The bumper crowd can look forward to the traditional mix of big names from around the globe.
Amongst the first to confirm their availability are Springboks' skipper Jean de Villiers and 68-times capped flanker Schalk Burger, with more household names to be announced shortly.
The Barbarians previously played Fiji in 1970 when the Islanders shocked the rugby world with a six-try victory that established them as a huge attraction wherever they played.
