Inclement weather wasn’t enough to stop the show for London’s three day Barclaycard Wireless Festival of live music from the hottest acts out today. Fans’ enthusiasm didn’t seem to wean either with the bad weather as they reveled in sets from Rihanna, Jessie J, Rita Ora, Drake, Deadmau5, Afrojack, The Roots, Labrinth and more. Deadmau5, Drake and Rihanna were the three headliners on Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively. Despite both Drake and Rihanna’s personal matters in the states–the former being involved in a NYC nightclub brawl with Chris Brown and the latter grieving her deceased grandmother–they gave the people of London a mega show like the superstars they are.
Although Rihanna had just buried her grandmother (RIP #GranGranDolly) she went all out with her Egyptian themed “Where Have You Been” performance. Drake brought out Nicki Minaj for their “Make Me Proud” collaboration where the two adorned over one another as friends and labelmates. And in cut-off shorts with trendy tights, Jessie J sang her hit “Domino” and “Price Tag.” From the looks of the video performances, London was definitely the place to be this weekend.
