British pop star Robbie Williams and US group The Black Eyed Peas will join Ariana Grande at Sunday's charity concert in Manchester for families of the victims of last week's terror attack, organisers said.

The "One Love Manchester" gig at the city's Old Trafford cricket ground has already attracted a stellar line-up including Katy Perry, Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Pharrell Williams, Miley Cyrus, Take That, Usher, Little Mix and One Direction's Niall Horan.

The concert will honour the 22 people killed -- many of them children -- and the 116 wounded in the suicide bomb attack at the end of Grande's show at the Manchester Arena on May 22.

Manchester-born Salman Abedi, a 22-year-old of Libyan origin, was named as the bomber.

Proceeds from the concert will go to a fund set up to help the victims' families. The attack shook the country and led to the temporary suspension of a general election campaign.
