Drake, Pharrell also confirmed...

Kanye West and OutKast are set to play this year's instalment of Wireless.

Wireless is changing. Fast becoming one of Britain's most high profile events, the festival now occupies two sites: London's Finsbury Park and Birmingham's Perry Park.

Running between July 4th - 6th, Wireless is set to welcome a plethora of hip hop icons. Kanye West has confirmed plans for a rare UK show, with the 'Yeezus' icon set to be joined by the likes of Pharrell, Drake and Chance The Rapper.

Perhaps the biggest name on the bill thus far, though, is OutKast. The reformed duo will play Coachella this Spring, with Wireless marking Big Boi and Andre 3000's first joint appearance on UK soil in a decade.

Elsewhere, Clash cover star Earl Sweatshirt is set to appear, while the likes of Iggy Azalea, Azealia Banks, A$AP Ferg and more have also been confirmed.

Promoter Steve Homer from Live Nation said: "Wireless Festival celebrates its 10th year this year and we couldn’t be more thrilled to mark this momentous anniversary by taking it to a second site, Perry Park in Birmingham, and a brand new site in London, Finsbury Park. We are delighted to be welcoming back Drake and Kanye West as headliners and thrilled to secure Bruno Mars for his first UK Festival headline performance. They are perfect for Wireless Festival, securing these three artists plus many more world class acts continues to cement our reputation as a world class leader on the festival circuit".

Tickets go on sale at 9am this Friday (January 31st).

Wireless runs between July 4th - 6th.
