Drake confirmed as a headline act at the Wireless Festival

Drake has been confirmed as the headline act on the Saturday at the Barclaycard Wireless Festival this year.

The rapper, who collaborated with Rihanna on the single What’s My Name, is set to perform on 7th July at London’s Hyde Park.

Joining Drake on Saturday will be Professor Green, Example and Wiz Khalifa.

MTV reports that Professor Green was looking forward to his performance.  “I’m really excited to be performing at Wireless again. Wireless 2010 was real highlight of that year. The tent was a roadblock and it was lively.”

“I’m confident that this year it will be bigger and better and I can’t wait to get back on that stage in Hyde Park. Roll on the summer,” the I Need You Tonight singer added.

Example also had something to say on the festival. “This will be my fourth year in a row at Wireless. We must be doing something right! I feel like part of the furniture now.”

The Changed the Way You Kiss Me singer added that although he has moved up from stage to stage over the years, the crowd has always been “packed and buzzing with energy.”

We Found Love singer Rihanna is confirmed as Sunday’s headliner and will be joined by Jessie J, Calvin Harris, J.Cole, Labrinth, Rizzle Kicks, Kaskade and Flux Pavilion at the festival.

Friday’s headline act is yet to be confirmed.
