Kicking off what will be the first show at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London since the London 2012 Games, one of Britain’s biggest and most contemporary bands Kasabian are announced in a UK festival exclusive, making their debut appearance at Hard Rock Calling on Saturday 29 June. The multi-million selling BRIT award-winning band are ready to get crowds rocking with hits including ‘Processed Beats’, ‘Club Foot’, ‘L.S.F’, ‘Empire’, ‘Shoot The Runner’, ‘Fire’, ‘Underdog’, ‘Days Are Forgotten and festival favourite ‘Velociraptor’ spanning their four studio albums.

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band are confirmed for Sunday 30 June in what marks a third epic headline performance at the festival. Back for some unfinished business, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band will bring The WreckingBall Tour to Hard Rock Calling.

“Last year, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band made international news and history when their Hard Rock Calling encore with Sir Paul McCartney was unceremoniously cut short due to a noise curfew at Hyde Park. This summer we are giving Bruce and the band the opportunity to finish what they started and make history again with celebrated performance at Hard Rock Calling,” said CEO of Hard Rock International, Hamish Dodds.

Hard_Rock_Calling_2013_Wows_Crowd_At_Queen_Elizabeth_Olympic_Park As the sunshine beamed down, Hard Rock Calling saw a packed crowd of over 80,000 enjoy a weekend of music across three stages. Saturday’s bill saw Paul Weller, Miles Kane, Twin Atlantic and Kodaline play some of their finest sets on the main stage, while Klaxons, Tribes, The View and The Cribs all ripped up the Pepsi Max Stage.

The crowds were roaring for the evening’s headliners Kasabian, who opened their 17-song set with ‘Days Are Forgotten’, before blasting through ‘Shoot The Runner’, ‘Reason Is Treason’, ‘Club Foot’, ‘Empire’, ‘LSF’, and finishing with a mind-blowing version if ‘Fire’ that got the crowds going wild.

The sun continued to shine down for Sunday’s line up. Black Crowes, Alabama Shakes, Zac Brown Band and Flamin’ Groovies were just some of the names that graced the stage.

Sunday night headliner Bruce Springsteen returned to Hard Rock Calling in a highly anticipated performance, as he belted out ‘Born In The USA’, ‘Jungleland’, ‘Bad Lands’, ‘Born To Run’, ‘Wrecking Ball’ and a rare live performance of ‘I’m On Fire’ to a packed crowd. Bruce was joined on stage during ‘Dancing In The Dark’ by the first of his special guests – his mum and sister. He was later joined by the Zac Brown Band for an amazing version of ‘Tenth Avenue Freeze Out’.
