The Wireless Festival 2016 line-up has just gotten bigger with Big Sean, Fergie and Wizkid added to the bill. Returning to London's Finsbury Park for a second year from 8-10 July 2016, the annual music event will also see previously announced acts including headliners Calvin Harris and Boy Better Know entertain the masses.
It will be a triumphant return to the Wireless stage for US singer Fergie, who last performed at the festival in 2011 alongside her Black Eyed Peas bandmates will.i.am, Taboo and apl.de.ap. The songstress is expected to promote music from her second solo album, which is due for release this summer and will feature her hit single LA Love (La La).
Tickets for Wireless festival are still on sale and available from major outlets including Ticketmaster. Nigerian musician Wizkid will bring his Afrobeats sound to the stage on Friday 8 July performing his array of popular songs including Ojuelegba and Show You The Money as well as his chart-topping collaboration with Drake on One Dance.
US rapper Big Sean will also head over to the London event on Sunday 10 July performing tracks from his most recent album Dark Sky Paradise while fans will also be hoping to hear songs from his acclaimed joint mixtape with r'n'b singer Jhene Aiko, Twenty88. Other acts already confirmed to perform include J Cole, Chase & Status, The 1975, Future, Craig David's TS5, Jess Glynne and Section Boyz.
Following the dramatic events at the 2015 festival, which saw gatecrashers storm the event, Wireless have promised to have tighter security measures in place for July 2016. Wireless director and Festival Republic CEO Melvin Benn told IBTimes UK: "It's all really about structure of security. I'm certainly anticipating around 20-25% additional security personnel. Interestingly there were very little security personnel attached to the exterior of the event last year and that will be a big improvement.
"The security personnel will be zoned into areas and they'll have areas to control. They'll have better training, better managers and proper structure above them. Last year, in my view, there was inadequate structure. I have two former chief superintendents to run the security operation."
