Drake to headline Wireless Festival

Drake is set to headline this year's Wireless Festival - 12 months after he was forced to pull out of the event through illness.

The Canadian rapper joins big names including Labrinth, Jessie J and Nicki Minaj at the three-day event in Finsbury Park, north London, in July.

He pulled out last year with Kanye West replacing him by performing two separate sets.

Promoter Steve Homer from Live Nation said the show, officially known as New Look Wireless, had "an incredible line-up".

He said: " We can't wait to bring Drake back to the main stage, along with some of the best artists that span the world of hip-hop, dance, R&B and UK garage. This is our 10th birthday and we're really going to make it one to remember."

Acts that have previously played the festival include Jay-Z and Rihanna.

Tickets go on sale next month.
