Nicki Minaj has thrilled her fans across the pond with the announcement of her headlining performance at the Wireless Festival this summer, assuring them that it will be nothing short of “epic.”
The rap sensation, momentarily taking a break from her ongoing beef with Megan Thee Stallion, teased her upcoming appearance at the London festival on Monday (January 29).
Scheduled to grace the festival’s opening day on Friday, July 12, Minaj will join a star-studded lineup that includes 21 Savage, Doja Cat, Future, Ice Spice, and Gunna, with more acts yet to be revealed.
Taking to social media to build anticipation, Minaj declared her set as “ICONIC” in response to the festival’s announcement that her performance day will be officially dubbed “Pink Friday,” a nod to her latest album, Pink Friday 2. Notably, her Wireless Festival appearance will follow closely on the heels of her May 28 show at London’s O2 arena, as part of her Pink Friday 2 World Tour.

Kicking off her tour on March 1 in Oakland, California, and concluding on June 12 in Stockholm, Sweden, Minaj has also lined up two summer festival dates so far — Afronation Portugal in late June and Wireless Festival the following month. Tickets for the tour are already available for purchase.
The festival revelation coincides with the release of Minaj’s new song “Big Foot,” directly aimed at Megan Thee Stallion.
The scathing diss track, dropped earlier on Monday, features Minaj making bold accusations about the Houston native, including references to her personal life and recent controversies.
In the track, Minaj mocks Megan for her height and the incident involving Tory Lanez, while also addressing allegations about liposuction and personal relationships.
