Cardi B, Dave, Nicki Minaj and Tyler, The Creator are among the headliners announced for this year’s Wireless festival. This year will see the festival expand across three sites – Crystal Palace Park and Finsbury Park in London, and Birmingham’s Outdoor At The NEC – over two consecutive weekends (1-3 July and 8-10 July). It’s the first time that Birmingham has hosted the festival since 2014.
