Be sure to head down to London Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th of July if you feel like catching three days of eclectic live music amid those green green grasses of Hyde Park. Yes, Wireless Festival (which I should add is sponsored by Barclaycard) is back for it’s sixth year and is serving fans with yet another intriguing line up – to say the least.

If Hop Farm, End of the Road or Green Man is your kinda festival, please, stop reading now. As, dear readers, Wireless is undoubtedly one of the most commercial events of the summer and certainly not for those who prefer the bearded end of sounds. After all, headlining the event across the sunny weekend include Pink (or P!nk, as she prefers to be called), LCD Soundsystem and Beyonce’s hubby, Jay-Z.

Acts featuring alongside Pink on the Friday include The Tings Tings (pictured right), Plan B, Gossip, Daisy Dares You, The Temper Trap, Hockey, Alphabeat, and Bowling for Soup (YES I did just say Bowling for Soup!).

Joining LCD Soundsystem on Saturday include Snoop Dog, 2manydjs, DJ Shadow, Missy Elliot, and erm, The Big Pink and Phenomenal Hand Clap (is it me or do those final two just not fit in with the rest of the bill?).

The final day, as headlined by Jay to the Zee, sees Lily Allen, Friendly Fires, Slash, Chase & Status, Chipmunk, Mr Hudson, dan le sac VS Scroobius Pip, D12 (if Eminem will show we aren’t sure) and Wiley take to the stage.

So, what to make of that selection, we aren’t all that sure. Most tickets for Wireless have now sold out, however, yet a pass to Friday and Saturday can still be purchased. Alas, yes, it’s quite an odd recipe, but if you’re looking for a nice day out, grab a rug, a picnic basket, and get your ticket now.
