Kings Of Leon are set to headline Tennent's Vital on August 14.

The festival takes place at Boucher Road Playing Fields in Belfast, with further line-up news and details of the second date to be revealed next month.

Tickets go on sale April 12 at 9am [BST].

Of the Kings Of Leon headline set, Nicola McCleery, Head of Marketing for Tennent's NI, commented: "We're incredibly excited that Kings Of Leon will be taking to the stage at the festival this August, as we're sure our fans will be. They're one of the finest bands in the world and a phenomenal live act, and I'm sure they'll treat us to an unmissable set."

Last year's Tennent's Vital event saw sets from Foo Fighters, The Stone Roses, The Black Keys and Florence and the Machine.

Kings Of Leon bassist Jared Followill recently confirmed to NME that his band's new album will be out in September.

Followill said: "I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I'm amazed how youthful it sounds. It's like a mix of 'Youth & Young Manhood' and 'Because Of The Times'."

Before the album is released, Kings of Leon will headline this summer's V festival. Taking place over the weekend of August 17-18 at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire, the two-day event will see the band take to the main stage along with Beyoncé – which will be her only European festival appearance this year.

They will also play shows in London, Manchester and Birmingham in June and July, staring at London's O2 Arena on June 12 and 13 before playing Manchester Arena on June 24 and 25. The tour then runs to Birmingham's LG Arena on July 9-10.

Kings Of Leon also release a career spanning, six-disc boxset, which will include all five of their studio albums plus a 2009 live DVD recorded in London, on May 13.
