LONDON (Billboard) - American pop singer-songwriter Pink will headline the 2010 Wireless festival in London's Hyde Park on July 2.

U.K. alt-rock act the Ting Tings will be special guests on the same date, promoter Live Nation announced Tuesday.

Wireless will be staged for the sixth consecutive year in 2010. Previous headliners at the festival, which features four stages, include the White Stripes, Kanye West, Morrissey, Fatboy Slim and Daft Punk.

"Hyde Park is such a legendary place to play, and I feel so honored that I am going to be the first female to headline the festival," Pink said in a statement.

Further acts will be announced at a later date for the July 2-4 weekend.

Meanwhile, U.K rapper Dizzee Rascal and dance act Chase & Status are the first artists to be confirmed for the Lovebox Weekender 2010. Dizzee Rascal will headline the first day of the July 16-18 festival. The event in east London's Victoria Park has been expanded to three days for 2010.
