The bash will take place Oscar night, Feb. 27, at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles.  Entertainment will be provided by Grammy-nominated British act Florence + The Machine, whose song "Dog Days Are Over" was performed last year on Glee.

In a statement, Elton said, "I am tremendously excited to announce that [they] have accepted by personal invitation to perform."

The event will feature an auction and food prepared by master chef Ludo Lefebvre. This year's event chairs include Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Sharon & Ozzy Osbourne, Nicole Kidman, Ellen Degeneres, Mary J. Blige and Jane Lynch.

Over the years, the event has raised millions for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
