Mystery Jets and Bastille are set to headline this summer's Blissfields festival.

Blissfields will take place July 5-7 at Vicarage Farm, Hampshire.

Post War Years, Beans On Toast, Matt Corby and Clean Bandit will also be playing the 13th annual Blissfields event.

Speaking about playing the festival, Bastille's Dan Smith said:

We're massively excited about our first ever headline slot at a festival. Particularly because we love Blissfields so much, and because they've been so supportive to us over the last couple of years.


Bastille release their debut album 'Bad Blood', on March 4, shortly before embarking on a headline tour including two nights at London's Shepherds Bush Empire.

Speaking to NME about the production of the album, Dan Smith said: "We basically made the album in a studio the size of a cupboard, so it was one extreme to the other. Producing the record, I wanted to off-set epic sounding instrumentation with lyrics that combine intimate stories or conversation. The contrast was something that appealed to me."

Bastille's next single, the first from the album, will be 'Pompeii', which is released on February 25. "It's a moment of reflection and introspection, but they’re trapped in time so it's a moment that'll go on for an eternity," says Smith.
