It will be celebrating its sixth year of bringing world class acts to the city.

The huge event will kick off on Friday 16 August with dance act Basement Jaxx.

Brett Anderson and co will perform on Saturday 24 August, just months after releasing their first album in 11 years.

Fans will get the chance to see folk act The Lumineers who have become a global sensation.

The band are currently on a sold-out European tour.

Pop and folk enthusiasts are also set to enjoy the line up, with Jake Bugg and Ben Howard at the top of the bill on 23 and 17 August respectively.

Meanwhile the August bank holiday will be a dance party, with Steve Angello, who has previously worked with chart toppers Swedish House Mafia.

Metal band Bullet For My Valentine will close the event on 26 August, when they will be joined by Sheffield-based metallers Bring Me The Horizon.

The big names for this year's festival have been announced, however a number of support acts are expected to be unveiled in the run up to the event.
