Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Elbow and Biffy Clyro have all been added to the bill for next summer's Isle Of Wight Festival.
The Guy Garvey-led five-piece will play the Main Stage on the festival's opening night on Friday June 22, with Biffy Clyro set to follow on Saturday June 23. Former Oasis guitarist Gallagher will play the same stage on the evening of Sunday June 24.
The Vaccines, Noah And The Whale, Example and Madness have also been confirmed to play at the bash.
So far, only one of the festival's headline acts has been announced, with Bruce Springsteen set to close the event on June 24. The singer recently revealed he had almost finished work on his 18th studio album, but is yet to give the LP a title.
Last month, festival organiser John Giddings claimed he was hoping to secure an "American trilogy" of headliners, and also said that the festival's second stage The Big Top would have "more dance and urban acts than ever before".
The confirmed line-up for the Isle Of Wight Festival so far is:
Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Noah And The Whale
