“Securing these two artists – Jay Z for his only European performance of 2013 and Justin Timberlake for his only UK festival appearance this year – cements our reputation as a world class player on the festival circuit.”

Dennis Hone, chief executive of the London Legacy Development Corporation, which is in charge of the legacy of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, said: “We are delighted to welcome world class artists like Jay Z and Justin Timberlake to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

“This summer we are hosting a summer series of events and concerts, including the fantastic Wireless Festival. We are on track to deliver a great summer, a top visitor destination and a great legacy for east London.”
