Wireless to return to Germany in 2019

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.

Wireless Germany to debut in 2017

After 12 years in the UK, Live Nation’s Wireless Festival is making its debut in Germany next summer.

Headlined by The Weeknd and Justin Bieber, Wireless Germany will take place at the Commerzbank Arena (44,000-cap.) in Frankurt on 24 and 25 June, offering some 40,000 German fans the chance to attend what promoter Live Nation GSA calls the “ultimate summer party”.

“The London Wireless Festival has been writing music history in Britain for over a decade,” reads an announcement by Live Nation. “With outstanding performances by the most popular urban and pop artists, it has become the most prestigious event of its kind.

“The line-up [for its premiere in Germany] offers everything a fan’s heart could desire, from the most important newcomers to classics and the biggest stars.”

Also on the bill are Sean Paul and German hip-hop acts Marteria and Beginner.

The launch of the new festival comes on the heels of Live Nation expanding several of its other festival properties in continental Europe, with Download Madrid and Lollapalooza Paris both debuting next year.
