The Jamaican runner confirmed his appearance at the meet in a statement on the International Association of Athletics Federations' website Monday.
Bolt says he is eager to return to Switzerland's largest city, as he loves the electric atmosphere at the stadium.
"I am excited to go back to Zurich," he said in a statement on the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) website.
"I love the electric atmosphere at the stadium and both the competition and the events during the week of the meeting are always extremely well-organised."
The fastest man on the planet says he will decide whether to run the longer or shorter sprint nearer to the time of the meeting August 29.
