Big Cardi B and today the B stands for BOOKED! Bardi is set to headline the anticipated Wireless Festival alongside more of the biggest names in hip hop and r&b.
The UK’s Wireless Festival announced the headliners for its 2022 lineup on Friday morning (February 25), boasting some of the biggest names in Hip Hop and R&B. Cardi B, J. Cole, Megan Thee Stallion, Tyler The Creator, A$AP Rocky, SZA and Nicki Minaj are headlining the festival between July 1 and July 10, with Cardi currently being the only act confirmed for fans to enjoy on two separate nights. Previous years have seen the festival take place in one location, but this year, it will be spread across three different spots: London’s Finsbury Park and Crystal Palace Park, as well as Birmingham’s NEC.
As if these stars weren’t enough, more were actually announced as I began publishing this article. Baby Keem, Central Cee, Burna Boy, Summer Walker, Lil Durk, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, Roddy Ricch, Jack Harlow, Polo G, Little Simz, Kali Uchis, Giveon, Snoh Aalegra, Gunna The Kid LAROI, Trippie Redd and more have all now been revealed to be performing at the event.

Wireless Festival 2021 took place in September with Future, Migos and Skepta headlining. The likes of Gunna, Lil Baby, Lil Uzi Vert, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Meek Mill, Polo G, Swae Lee, Megan Thee Stallion, Rick Ross and Young Thug were also on the lineup.
During Future’s set, Drake came out as a surprise guest in his first performance since the release of his Certified Lover Boy album, where he performed “Jumpman,” “Life Is Good,” “Way 2 Sexy,” “Laugh Now Cry Later,” “What’s Next” and “Nonstop.”
“I don’t even remember what this shit feels like,” Drizzy said on stage. “I just want to tale in all the beautiful people. We love you so much. We missed you so much. We wrote a lot of songs that we played in our studio that we never got to do in front of y’all, so I was hoping I could do some of those songs I never got to play for you tonight.”
It’ll be many of the mentioned artists return to a festival stage post “pandemonium” as well so it’s surely set to be an event to remember. Who are you looking forward to seeing hit the stage?
