After taking a hiatus in 2018, Live Nation will stage its Wireless festival in Germany for the second time next summer.

American rapper Travis Scott will headline Wireless Germany 2019, which takes place on 5 and 6 July at the new greenfield venue of Alter Rebstockpark (40,000-daily cap.) in Frankfurt. (The inaugural Wireless Germany, in 2017, took place at Commerzbank Arena in the same city.)

Other performers include James Blake, Rae Sremmurd, J Balvin, Rita Ora and Migos, as well as local hip-hop acts Marteria & Casper and Bonez MC & RAF Camora.

Two-day GA tickets are priced from €139, which also includes tickets for public transport to and from Rebstock Park, described as a “green oasis in the middle of the metropolis” of Frankfurt.

The festival will additionally feature “breakdance performances, street art, fashion, chill-out areas, open-air shisha bars” and more, according to the launch announcement.

Scott has also been announced as a headliner of the inaugural Lollapalooza Stockholm, announced by Live Nation in May, alongside Foo Fighters, Lana Del Rey and Swedish artist Laleh.
