Popular acts such as Megan Thee Stallion, Picture This, and Snow Patrol have also been confirmed for the three-day event which take place from Friday, September 2 to Sunday, September 4.
This is the first time that the festival will take place since 2019 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Glass Animals, London Grammar, Pixies, The Kooks, Wolf Alice, Sleaford Mods, and Brit Award winner Little Simz have been confirmed as well.
Organisers have increased the capacity of the main stage field by 60% which will give “picnickers unrivalled views of the stage.”
“And of course, easy access to see your favourite headliner is key, so the Jimi Hendrix arena entrance has doubled in size,” it says.
Tickets for the eagerly awaited festival go on sale tomorrow, Friday, March 11 at 9am and organisers say that tickets purchased for the 2020 and 2021 events will be valid and honoured for this year’s festival.
