The Killers are set to headline next summer's T In The Park.

The 20th anniversary of the Scottish festival previously confirmed headline slots for both Rihanna and Mumford and Sons and will also see sets from Alt-J , Jake Bugg, Paloma Faith and Of Monsters and Men.

Speaking about booking The Killers, T In The Park's Geoff Ellis said: "“The Killers topped our fan poll as the artist our audience most wanted to see in 2013, and we are absolutely thrilled to announce them as our third headliners for T in the Park’s 20th edition. They’re one of the biggest bands in the world, and when we last brought them to Scotland, demand was so high we could have sold out the show four times over. With the exception of their Wembley Stadium gig, this is their only announced UK gig of 2013, and we’re really excited to announce this spread of acts as a starter for 20 for our 20th year celebrations.”"

The Killers previously headlined the event in 2007 and 2009.

Tickets for the festival go on sale at 9am (GMT) Friday December 7. A limited number of tickets will be on sale at 2012 prices.

Speaking about next year's headliners, festival director Geoff Ellis added: "We have always worked incredibly hard to bring our T in the Park fans the best line-up possible, and this year is no exception. We are unbelievably excited that Rihanna and Mumford & Sons will be taking to the Main Stage in Kinross as we are sure our audience will be. We have many more fantastic acts in store for everyone and will announce these next year, but it's shaping up to be one hell of celebration."
