This is both Bieber and Rihanna's only appearance at a U.K. festival this summer, according to a press release. Other festival performers recently announced include Sia, David Guetta, Little Mix and Years & Years. The rest of the lineup will be announced after the Brit Awards on Wednesday, according to Billboard

The event will also feature the festival's first BBC Radio 1 Summer of Dance stage, which will play a dance-focused mix. The lineup for that will be announced on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show on March 4. 

Attendees who choose to camp can select between pre-pitched Pink Moon Camping, regular campsites or the VIP V Style Luxury Camping. 

Last year's lineup included Calvin Harris, Sam Smith, the Script, Ellie Goulding and Kasabian.
