Rihanna, Jay-Z to Perform at London Olympics Festival

The Olympics are getting down with the Roc. Rihanna and Jay-Z will help provide the soundtrack to the London 2012 Olympic Games this summer.

The Roc Nation superstars will headline BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend 2012, taking place a month before the Games on June 23 and 24, said organizers of the Olympics cultural festival.

“There will be absolutely something for everyone: from Beethoven to Jay-Z, from Shakespeare to Mike Leigh,” Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt said at the news conference in the Tower of London.

The event is expected to attract around 100,000 fans with performances from Florence + the Machine, Jack White, David Guetta, Tinie Tempah, and more.
