Athlete will be the closing act for the Greenwich Summer Sessions.
The quartet top the bill at the Old Royal Naval College in London on July 25 at the four-day music festival celebrating the history of the famed tourist attraction.
Seth Lakeman and The Levellers will kick off the inaugural Summer Sessions on July 21 with their only London performances this year, followed by Jools Holland and his Rhythm And Blues Orchestra and Alison Moyet on July 23.
Founder Pete Conway said: "Having promoted the first ever Rhythm And Blues Orchestra in a tent on Blackheath in the early 90s, it is only fitting that local boy Jools Holland is at the forefront of our first festival.
"Greenwich is a world-class destination point and the artists we have chosen to launch the first year match in stature the ambitions of the borough and its residents."
