are among 12 Olympic champions signed up.
The event will double as the 2013 London Grand Prix, which usually takes place at Crystal Palace, and will be held on Friday and Saturday, followed by a day of Paralympic events on Sunday, 28 July.
It will take place on the one-year anniversary of the opening ceremony of London 2012, two weeks before the start of the World Athletics Championships in Moscow on 10 August.
Bolt, who set an Olympic record in the 100m and helped his team-mates post a new world record in the 4x100m relay at London 2012, will use the event as a warm-up for Moscow.
Other than the Olympics, the 26-year-old Bolt has not raced in Britain since 2009, when he last competed in the London Grand Prix, because of tax rules which would force him to give up a share of any appearance or prize money, plus a cut of any endorsements.

"The crowd were amazing at the Games and I hope they will be out again in their numbers at the end of July.
