London's Hyde Park is set to become one big dance-floor on Saturday 3rd July with the announcement of some major names in clubbing joining the Wireless Festival bill, as well as a band tipped for big things in the coming years. Tickets for this day go on sale at 9am on Friday 19th March.
James Murphy has recently announced that the next LCD Soundsystem album could be their last, so you will HAVE to catch them live this year. They will headline the Saturday night, airing tracks from their forthcoming fourth album as well as the post-punk-funk anthems that have garnered endlessly favourable reviews and adoration across the globe. 'Daft Punk Is Playing At My House', 'Losing My Edge' and 'North American Scum' are just a few of their freshest bangers that come to the mind (and feet) - should be a goody.
LCD may also play 'Get Innocuous' from their excellent 'Sound of Silver' set - and if they don't then the other headliners who once remixed the track, 2manydjs, just might. The Belgian big-beat duo, aka Soulwax, will perform a 'live' set that will no doubt be culled from their huge pile of remix projects as well as their own Radio Soulwax CD bootlegs and 'legal' studio recordings. Utterly unique, you've gotta see em.
Other attractions are DJ Shadow and U.N.K.L.E., two acts that have played together before, recorded together and remixed for the same labels (Mo Wax most notably) and who have produced some landmark music over the last 2 decades. Shadow's 'Endtroducing' and U.N.K.L.E.'s 'Never Never Land' are worthy of being in anyone's collection quite frankly and their appearances at Wireless should be memorable. The Big Pink will complete the line-up, bringing bruising electro-rock and pounding beats to the green space.
