We've been getting so excited writing foreign festival guides that we've completely neglected London's very own Wireless Festival. Happening between Wednesday and Sunday next week, the festival promises an ecletic line-up and various additional treats along the way. Top that with the fact that it's only in Hyde Park and surely we're onto a winner.

Tickets are still on sale for £37.50 a day and gates open from 2pm each day. If accidentally catching James Blunt on stage sends you spiralling out of control then you can take a break and get on site massages, failing that Superdrug are going to be at hand to do your nails so you can impress Julian Casablancas! If you happen to be on O2 then make sure you text BLUEROOM to 60600 for access to another stage.

Click to see our highlights from each of the days:

Wednesday: Well worth taking a day off for.

See The Strokes, Belle & Sebastian, Super Furry Animals, and White Rose Movement.

Don't miss : The Racounteurs.

Thursday: A mellower day - perfect for the sunshine.

Relax to David Gray, Fun Lovin' Criminals, Joan As Policewoman and John Cale.

Don't miss : KT Tunstell.

Friday: Make it a 4 day weekend.

Be sure to catch Pharrell, Massive Attack, Flaming Lips, DJ Shadow, and Bricolage. Don't miss : Metric.

Saturday : Get chilled and a little bit funky

See: Eels, Zero 7, The Upper Room, Killa Kela, and the Puppini Sisters.

Don't miss: Chic!!!!!

Sunday:

Round it off with the amazing Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, Mystery Jets, and OK GO.

Don't miss New Young Pony Club.
