Joining them will be the recently crowned ‘NME Godlike Geniuses’, Manic Street Preachers, a rare acoustic set by The Coral, Grinderman, The Breeders and Icelandic post-rock pioneers, Sigur Ros, who will also be playing at this year’s Uncut-sponsored Latitude Festival.

The festival will take place at Inveraray Castle in Argyll from August 29 to 31. Tickets for the bash go on sale this Friday (April 4) and start from £120 see for more information.
