Will Drake be at Wireless Festival this weekend?


DRAKE WILL reportedly celebrate the success of his new album, Scorpion, with a surprise performance at the Wireless Festival this weekend (July 6-8)

The rapper released the double album on June 28, which broke Spotify’s record for most global streams for an album in one day and in addition, smashed the streaming records on Apple Music and Amazon Music Unlimited.

A source told The Sun:”Giggs and DJ Khaled have asked him to come out onstage with them on Sunday as they bring the festival to a close."

"Drake is already in London for a party for his brand OVO on Saturday so it was the perfect timing to squeeze in a performance. With 50,000 music fans attending it’s the perfect place to showcase his album and thank fans for their support."

On Tuesday (Jul 3), Wireless announced that Krept & Konan and Chip are set to join the lineup among others, however “due to unforeseen circumstances, J Hus and Fredo will no longer be performing”.

The festival organisers have also announced they will halt the show on Friday (Jul 6) and observe a one minute silence to tribute those who lost their lives to street violence this year.

Festival boss Melvin Benn said: "The violence that is threatening our city needs to be spoken about, and it’s imperative that these killings stop.

"If any other activity had killed more than 70 young people in London this year, the reasons would be at the top of the Government’s agenda."
