Rapper cancels appearances in London and Birmingham...

Opening this weekend, Wireless is now spread across two sites.

Gathering fans in Birmingham and London, this year's line up includes Bruno Mars, OutKast, Basement Jaxx, Iggy Azalea and more.

Drake was scheduled to perform, but earlier today (July 3rd) rumours began circulating on social media indicating that the Canadian rapper was set to pull out of the event.

Sadly, this has proved to be the case. In a short statement Drake said:

"To my beloved fans, it truly breaks my heart that I won't be able to perform as planned at Wireless and Roskilde this weekend. I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me. I will be focused on resting for a quick recovery. I have the best fans in the world and I can't wait to come back to make more incredible memories together."

Moving quickly, Wireless have confirmed that Kanye West will now play two slots in London while Rudimental will take care of Drake's slot in Birmingham.
