Deadmau5 to headline at Wireless Festival
Deadmau5 will be joined by an enviable feast of talent including Maverick Sabre, Knife Party, Feed Me and Ms Dynamite.
Deadmau5 is the final headliner announcement for this year's Barclaycard Wireless Festival with Drake already announced for Saturday 7 July and Rihanna for Sunday 8 July. Barclaycard Wireless Festival 2012 is already shaping up to be the biggest and best selling Barclaycard Wireless Festival in the event's history.
Canadian producer and DJ Deadmau5 is firmly established as one of the most innovative and successful electronic live acts in popular music today. He has a host of accolades - four Grammy Award nominations, three International Dance Music Awards, three Juno Awards and was described as the "most influential, relevant and forward thinking person in electronic music" at the 2010 Beatport Music Awards.
London born, Irish raised singer songwriter Maverick Sabre has his name ringing round the world right now and rightly so. First championed by BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra's MistaJam as one of his "Ones to Watch for 2011", Maverick Sabre's gritty yet soulful voice is drawing audiences in and leaving them hooked. His debut album 'Lonely Are the Brave', released in February this year, has received widespread acclaim for its catchy lamenting social-political content.
Aussie DJ duo Knife Party will now be hitting the Hyde Park stage on Friday 6 July. The act is the newly formed side project of Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen, members of Australian electronic rock band Pendulum. Also joining the line-up is the much hyped electro act Feed Me. Double BRIT Award and three time MOBO Award and Mercury Prize winner artist Ms Dynamite also joins the line-up, and is set to bring her distinct sound to the Barclaycard Wireless Festival crowds. A formidable presence in the UK, her third studio album is set for release this year.
With many more exciting acts still to be announced Barclaycard Wireless Festival 2012 is set to be an unmissable event.
