Brit Award and Ivor Novello award-winning Mike Skinner released his third album "The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living" last year to great acclaim and this will be his only UK festival appearance in 2007.

More artists will be revealed in the coming weeks, with the second major announcement about headliners being made this Thursday (March 29).

Early bird tickets cost from £25 for Cardiff and from £30 for London and are available from Friday (March 30) at 9am.
