Florence And The Machine and Lily Allen are among the acts set to play London's inaugural Other Ball.

The event, which will raise money for the Arms Around The Child charity, takes place on June 4 at a secret location. The artists set to appear were announced by Mark Ronson, who will also be playing the event. Rudimental and Blood Orange will also play.

Speaking about the event, Ronson commented: "I'm deeply honoured to be involved in the Other Ball London. It is a privilege to be able to help Arms Around The Child help children living in extreme adversity find the love and caring of others that most of us take for granted every day."

The Guardian reports that the event is based on a similar party which was held in December of last year in New York, where The Black Keys and A$AP Rocky performed.
