Wireless Festival U.K. Brings Out Drake As Surprise Guest

Prior to an official announcement, many fans with the skill of spotting basic geographic clues had started to suspect that something was up when he posted vacation shots on social media.

Fans then speculated as to who would take his place, with the Wireless Festival taking to Twitter promising something special. "Swipe to left for more vibes".

The Canadian hitmaker, whose album Scorpion topped the charts this week, rocked up on the Main Stage at the Finsbury Park event in London, hours after it was confirmed that DJ Khaled was unable to make the show.

Wireless tweeted blaming his no-show on "travel issues".
