Flaming Lips at Wireless festival

For a brief moment earlier in the week, as it looked like summer was slowly creeping up on us, our minds wandered to the summer festival season, especially this Londonista’s favourite inner-city festival, the O2 Wireless Festival in Hyde Park.

The headliners for this year have been announced, and the lineup as a whole looks to be the best since the festival began. You’ve got all the bands you know and love, and some new bands who you’ll be hearing lots about over coming months.

Tickets are on sale now, priced at the "earlybird" price of £40 a day. Go on over to Ticketmaster to get your tickets. The lineup at the moment looks something like this, however expect more bands to be added weekly!
