Justin Timberlake and Hip-hop mogul Jay-Z are set to headline London’s infamous Wireless Festival this summer.  Live Nation, promoters of the festival, have put together a rock solid show in London. The two-day event will feature some of the hottest acts in the music industry from the likes of Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, John Legend, Snoop Dogg, Miguel and Trey Songz. Other artist like London’s own Rita Orca, Calvin Harris and Emeli Sande will also take the big stage.

Timberlake is making his musical comeback after a spell of acting in films such as The Social Network, Friends With Benefits and In Time. JT’s forthcoming new album, The 20/20 Experience, is set to hit store shelves on March 19. The two-day festival will take place at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on June 12 and June 13.

The concert comes at a time of unconfirmed reports of a joint 10-city tour for the two real-life friends. The purported idea of a joint stadium tour with “JT” and “JZ” was brought on after their amazing Grammy Awards performance of “Suit & Tie,” followed by a post-Grammy show at the Hollywood Palladium on the same night.

Tickets for the Wireless Festival go on sale on February 22.
