Band Of Skulls have been announced as the next headliners at 2013's Standon Calling Festival.

The band will join De La Soul at the top of the bill for the bash, which takes place in the grounds of Standon Lordship manor house in Standon, Hertfordshire, from August 2 to 4 next year. "We can't wait to play Standon Calling - playing the huge festivals is great but the smaller, more intimate ones like Standon where you can really connect with the audience are really special," a statement from Band Of Skulls reads. Also announced today are Bastille, AlunaGeorge and King Charles.

The event, now in its 13th year has previously seen performances from Friendly Fires, Mumford & Sons and Florence & The Machine.

The full Standon Calling lineup announced so far is:

[b]De La Soul
Band Of Skulls
King Charles
The Cirrespondents
Gentleman's Dub Club
