Last night I attended the Wireless Festival Launch Party which took place in the Birmingham O2 Academy2. The party was attend by competition winners (as well as press and bloggers) and featured guest dj’s including Tinie Tempha, Sparky from Free Radio and Scratch Radio from Birmingham University. A live performance from a secret guest performer had been promised and this turned out to be Ella Eyre!
Now I’ll admit I’m not good with music, I normally only hear of bands and singers about a year after everyone else, so its unsurprising that this name meant nothing to me.. however it does now! I have never seen a solo performer with so much energy; Ella is like a mini Tina Turner complete with hair flicks, foot stomps and a huge roof raising voice. She has been signed by Virgin Records and I’m sure will be all over our screens soon!

The event was designed to get people interested in the Wireless Festival which takes place in London this summer, tickets go on sale this Friday (31st) and the line up has just been announced:
I’ve only heard of a few of these names but I’ve been assured by those in the know that it’s an amazing range of the biggest names within music today. If the launch party standard is anything to go by you’d be mad to miss out!
