Example is set to entertain the crowds at the Wireless Festival.

The British rapper - whose real name is Elliot Gleave - will take to the stage for the fourth time at London's Hyde Park on Saturday July 7, with headlining act Drake, as well as Professor Green and Wiz Khalifa.

"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," he said.

"Over the years I've moved up from stage to stage and played bigger slots but I can honestly say every one of them was equally epic. Whether it was opening the main stage or closing one of the smaller tents the crowd was always packed and buzzing with energy. The backdrop of Hyde Park adds a certain air of heritage and great tradition to the whole event. I can't wait."

Professor Green added: "I'm really excited to be performing at Wireless again. Wireless 2010 was a 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!"

Rihanna will make her only UK appearance as she closes the three-day festival on Sunday July 8.

Jessie J, Calvin Harris, Labrinth, J Cole, Rizzle Kicks, Kaskade and Flux Pavilion are also scheduled to perform on the last day.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
