Wireless have recently posted out a new survey similar to the other Festival Republic festivals asking about acts we'd like to see at the 2021 edition of Wireless...

 

Can't say I am impressed with the list of headliners they gave...

-Dave

-J Hus

-Tyler, The Creator

-Meek Mill 

-Migos

-A$AP Rocky

-J. Cole

-Nicki Minaj

-Future

-Skepta

 

If only they booked Drake or Travis Scott every year... Anyways, what have you guys opted for in the survey and who do you think we will see on next years lineup?

oh god no

Wireless sells out every year no matter what. Why pay for a superstar when Alex from Glastonbury would sell out?

Where’s this idea come from that Travis Scott is some all-conquering behemoth too big to play certain massive festivals?

I think humungous acts like Drake and Travis have probably outgrown festivals like Wireless and can do much better off doing their own shows so the list of acts above is what will more or less be on rotation from now on - still big, but not nearly to the level of those other two, and it'll still sell out so this isn't a problem for Wireless.

Find it awful it asks who you'd like to headline.

 

And then have a list that bad the slide after.

It's the constant same with them.

 

Give Jay Z a headline slot, Kano, Dave get Kendrick.

Get some old legends. How many would love T Pain, Missy Elliot, Busta Rhymes or even 50 Cent? Get a special N Dubz, Roll Deep performance.

They really need to branch out this recycled same line up every year. Course young lot are still going to go and it'll always sell out

With the way Wireless is going I really wouldn't be surprised if we see AJ Tracey and D-Block Europe headline soon, just praying for more American rappers.

Also, I think Chloe X Halle would be a pretty cool get if they managed to book them before, the new album is insane!

I think Wireless will start going down the route of getting “legendary” hip hop stars to headline the festival to buck the cycle of the same few acts. Missy Elliott, Public Enemy, TLC etc.

I think they'll go down the complete opposite route and just have your usual ASAP Rocky, Nicki Minaj, J Cole, Skepta, Dave etc over and over with a dance act thrown in there every once in a while like it's been doing for the past few years. It's what seems to sell best without the need to really break the bank on acts like Drake and Kendrick or Travis* anymore. Think introducing a 'legend' day or whatever would just cause a stall in ticket sales.

 

* Maybe they'll still get some of these bigger acts every now and then, but think it'll be the exception rather than the rule

Wireless can sell very well when they put a U.K. artist up at the top. They don’t need to run after American acts who ask for millions and millions.

They do well with a balance. I think all UK headliners would be less well-received than all US/CA headliners. It will probably continue to be one UK two US/CA.

I think 2021 will probably be same headliners as 2020 or with Future in for Meek.

I forgot to post this the other evening, but got this email sent to me saying Skepta will be performing at Wireless next year... Unsure if this is true or just a glitch, but thought I'd post it here regardless

Sorry for the double post, but thought I would do another mock-up for next year, Dave could maybe be swapped for Skepta if the screenshot I posted turns out to be true (sigh)... Anyways, I think this is a little more realistic.... Thoughts?

Looks fair. DaBaby won’t be that low though, I think he’s second biggest on that day.

I guess the Skepta thing was just them announcing the new dates with this year’s headliners but there doesn’t seem a lot to stop him headlining again. Meek is at Rolling Loud around the time of this too so I think a repeat of all could well happen.

too big imo, more likely for BST

Don’t agree there. They’ve had some huge headliners at Wireless down the years and he’s only headlined that in this country, whereas like Post and Kendrick had already headlined  Reading and sold out arena tours before BST.

Would you not agree that Wireless’ headliners have kind of tapered off in their huge-ness in recent years, and that Travis has already surpassed their bookings as he’s already a mega star? Maybe I’m overestimating his size/underestimating some of their more recent bookings, but to me he seems far bigger than anything they’ve had in like five years (since the last time Drake was booked).

He headlined it last year and I don’t think he’s done anything substantial since, nor am I convinced that he’d be obscenely big for this next summer. I think The Weeknd in 2017 was bigger.

Drake's headline last year can't really be counted, that was special circumstances. His 25 minute set was probably bigger than any of the recent headliners though honestly.

edit: if live nation can book him, they would probably try to get him for reading instead of wireless, tour dependent obviously

Travis Scott headlined last year, I mean.

Yeah I'm finding it really strange people are saying Travis Scott is too big to headline Wireless.
