20 Tracks To Get You Hyped For Wireless Festival 2022 🚀

Having taken the time to regroup, refresh, and rejuvenate, Wireless is back for by far and away its biggest year yet. We probably all expected Wireless to come back in one form or another, maybe in a more cautious way given everything that’s happened. It’s pretty unlikely, though, that anyone expected them to come back with three festivals in three locations and with arguably their biggest headliners yet.

Still, they did it and it’s already set to be one for the history books. This weekend, the trio of festivals kicks off in Crystal Palace with A$AP Rocky (who’ll be joined by Chris Brown as a special guest), J. Cole, and Tyler, The Creator, headlining Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, respectively. Then, the following weekend (July 8-10), Cardi B, SZA, and Nicki Minaj will headline at Finsbury Park, while on the same weekend but in Birmingham, Dave (with Wizkid as special guest), Cardi B (with Chris Brown as special guest), and J Cole will headline their respective days in 0121.

Also on the line-ups, playing various days will be homegrown stars Little Simz, Potter Payper, Central Cee, Mahalia, ArrDee, D-Block Europe, Knucks, ENNY, BackRoad Gee, Ghetts, Nines, and more. Elsewhere, there’ll be big US names like Jack Harlow, Summer Walker, Roddy Richh, Jhené Aiko, Don Toliver, Lil Uzi Vert, Ski Mask The Slump God, Fivio Foreign, Rico Nasty, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Playboy Carti, Ari Lennox, Flo Milli, Baby Keem, 6LACK, City Girls, Lil Baby, Lil Dark, and plenty more besides.

To get us all fired up for the next two weekends, we’ve put together this playlist of 20 UK bangers to soundtrack your pre-party warm-up.
