ASAP Rocky and Chris Brown give Energetic Wireless Festival performance

ASAP Rocky and Chris Brown give an energetic headline performance during the opening day of the Wireless Festival at Crystal Palace Park in London.

That rap music festival is taking place at three sites in London and Birmingham over two weekends.

American rapper ASAP Rocky, 33, took to the stage in an all black outfit for his special UK festival performance.

Touted as Europe’s biggest celebration of contemporary black music, the event began on Friday and will end on July 11.

Performances are taking place at two London venues – at Crystal Palace and Finsbury Park, and at the Birmingham NEC – with the festival returning there for the first time since 2014.

ASAP Rocky’s performance marks his return to English soil for the first time in six years.

The rapper reportedly welcomed his first child with singer Rihanna in May.

American singer Brown, 33, performed ASAP ahead of Rocky, taking to the stage in a pink hoodie and blue jeans, paired with a platinum buzz cut that featured a blue stripe.

Brown’s headline slot on Wireless marked its first UK festival performance in more than a decade.

Friday also saw performances by Australian rapper The Kid Laroi and American rapper Lil Uzi Vert – both of whom also gave UK festival specials.

The event will be SZA’s first European festival headline slot and the UK’s first in four years.

That same weekend Dave, who recently won Best Hip Hop/Grime/Rap Act at the 2022 Brit Awards, will head to Birmingham, followed by Cardi B on Saturday and Jay Cole on Sunday.

As part of a new partnership with BBC Radio 1Xtra, radio DJ Snooki Shai also hosted a set on Friday – the presenter, whose real name is Cheyenne David, has his own show on the network since 2018.
