Tickets still available for giant Wireless festival in Brum
3:57pm Thursday 3rd July 2014 in Music
TICKETS are still available for the three day Wireless music festival in Birmingham this weekend.
Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Groove Armada, Rudimental are just a few of the stars appearing at Perry Park on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
However, US hip hop star Drake pulled out of the festival due to ill health.
He said: "To my beloved fans, it truly breaks my heart that I won't be able to perform as planned at Wireless this weekend.
"I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me."
He added: "I will be focused on resting for a quick recovery. I have the best fans in the world and I can't wait to come back to make more incredible memories together."
Festival organisers, Live Nation have pulled out all the stops to make sure that fans still have an amazing time at what is now firmly established as the coolest, most must-be-seen-at party in the UK festival calendar.
They have confirmed that all 3 days of the highly anticipated Wireless Festival will go ahead as planned in both London and Birmingham, with the following changes.
On Saturday 5th July fans in London can look forward partying with 21 Grammy winning, multi talented rapper/producer and megastar Kanye West for a second night in a row.
Fans in Birmingham will be treated to an extended set from the platinum selling, multi award-winning Rudimental, BBC’s ‘Festival Band of The Summer’ 2013, who will now be joined by an array of very special guests (more on this to be announced asap).
