Travis Scott, Black Sherif, Lil Uzi Vert, Others Announced For Wireless Festival
Ghanaian music star Black Sherif is heading to the Middle East for the inaugural edition of Europe’s biggest celebration of urban music and pop culture, Wireless Festival.
Taking to the stage right before Travis Scott will be American rapper, Lil Uzi Vert. Revered in the rap game, fans can look forward to his unique take on rap and his large repertoire of songs like Just Wanna Rock, 20 Min, and Money Longer when he entertains the Etihad Park crowd on March 11th.
With Live Nation’s commitment to promoting regional talent, a host of the biggest rappers in South Asia and the Middle East have also been confirmed to join Wireless Festival.
Ghanaian singer and rapper, Black Sherif, will also be performing some of his hits to get the crowd pumped. Having gained popularity in 2021 with his first song First Sermon, Black Sherif has gone from strength to strength with his blend of highlife, reggae, and hip-hop, and UK drill.
One of the most established Egyptian trap artists of his generation, Wegz has been growing in recognition: he performed the official World Cup 2022 song Ezz El Arab (Arab Glory) with a spirited set that closed out the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
