Beyonce turned out to support her husband Jay-Z as he headlined the final night of this year's Wireless Festival.
Jay-Z headlined this year's Wireless Festival, held in London's Hyde Park. He kicked off his set with Run This Town, which he recorded with Rihanna and Kanye West. The rapper's wife Beyonce turned out to support him as did Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna.
Lily Allen provided support for Jay-Z in one of her final live performances before taking a career break. The 25-year-old told the crowd: "I appreciate that you were jumping up and down because this is probably my last gig in London for some time."
Tinie Tempah performed on the second stage at the Wireless Festival on Sunday (4 July) before headliners Chase & Status. He revealed he'd finished his debut album: "I really wanted to push the boundaries. I can't wait for everybody to hear it."
Chipmunk was there to entertain a crowd of 50,000. Having performed at three shows in 24 hours, he arrived via a special mode of transport: "Yeah, in a chopper. It was fun. Because I was at T4 [on the beach]. I want to do some more."
Professor Green performed on the second stage on Sunday. The 26-year-old Londoner also sang his duet with Lily Allen Just Be Good To Green on the main stage and her track Smile.
LCD Soundsystem headlined the Saturday night at Wireless. The group were forced to stop their set halfway through after bottles were thrown on stage by some members of the crowd but they started up again shortly afterwards.
Rappers Snoop Dogg and Missy Elliott also performed on the Saturday of the three-day festival. Missy Elliott turned up late for her set and was forced to finish early after organisers pulled the plug during Lose Control.
Plan B (Ben Drew) performed on the opening night of the festival (2 July). The festival also saw sets from Taylor Hawkins And The Coattail Riders, Gossip, The Temper Trap and former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash.
The Ting Tings played a set on the main stage before Friday headliner Pink. They revealed they'd "pretty much finished" their second album in Berlin and would start working on their third record next year.
Pink headlined the opening night of the Wireless Festival. She used the same set from her world Funhouse Summer Carnival tour, using a trapeze wire to glide down on to the stage from a box suspended above the stage.
