives Matter placards in support of the movement.
Boy Better Know end weekend with star-studded set
Elsewhere, Craig David, Future and J Cole gave some thrilling performances on Saturday, while Sunday was all about the grime with London collective Boy Better Know closing the festival. Skepta, JME, Frisco and cohorts stormed the stage with a selection of their biggest hits, a Pharrell Williams cameo and what looked like 100 of their friends joining them at the end. What a fantastic night for grime.
Backstage Nando's for stars
If you wondered where all the celebrities were hanging out over the weekend, you would have found them at Nando's. Yes, the fast food restaurant set-up shop backstage so all those VIPs like Calvin Harris and Fergie could get their chicken fix. Some fun facts for you – Nandos served 2,400 wings, 1,600 wraps and 500kgs of chips.
