Following an incredible line-up on Friday, including Pharrell, Tinie Tempah and Foxes, festival-goers at Wireless were warmed up for the weekend’s festival antics. Saturday was another jam packed day of music from the likes of Labrinth, Rudimental and Kanye West.
With showers forecasted, out came the pac-a-macs and jellies made way for wellies as the crowds poured in. OFFICE favourites Hunter and JuJu were spotted throughout the day on many a fashionable foot.
A midday downpour did nothing to dampen the spirits as Azalea Banks took to the stage performing a number of hits included last year’s no.1 hit, 2-1-2. A hard act to follow, yet Labyrinth stole the style stakes, performing in a striped two-piece which had him looking more convict couture than pop star!
The sun came out just in time to see Rudimental start their set, pumping up the crowd ready for the day’s big headline act to follow. As one of the edgier festivals, the fashion was a refreshing take on some of the summer’s typical trends. Tassels took a back seat whilst slogan tees were dressed down with daisy dukes and cool kicks; Nike and Converse reigning supreme in a crowd of festival fans.
Fashionably late and wearing his signature attitude, Kanye West appeared as a roar of screams filled Finsbury Park. Performing his full set in a fierce face mask, the male diva dominated the stage for two hours, entertaining the crowd with hits such as Stronger, Jesus Walks and Flashing Lights. The rapper wrapped up with a dedication to Drake who was unable to perform. But this certainly didn’t deter the fans who were still there in the thousands as the day came to an end.
The Sunday main stage was graced by Ellie Goulding, Outkast and Bruno Mars, smashing sing-a-long hits such as Ms Jackson and Just The Way You Are. Kimono’s and ripped denim was the outfit of choice for many, topped off with studded ankle boots or Dr Martens to complete that rock chick look. The rain poured but this didn’t stop the party for those dedicated festival goers who saw Wireless off in true British fashion!
