Tom Baker, promoter at Eat Your Own Ears, the company behind Field Day, has said:
It's always a challenge trying to better the last Field Day line up. But I think next year's is as thrilling, inspiring and diverse as anything we've ever done.
He added: "I am personally honoured that Field Day will play host to the brilliant main stage double bill of ground breaking artists Animal Collective and Bat For Lashes."
"And alongside these, Zimbabwe's Thomas Mapfumo, seminal drummer Ginger Baker and Ethiopiques' legend Mulatu Astatke are true dream bookings for Field Day."
Early bird tickets are on sale now for £45.
