Making a return to Wireless Festival, where he last played in 2019, Lil Yachty will be playing songs from his latest album, Let’s Start Here, in a UK exclusive. The album took fans by surprise by departing from the Atlanta rapper’s previous releases and taking a noticeable prog-rock approach.
This year’s Wireless will take place in Finsbury Park, between Friday 7 July and Sunday 9 July. Last year’s had been spread across two weekends in three locations – Crystal Palace Park, Finsbury Park, and Birmingham – with some fans criticising an uneven spread of the more high-profile acts across the different venues. That won’t be an issue this year.
Also joining Lil Yachty is fellow Atlanta duo Homixide Gang, consisting of Homixide Beno! and Homixide Meechie, whilst Yeat will be making his European debut. The Portland rapper drops his much-anticipated Aftërlyfe next month.
Closer to home, South London’s K-Trap has also been announced on the bill, following his release last year of The Last Whip II mixtape.
The latest additions add to a line-up that’s already looking worth the money, with Travis Scott, Playboi Carti, D-Block Europe all having already been announced along with Lil Uzi Vert, Ice Spice, Headie One and British RnB trio FLO will all also play.
