Wireless Festival – Saturday 5th July 2014

87

From Friday 4th July to Sunday 6th July 2014, in the lovely London hot-spot of Finsbury Park, Wireless Festival landed to provide a weekend of awesome to all ticket bearers.

With some of the latest artists, great RnB and hiphop acts lined up and tickets sold out for Friday and Saturday this was set to be another fantastic year!

From mid-morning people were crowding the Finsbury Park area, the delicious smell of subway from people sensibly lining their stomachs. Others were picnicking too or already drinking in the opening to the park before the entrance to the festival. The atmosphere already at this point showed excitement and anticipation – the lineup had a lot to live up to!

Saturday was set to be headlined by Drake, but with the devastating news on Thursday earlier that week that he was too ill to fly or perform Kanye West was taking his place in pole position on main stage for the end of the evening. A few seemed to only find out from the notification boards on the way in and the devastation in their voices was obvious – although a little funny to listen to, you should always check e-mails and keep up to date on festival news!

saturday2Entering the festival on Saturday was pretty quick, the queues weren’t bad at all at about 1pm and you then headed through bag check (you can’t take in big water bottles or large umbrellas) to the festival area. Once you were in it was quite easy to figure out the lay out, and everything was a reasonable distance from one another, which was better than previous years at the Olympic Park and Hyde Park.

The bar s were pretty well organised with two bouncers on the entrance to the queue (checking ID) and plenty of bar staff. Drinks weren’t too badly priced either for a London festival with Somersby and beer coming in at £5 a pint, wine at £6 which came in a small plastic bottle and spirits and mixers £6-£7. Drinks were being prepared by a separate team you could see behind the bar so service was quick too, perfect for when you’re in a rush to get to the stage area.

First up on Saturday’s main stage was B.o.B. They were fantastic! So much fun and they really got the crowd going to start the day. All stages had breaks so you could pop off to another stage, the toilet, bar or food stands.

The portaloo set-up was pretty decent too. There were three noticeable sets of portaloos, each with two big sections, so queuing wasn’t too bad. Males could use the urinals which was a lot quicker, so if you’re male do expect to be waiting a short while for the females in your group. They seemed to be checked pretty regularly too, which is nice to see at festivals!

The Main stage then hosted Schoolboy Q, Azealia Banks and Labrinth. All put on great shows – ‘Beneath your Beautiful’ and ‘Earthquake obviously being huge hits with the crowd.

Wiz Khalifa came on next with a great set. ‘Young, Wild and Free’, appeared to be the crowd’s favourite of Wiz’s songs, which was performed towards the end. Everyone was having so much fun. Wiz was followed by Rudimental, who as always were fantastic, and even joined by John Newman at one point.

There was lots going on all over the festival during the whole day, with many more acts including Chance the Rapper, Knife Party, Jacob Banks and YG on the Pepsi Max and BoomBox stages.

saturday3The food smelt mouth-watering, with so many different cuisines and a stall catering for the vegans amongst us too! However you can take food in to the Wireless festival so if you’re trying to save a few pennies and not be drawn in, stay away as not to be tempted by the smell and delicious sights!

The day was finally headlined by Kanye West who graced everyone with his presence not too long after he was due on stage, fashionably late shall we call it? The stage design was interesting, with a red light cuboid (that’s the best it can described as) rising from the stage, in front of which Kanye performed wearing a metal, chain looking mask. It was all very intriguing. His set was outstanding, although he did decide to give an interlude speech about paparazzi and his family, which didn’t go down very well with the whole crowd. But overall it was an amazing performance, thoroughly enjoyed!

Once Kanye West had finished his set it was then the shuffle to the exit. With everyone leaving at the same time there will always be this tradition, but it wasn’t too bad at all.

Saturday at Wireless was amazing. Some outstanding acts, great tunes, fantastic atmosphere, no trouble or problems and so much fun!

If you missed this year’s Wireless Festival experience, sign up to hear first for next year’s ticket release. It is definitely the festival of the summer in London to attend!
