June 14, 2012, 6:54 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- On 6 th July, the Wireless Festival with Barclaycard is to return to Hyde Park for its eighth successive year. Topping the bill in 2012 is Rihanna, with Drake, Nicki Minaj Jessie J and Labrinth also on the line-up.
Wireless is now well-established as one of London's biggest outdoor music events, with around 20,000 revellers showing up for each of the three days. Alongside the live acts will be the usual array of stalls and beer tents. The festival runs from 6th-8th July, with day tickets costing £52.50 each.
Central to the event's appeal is its location in the heart of London, making it ideal for music-lovers who aren't so keen on camping at one of the more remote festivals like Glastonbury. The festival also provides a great excuse to make the most of a weekend in the capital.
