It seems like Tel Aviv is going to be the music destination of the world this summer.

On Sunday, at a press conference in Israel's cultural capital, the full details of Justin Timberlake’s May 28th performance at HaYarkon Park were announced, making it official.

Justin will be in good popstar company, with Miley Cyrus reportedly hitting Tel Aviv sometime this summer as well.

The show will reportedly include 90 minutes of Justin, featuring both his classics, and his most recent offerings from two volumes of the 20/20 Experience.

According to show producer Udi Appleboim, tickets will go on sale at the Leann ticket office on Wednesday, with Timberlake fan club members being allowed to start buying theirs on Monday.

The price? It will range from NIS 370 (about $105 US) to NIS 1250 ($360). VIP tickets will be available through Timberlake’s official website.

When asked about the possibility of last minute cancellations, perhaps due to political pressures, Appleboim said that “there are always threats of boycotts, but as everyone gets them it doesn’t really have an effect.”

Hopefully, Roger Waters and Alice Walker won't get involved like they did last year when Alicia Keys came to Israel, to thunderous acclaim, no less.

Appleboim also suggested that if the first show were to sell out, there could be a second gig at HaYarkon Park.

Justin & Miley, however, aren't the only famous musicians making their way to Israel this year; Neil Young & Crazy Horse, the Rolling Stones, Soundgarden, and the Pixies are all expected to play this summer.
