Hard Rock Calling, London’s classic rock-rooted city festival, announced that Paul Simon will headline the Sunday evening set at this year’s sixth annual event. The three-day fest will take place July 13-15 in Hyde Park.

Simon will perform his 1986 breakout solo album, Graceland in its entirety at Hard Rock Calling. Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the South Africa choir that appeared on the original album recording, will also sing with Simon during the set.

As previously reported, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will headline Hard Rock Calling on Saturday. Springsteen also had top billing for the fest in 2009.
