"A lot of people think that I'm doing a song with The Who but I'm not – I'm doing a song with Pink Floyd. I'm doing 'Wish You Were Here'"
He admitted the performance from the band would not include the full remaining members but admitted Nick Mason would be on the drums and they are looking to get others involved.
One Direction, Jessie J and Sir Elton John have all been linked with performances at the event which is set to celebrate the Best of British music.
Meanwhile, Ed is currently working on his new studio album and has also recently teamed up with the likes of Taylor Swift and Snow Patrol.
