Stevie Wonder to headline London's Calling Festival

Stevie Wonder has been announced as the second headliner for London's Calling Festival.

Calling, a new version of Hard Rock Calling will take place on Clapham Common on Saturday June 28 and Sunday June 29.

Stevie Wonder will perform on Sunday (June 29), joining previously announced headliners Aerosmith, who will headline on Saturday (June 28). Thunder, Walking Papers and Joe Bonamassa have also been confirmed to appear. Some 20 more acts will be announced in coming months.

Aerosmith's performance will be the first time the US rockers have played in the capital for four years.

Its been far too long since we have performed in the UK. We can't wait to bring back some of the classics as well as some of the new songs from 'Music from Another Dimension'. We miss our UK fans. See you soon."
