For the first time this year (2014), the event will take place across two sites in both London and Birmingham. It has moved from the Olympic Park in London to Finsbury Park and will also take place in Birmingham's Perry Park between July 4-6.

Pharrell Williams, OutKast and Ellie Goulding have also been announced for the festival, along with Clean Bandit, Rudimental, John Newman, Basement Jaxx and Angel Haze.

Speaking about the festival's 10-year anniversary this year, promoter Steve Homer commented in a statement: "We couldn't be more thrilled to mark this momentous anniversary by taking it to a second site, Perry Park in Birmingham.

"We are delighted to be welcoming back Drake and Kanye West as headliners and thrilled to secure Bruno Mars for his first UK Festival headline performance."

Wireless 2013 was headlined by Justin Timberlake and Jay Z, with the pair performing together as Legends of the Summer on the final night of the event.
