And they're set to be joined by Wookie, Artful Dodger and Dane Bowers...

PUBLIC ENEMY are the latest addition to the line-up for the ESSENTIAL FESTIVAL at HACKNEY MARSHES in LONDON.

The rare UK date is the first confirmed show of the year for the legendary hiphop act, who will take their place as second on the bill below the Stereo MC’s.

Also recently added to the bill are Wookie, Artful Dodger and Dane Bowers to the Garage Nation stage on the Saturday.

Tickets are priced £35 per day and go on sale this weekend (July 28-29).

Revealing that there would be “a few live surprises” in their set, Public Enemy‘s Professor Griff told NME.COM: “The Essential Festival will be a good chance for us to re-introduce ourselves to generation next with Public Enemy‘s next level.”
