Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z have been confirmed to headline Yahoo! Wireless Festival 2013.

The Suit & Tie collaborators will each close one night of the first Wireless to be held at new venue, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London.

Justin will headline the festival on Friday, July 12 while Jay-Z will close the event on Saturday, July 13.

Steve Homes of Wireless promoters Live Nation said, "We're incredibly excited to take [Wireless] to its new home, London's iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and are delighted to secure Justin Timberlake and welcome back Jay-Z.

"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."

Other confirmed acts for the Friday include Snoop Dogg, Trey Songz, Frank Ocean and John Legend while Emeli Sandé, Rita Ora, Calvin Harris and Kendrick Lamar will join Jay-Z on Saturday's bill, with Miguel scheduled to perform on both days.

Live Nation had previously pulled Wireless and Hard Rock Calling from Hyde Park, after writing a formal letter of complaint to the Royal Parks Agency (RPA) about its tender and bid process for a new five-year contract.

Tickets for Wireless go on sale on Friday, February 22 at 9am, priced at £57.50 for day tickets and £110 for weekend tickets.
