The Wireless Festival is a music festival in England that takes place every year in London, and took place at Harewood House, Leeds in 2006 and 2007. It is owned and managed by Live Nation.

From its inception in 2005 until 2008, the festival was sponsored by telecommunications company O2, and was called the O2 Wireless Festival.

Headliner

Joseph Junior Adenuga (born 19 September 1982), better known by his stage name Skepta, is a British grime artist, rapper, songwriter, record producer and music video director.[1] Adenuga released his debut studio album Greatest Hits in late-2007 and his second, Microphone Champion in 2009, both independently, while his third studio album Doin' It Again was released in 2011 by AATW. His fourth studio album, Konnichiwa, was released on 6 May 2016 to critical acclaim, winning that year's Mercury Prize. Skepta's brother, Jme, is also a grime MC.

Adenuga has stated ‘DIY’ music is the future and told Time Out magazine, "I’m not a rapper. I’m an activist."[2] His influence on contemporary British popular culture as a key figure in the grime scene saw him appear on Debrett's 2017 list of the most influential people in the UK.[2]

Headliner

Chancelor Johnathan Bennett (born April 16, 1993), known professionally as Chance the Rapper, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and philanthropist[3] from the West Chatham neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois.[4][5] In 2013, he began to gain recognition following the release of his second mixtape, Acid Rap.[6] Apart from his solo career, he is also a member of the Chicago collective Save Money (along with frequent collaborator Vic Mensa), and has worked as the lead vocalist for the band The Social Experiment. They released the widely lauded album Surf in May 2015.

In May 2016, Bennett released his third mixtape Coloring Book to further critical acclaim. It earned him three Grammy awards, including for Best Rap Album. Coloring Book was the first streaming-only album to ever receive and win a Grammy nomination.[7]
