Two people reportedly died over the weekend after attending this year’s Wireless Festival.

A 20-year-old woman allegedly told staff she felt ill and asked for medical treatment at the event which was headlined by Drake on Sunday night (July 8), according to confirmed reports.

She was believed to have been taken to hospital, where she died on Monday (July 9).


Scotland Yard told reporters an investigation has been launched into what led to her death and enquiries are ongoing.

Meanwhile, in a separate incident at the Finsbury Park event, a 16-year-old boy also reportedly died on Sunday after suffering a suspected asthma attack while leaving at about 9.40pm.

He was said to have received medical attention from police in Seven Sisters Road, who gave emergency first aid before medics arrived. But he later died in hospital at 12.30am.

Khaled cancelled at the last minute due to “travel issues”. The previous night (July 7), Stormzy headlined the event.

During his performance, Drake duetted with Giggs on ‘KMT’ and went on to perform ‘Nonstop’, ‘I’m Upset’ and ‘Nice For What’ live for the first time.
