Radio One's Hackney weekender is vying for the crown as the biggest-name festival of the summer with another international superstar joining the line-up.
Nicki Minaj is the latest artist to be added to the bill of the London event, which will take place on 23-24 June 2012. Headliners at the show are Jay-Z and Rihanna who each will close a night of the event respectively. Minaj will perform on the Saturday night before Jay-Z and Kasabian and alongside Example, The Vaccines, Maccabees, Leona Lewis and Flo Rida.
Minaj recently cancelled a US festival show for radio station Hot 97 after an on stage insult from one of the hosts of the show who referred to her a not being 'real hip-hop'.
Tickets for Radio One's Hackney weekender were given away free to residents in the surrounding area and is part of the celebration of this summer's Olympic games.
