Don’t get your hopes up fellow Australians, they’re not coming here.
Rather, they’re all headlining Wireless Festival, aka another one of those UK festival gems that gives those fancy-accented folk across the pond another reason to be smug and yet another bragging right over ‘Straya. The three-day event takes place over July 4-6 across two venues, London’s Finsbury Park and Perry Park in Birmingham, and boasts a FOMO-inducing lineup they no doubt made purely to piss us off/symbolically spit in our faces. The 2014 bill features Kanye, Drake, OutKast, Pharrell, Wiz Khalifa, Earl Sweatshirt, Chance The Rapper, Azealia Banks, Iggy Azalea, A$AP Ferg, and plenty more that I simply refuse to type out because I’m getting increasingly bitter.
Take a look at the full lineup below, think about how plurnt you would get and then suppress your emotions when you remember the price of international flights. Unrelated Google search: do Qantas accept payment in kidneys?
Head to the official website to get tickets if you’re the real deal and not one of those plebs on Facebook who claim they’re going to Glastonbury/Coachella/Tomorrowland every year but mysteriously never produce the pics.
