CROSBY, Stills & Nash, Crowded House, Elvis Costello and Joshua Radin (pictured) will be joining Sir Paul McCartney on the bill for Hard Rock Calling 2010 on Sunday, June 27.

Folk rock supergroup Crosby, Stills & Nash will be second on the already outstanding festival bill. The trio of legendary singer-songwriters – including David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash – have all twice been inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and are currently embarking on an international tour.

Crowded House will also be joining the list of acts confirmed.

Formed in Australia and led by New Zealand born Neil Finn, the band soon shot to fame with massive hits including Don’t Dream Its Over, Fall at Your Feet and Weather With You.

Neil Finn commented: “This is a day that I wouldn’t want to miss for all the tea in China. I will be hearing songs from the masters McCartney, Crosby, Stills & Nash that I sang as a child and emulated as a teenager, and Elvis who laid down the gauntlet to all of us as we formed our bands.

“The scene is set, great music both modern and timeless…. and, God as if that wasn’t good enough, we get to play too!”

Elvis Costello will take to the Hard Rock Calling stage for the first time when he returns to the UK for a few select and widely anticipated performances.

While headlining the Pepsi Max Stage will be acoustic singer-songwriter Joshua Radin, critically acclaimed in the UK music press for his brand new album Simple Times, who was recently described by The Times as “medicine to the ears”.

Ellen DeGeneres and Miley Cyrus are among his fast growing list of admirers and his music has already featured on hit TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy, American Idol and One Tree Hill.
