Wireless Once Again Sets the Tone for City Festivals

The Wireless music festival has developed a strong reputation for providing great line-ups in recent years and the 2011 Wireless festival in Hyde Park looks set to do the same. It has been well known that reformed Pulp are in line to play on the Sunday evening of the event but some big announcements have been made for the Friday and Saturday of the festival.

Love them or loathe them, there is no getting away from the fact that the Black Eyed Peas are one of the biggest bands in the world. An appearance at the Superbowl reinforced this but the number of singles and albums they have shifted in recent years indicates that there is a lot of love for this act. They are bound to get the party started on the Friday night as they headline a line-up that brings together pop, R&B and a touch of urban music.

Tinie Tempah

Plan B, Tinie Tempah and Example are all included on the Friday line-up which should see these tickets go very quickly. There is a good sized capacity for the Wireless music festival but there is also going to be a lot of demand for these tickets. If you like chart based R&B and electro-funkiness, Hyde Park is likely to be delivering your sort of thing on the Friday.

Saturday sees Wireless festival slip on its dancing shoes and headline act The Chemical Brothers are more than capable of having everyone dancing long into the night. At their own shoes, the dup can sometimes play some of their obscure album tracks and create a set which ebbs and flows but at a festival, they bring out the big guns.

The Brothers Gonna Work It Out

The Saturday night of last year’s Wireless festival featured LCD Soundsystem who know how to put on a show but if anything, The Chemical Brothers should be capable of topping that event. It can be difficult for some dance acts to break through into the mainstream at times but Ed and Tom showed how it was done and they remain one of the most popular dance duos for a festival crowd.

If that isn’t enough dance action, the fact that Saturday also features artists like Aphex Twin, Battles and The Whip should be more than enough to get a party started on what is sure to be another busy day in Hyde Park.

Pulp remain different class

The excitement around the return of Pulp has meant that the Sunday at Wireless has been anticipated for quite a while and these tickets have been on sale since November. The reformed Sheffield band, led by Jarvis Cocker, is undoubtedly a major draw of the weekend and their set should see one of the biggest crowds of the 3 day event. The memories of the Britpop now may be a distant memory for some but an act like Pulp managed to stand out above many of the bands from that era. Their return is hotly anticipated…much like this year’s Wireless festival!
