Following their 'Suit & Tie' collaboration, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake have been confirmed to headline the 2013 Wireless Festival along with several other big name acts announced to take to the stage at the Olympic Park this summer.

Previously held at Hyde Park, the Wireless Festival has now been transported to the Stadium at the Olympic Park where Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake will perform their only UK and European dates.

Marking his comeback to music after a six-year hiatus, 'Suit & Tie' singer Justin will be headlining on Friday 12th July to promote his new album 'The 20/20 Experience,' while Watch The Throne star Jay-Z will be gracing the main stage on Saturday 13th July, five years after he last performed at the festival.

Although they are headlining separate dates, it's possible that Jay-Z may make an appearance during Justin's show as the pair recently collaborated on the singer's comeback single, 'Suit & Tie.'

Joining Justin on Friday will be Snoop Dogg, Trey Songz, John Legend, Miguel and Frank Ocean who has been announced as a special guest. Other acts confirmed to precede Hova on stage include Emeli Sande, the rapper's Roc Nation signee Rita Ora, Kendrick Lamar, Miguel, DJ Fresh/Live and special guest Calvin Harris.

Last year's festival saw the likes of Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Drake and Calvin Harris headline the stages.

Tickets for the 2013 Wireless Festival go on sale on 22nd February at 9am and are priced at £57.50 plus booking fee, while two day tickets will be available at £110 plus booking fee.
