Neil Young has been confirmed as the second headliner for this year’s Hard Rock Calling Festival in Hyde Park, taking to the stage on Saturday June 27.

Young will be supported on the bill by Uncut Music Award winners Fleet Foxes, Seasick Steve, The Pretenders and Ben Harper.

Speaking about the newly announced Hyde Park bill, The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde has commented: “We would play a garden shed to be on a bill with Neil Young but Hyde Park – summer – with ‘The Loner’? This is what makes a thousand hours on tour buses all worthwhile. This is why people get in bands.”

Previously announced Sunday (June 28) headliner will be Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. Tickets for that day sold out within a hour when they went on sale last month.

Tickets for June 27, headlined by Neil Young will be available for presale to Hard Rock and Live Nation subscribers at 9am on Thursday 12 March 12.

General sale starts at 9am on Friday March 13.
