New BFF’s Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake are headed to the UK this summer for the Wireless Festival.
The two “Suit & Tie” stars are joining John Legend, Emeli Sande and Kendrick Lamar this July at London’s Olympic Park. Live Nation confirmed the news this week after securing a deal recently with the venue.
Jiggaman and JT are the first lead performers announced for the festival, since Live Nation cut ties with London’s Hyde Park after noise restrictions and cost factors. However, there competitors AEG are planning an event for June dubbed British Summer Time.
According to THR, Timberlake is scheduled to perform on Friday, July 12th along with Snoop Dogg, Trey Songz, John Legend and special guest Frank Ocean. Jay-Z will follow up the next evening, July 13th with Kendrick Lamar, Calvin Harris, Rita Ora, DJ Fresh and Emeli Sande.
Festival officials say this is Jay-Z’s only European performance this year and Timberlake’s only U.K. appearance this summer.
