US pop act Black Eyed Peas will be the Friday night headliners at this year's Wireless festival in London's Hyde Park, organisers have announced.

The hip-hop collective, who performed at Sunday's Super Bowl in Texas, will perform on 1 July.

Dance duo the Chemical Brothers will headline the festival's second night the following evening.

Last year it was revealed that Britpop band Pulp would be reforming and would be the highlight of Sunday's line-up.

Organisers said Wireless would be Black Eyed Peas' only UK festival appearance.

The quartet, led by producer will.i.am, will be joined on the bill by British acts Tinie Tempah, Plan B and Example.

Support acts for the Saturday show include Janelle Monae, Chase & Status and Aphex Twin.

Further acts for the festival's final night have yet to be announced.
