The annual event, this year headlined by Justin Timberlake and Jay Z, will expand to two cities for next year with a new venue in London also among the announcement made by organisers earlier today (December 16). A post on the festival's official Facebook page states that Wireless 2014 will feature "3 Days. 2 New Venues. 1 Huge FESTIVAL."
