As long as Travis is there people will be happy, but tbf to ASAP his set was very busy at Parklife this year. 

I'd imagine we will get a bit of British grime and rap, but the American scene is defo quite popular at the moment. Would love to see Slowthai there. 

Could 'Gucci Gang' do it? But they aren't British - can't think of any names from the top of my head.

I think ASAP will do Lovebox now tbh and will be more of a booking like Childish Gambino for them.  I agree that Cardi B will return but it does seem like she'll headline, and maybe even have Off

glad! single days are gone 

Maybe Drake will be billed but pull out way before and DJ Khaled will fill in for 20 minutes? ???

ASAP Rocky was a second stage headliner at Parklife this year. Doesn’t seem like a reasonable headliner at all.

Anyway, if it’s Cardi and Travis for the other two then they’ll surely have a British act for the other one. I would think a lot of people at Wireless will be more into the British scene than anything and would be disappointed with three American names.

Who could it feasibly be from the British scene though? Stormzy, Skepta and Giggs all played recently and they're the only guys I can think of who are big enough. Maybe Dizzee Rascal but that would be a bit underwhelming imo.

Yeah besides those three I genuinely don't know what other British act could do it. JME could probably sub or 3rd with a new album but that's max. Dizzee is probably the only other option but would be a weak booking for headliner.

my absolute dream would be Kano with some classic anniversary set, only UK act that hasn't headlined Wireless who deserves it. 

 

but Giggs with a new album next month, would he now warrant a headline slot after last year?

Do we reckon the announcement could be tomorrow with the website change today?

could have an announcement tomorrow with the line up dropping Friday

 

but they normally give a day in advance for Capital to push the promo.

 

I have a feeling they're setting it for next Friday. payday for a lot of people

Yeah Giggs definitely seems plausible, especially with new material out. I’m sure Giggs, Travis and Cardi would sell well.

easily!! 

if last year could then that will. as I said before Kano really is my preferred choice now as he's showing he's in the studio

 

next week will be exciting

Wiley hasn’t performed with BBK for years has he?

Honestly not a clue, I'd always assumed he had though as he never officially left. 

If he hasn't performed with them in year then yeah BBK is definitely a shout.

I really wouldn’t be surprised if Hus was lined up to headline this and they’ve had to reorganise or wait to see if he still can.

Doubt it, he had to pull out last year because he was arrested and they surely wouldn't book him to headline with a sentencing still to come. Now he's been given 8 months I think? Wireless wouldn't have took the risk in booking him.

Not even sure what warrants a J Hus headline either.

Yeah that too, not big enough at all. Got a new album dropping when he's out apparently so maybe next year lmao

Exactly... He's probably the last headliner the local area would be happy for, imagine the outrage once they find anything about him ffs hahaha

Lined up was the key phrase, not necessarily booked.

He’s probably the biggest British act who hasn’t done it before (Stormzy/Skepta/BBK), especially in terms of crossover. On the back of a new record, he will be pushed everywhere, especially at Wireless.

I'd say Ghetts, Kano are the two biggest UK grime artists who haven't headlined the festival who people would much prefer to see...

What do you reckon the chances of ASAP would be? I reckon he'd be an appealing headliner to many

Rocky. Read back a bit.

you're telling me london crowd would prefer hus to the two biggest lyrical legends?

 

dear me ??‍♂️??‍♂️

Give me Ghetts any day over Giggs or whoever but he was about sixth down the 1Xtra stage at Reading. Kano would be substantially bigger but still not a headliner.

I'd probably smack everyone if Ghetts was on the main stage. would probably drop my mum at home for hype sakes
