SAFC commercial director Gary Hutchinson said:
"This is a change from the type of music event the Stadium of Light has staged previously and it's a really exciting development for us.
It's a brilliant line up and one that I'm sure will appeal to a wide audience.
The tremendous work of Sunderland City Council has made this possible, along with support from a range of partners across the region."
