Modestep, Zed’s Dead, Gemini, Jaguar Skills and Childish Gambino join a sizzling line up on Friday 6 July, headlined by Grammy-nominated deadmau5. London foursome Modestep are making serious waves on the UK music scene, their debut single ‘Feel Good’ reached number 5 on the independent releases chart. British DJ’s Gemini and Jaguar Skills, American rapper, producer and DJ Childish Gambino, US DJ AraabMuzik and German DJ Zedd, who recently supported headliner Deadmau5 on his US tour, are also set to join Friday’s sensational bill.
The Weeknd, Labrinth, Clement Marfo and the Frontline and Dot Rotten are now confirmed to join headliner Drake on Saturday 7 July, a day that already has the likes of Nicki Minaj, Example and Wiz Khalifa set to perform. Since hitting the scene in March last year with the release of his mixtape debut ‘House of Balloons’, Canadian producer and recording artist The Weeknd has been causing a stir, leading the charge in an idiosyncratic new cut of R&B. Labrinth, whose eagerly anticipated debut album is out in April, also joins the bill. Hotly tipped South London MC’s Clement Marfo and The Frontline and Dot Rotten have also been added to Saturday’s scorching line-up along with Philadelphia’s Chiddy Bang.
A plethora of hot new acts will also join Sunday’s sold out sensational bill, headlined by pop goddess Rihanna and already featuring the likes of Jessie J, Calvin Harris, J Cole and Rizzle Kicks. British singer-songwriter Delilah is one of the hottest new names in UK Music. Her first EP ‘GO’ was released in September last year, spawning the track of the same name, which was described by Chaka Khan as ‘genius’. Trinidad-born, Brooklyn-based Theophilus London is one of the new breeds of rapper, a series of hyped up mixtapes followed by a well-received EP have earned him widespread buzz and a spot on the Barclaycard Wireless Festival bill. Rising star Angel whose recently released EP features Wretch 32 is also confirmed to hit the Barclaycard Wireless Festival stage on Sunday 8 July.
