Do you need help getting excited for the Olympics? Maybe this will do the trick.
The two will perform during the BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend on June 23 and 24, a full month before the games start. Jay-Z will be performing on the 23rd, while our girl Rihanna will hit the stage on the 24th.
Jay-Z and Rihanna might be the most high profile acts, but they're not the only ones hitting the stage. Expect performances from Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, Flo Rida and Will.i.am. Over 100 artists are expected to perform.
When describing the event, Jeremy Hunt, the Culture Secretary, said:
“There will be absolutely something for everyone: from Beethoven to Jay-Z, from Shakespeare to Mike Leigh."
We can't wait.
