Skepta, Future and Migos have been unveiled as the headliners of this year’s Wireless.

The three-day festival has moved away from its usual home of Finsbury Park and will take place within Crystal Palace Park for 2021, shifting later in the year as well, from September 10-12.

US titan Future will top the bill on Friday, UK legend Skepta is the main event on Saturday, while Sunday’s programme will be led by rap trio Migos.

Elsewhere, there will be performances from AJ Tracey, Megan Thee Stallion, Meek Mill, D Block Europe, Lil Baby, Young Thug, Headie One and more.

A new batch of tickets will go on sale from midday on Thursday April 29, and will be available to buy here.

Government restrictions on social contact are set to be lifted by June 21 at the earliest, which should herald a return for larger events such as festivals.

However, there have already been a significant number of high-profile cancellations, such as Glastonbury and Download festival. Boomtown is one of the numerous music events to postpone its 2021 edition, citing lack of a government-backed insurance scheme as a key factor in the decision.

The latest names announced for Wireless — with all-male headliners, and only one woman on the rest of the line-up — follows a trend for male-dominated UK festivals this summer. As it stands, the headline acts at some of the country’s biggest festivals — Reading, Leeds, TRNSMT and Isle of Wight — are all men.
