Kicking off our top 10 wireless acts is the edgy, forthright and unapologetic singer/songwriter from Cambridge Etta Bond. The first official signing to Labrinth’s label Odd Child Recordings debuting ‘Ask Me To Stay’ and her more recent track ‘Feels Like’ and thus Etta Bond took our No.10 spot for must-see acts at Wireless.

Progressive house DJ and Producer is our No.9 must-see. Taking the party in the park feeling up a notch 3LAU is set to bring us that Vegas house vibe, that we all know and love, to the Wireless festival and will be sure to keep us all fully charged for a brilliant festival weekend.

Emerging electro R&B artist Sinead Harnett follows 3lau at No.8. After already touring with Rudimental, featuring on Wiley’s ‘Walk Away’ as well as recording in the world renowned West Lake studios, so although she is still being termed as ‘New act’ her industry acumen states otherwise. With rave reviews of her live performances and vocals to match, Sinead Harnett is without a doubt a contender for our must-see acts at this years Wireless.

Boston Funk Rock and R&B band Bad Rabbits is our No.7 must-see act. Adding their refreshing eclectic mix to the live acts at this years Wireless. This quintets feel good party vibe, quirky appeal and the fact that they ultimately just have fun, will make for an electrifying performance and we look forward to the Bad Rabbits show.

No festival this year would truly be complete without a little Major Lazer’s ‘Pon de floor’ and it would seem that this trio keep going from strength to strength and even with their latest single ‘Lean On’ we can confirm that Major Lazer will make for a tremendous Wireless festival. All that we would need to fully wet our palates is AVICCI, Guetta and Major Lazer together on one stage. So at No.6 for our must-see Wireless acts is Major Lazer.

With hits like ‘Wake Me Up’, ‘Hey Brother’ and ‘I Could Be The One’, Stockholm’s finest AVICII comes in at No.5 as our must-see. AVICII has to be the one many EDM lovers are eagerly anticipating and what would Wireless be without at least one AVICII hit single heard mixed live only in the way that AVICII does it best? So at No.5 is AVICII as a definite must-see act at Wireless.

Our 4th pick for must-see acts is the poetically and socially conscious rapper we’ve all grown to love, respect and admire Kendrick Lamar. Described by many blogs and magazines as a show-stopping performer and with his most recent performances receiving much praise it is definitely necessary to give a top spot to the one and only Kendrick Lamar.

DAVID GUETTA NICKI MINAJ
David Guetta who never fails to give us the summer hit after hit and Nicki Minaj who ensures our jaws are firmly fixed to the ground come in at No.3 of our must-see Wireless acts. As soon as you hear that these artists have teamed up, you already know you are in for some high-octane performances, so we brace ourselves for the Minaj-Guetta experience and the after effects.

With so many great artists at this years Wireless Festival it was difficult to decide who should come in at No.2, but R&B Neo-Soul singer Jehné Aiko took the spot as soon as we became aware that she will be gracing the Wireless stages with her effortless vocals and stunning demeanor. It is safe to say that we are sure to see a grand performance from this petite beauty. So at No.2 for our top 10 must-see acts is Jehné Aiko.

Headlining and already causing media frenzy amongst fans, global Hip-hop superstar Drake officially takes the No.1 spot for must-see acts at this year’s Wireless festival. If Drake stays true to form we can expect to see guest appearances and after already headlining the anniversary concert on Sunday and shutting down Finsbury Park, we can expect nothing but the best from Drake.
