Bruce Springsteen is to headline the Hard Rock Calling festival in the Olympic Park on 30 June, despite being cut off early at last year’s event.

Kasabian top the bill the day before, with Paul Weller, Klaxons, The Cribs and Tribes all supporting.

Other acts confirmed for the event – which will take place on the same weekend as Glastonbury – include Miles Kane and The Black Crowes.

Springsteen’s Hard Rock Calling set last year was covered in controversy when he was joined by Sir Paul McCartney for two songs. The pair were all set to play more hits at the festival when their performance was cut off shortly before 11pm after playing on longer than a 10:30pm deadline regarding late-night noise restrictions.

Following the incident, E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt complained Britain had become a “police state” and Mayor of London Boris Johnson said it was “an excessively efficacious decision” to cut the music legends off.

Tickets go on sale on Friday (08.03.13).
