It's not wrong to say that Wireless has blown its budget in 2023 on an immense line-up and are now left scrounging whatever they could for this year. There are still some big names on there such as Future and 21 Savage, but... hopefully the rumours of Drake going as a surprise guest are true, otherwise this line-up is possibly too far gone to try and save. The response online has been crazy with thousands of complaints across the Wireless social media platforms. The festival account has actually been blocking fans who try to speak up about it. Ouch. Not cool.
Amazingly, Leeds and Reading festival has redeemed not only themselves, but the entirety of the UK for festivals this year. With headliners like Liam Gallagher, Catfish and the Bottlemen, and most notably Blink-182, it seems as though the event is going back to its old rock roots and finally starting to ditch the trendy, hip-hop acts - not completely, but baby steps people, we're getting somewhere. Other iconic names such as Two Door Cinema Club, Fontaines D.C., Neck Deep, and many more are also returning to the festival for 2024. Wow, wow, wow. I also can't go without mentioning the star that is Lana Del Ray will be headlining - don't fret people, Leeds & Reading have got the girlies covered too!
Now if neither of these festivals are your vibe, that's a-okay! There's always Download, Isle of Wight, or Parklife with many notable acts and DJs and, never forget, there's still the Glastonbury lineup due March and May. Let's be real though, all of the best festivals are abroad.
