Simon and Springsteen to headline Hard Rock Calling

Paul Simon and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are set to headline this summer's Hard Rock Calling festival in Hyde Park.

Fans of Simon's legendary album Graceland should book London hotels immediately as the legendary star is going to play the 1986 record in full to close the festival on Sunday, July 15th.

Springsteen and his backing band will headline the proceedings on Saturday, July 14th where fans can hope to hear songs off his recently released album Wrecking Ball, among all the usual classics.

Other acts to join the headliners include John Fogerty, Lady Antebellum and Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

Many more artists are still to be announced for the festival, including the headliner for Friday, July 13th.

Hard Rock Calling, which was originally known as Hyde Park Calling, has been going since 2006 with numerous big names in rock music making an appearance. Past headliners have included The Killers, Neil Young, Bon Jovi and Aerosmith.
