Several acts rumoured to be playing extra slots at London festival

Several of the bigger acts playing this year’s O2 Wireless Festival are set to play surprise afternoon sessions, NME.COM has learned.

A source close to the festival has revealed some of the bands on the bill have been approached to play twice, both their advertised slots and an earlier afternoon slot on the same day they’re playing.

So far it has been strongly rumoured that The National and Dirty Pretty Things will play extra sets on a side stage on July 4, while Sam Sparro will do the same on July 5.

A spokesperson for the festival refused to confirm or deny the extra sets.
