Kasabian, Bruce Springsteen to headline Hard Rock Calling 2013 – watch
Line-ups announced for two-day event in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
The festival, which takes place at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, London, runs on June 29 and 30 and will see Kasabian headline on the first night. They will be supported by a stellar line-up of acts including Paul Weller, Miles Kane, Kodaline, The Cribs, Klaxons and Tribes.
Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band will then perform on Sunday, June 30, with support coming from The Black Crowes and Alabama Shakes. The gig will mark the return of Bruce Springsteen to Hard Rock Calling one year on from the US singer headlining in 2012 when the power was famously pulled on his headline set during a collaboration with Paul McCartney.
"Last year, Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band made international news and history when their Hard Rock Calling encore with Sir Paul McCartney was unceremoniously cut short due to a noise curfew at Hyde Park," said CEO of Hard Rock International, Hamish Dodds. “This summer we are giving Bruce and the band the opportunity to finish what they started and make history again with a celebrated performance at Hard Rock Calling. Additionally, we are looking forward to christening Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park with a Saturday line-up of some of Britain's hottest talent, including headliner Kasabian, Paul Weller and more."
Tickets for Hard Rock Calling go on sale this Friday (March 8) at 9am with Saturday tickets priced at £45 and Sunday tickets £62.50.
