Rapper Dizzee Rascal, boyband The Wanted and Dj Mark Ronson are among the musicians who will perform at a special concert in London to mark the 2012 Olympic torch relay through the U.K.
The trio of stars, along with singer Katy B and hip-hop duo Rizzle Kicks, will take to the stage in Hyde Park on 26 July (12) for the show.
Welsh capital Cardiff will host a gig in May (12) to mark the torch's journey, while Birmingham and Leeds in England and Glasgow in Scotland will hold concerts in June (12).
The Wanted star Tom Parker says, "We are so excited to be performing. This is a chance for everyone in the U.K. to experience the magic of The Games. Get a ticket and get involved!"
Dizzee Rascal adds, "Young people out there make a really positive difference and now we can recognise and celebrate them with music. It's wicked so get a ticket, see you there."
Emeli Sande and Eliza Doolittle will perform in Glasgow, Friendly Fires will take to the stage in Leeds, and rockers You Me At Six will entertain the crowds in Cardiff.
