Shaun, Bez and the boys will entertain fans during the event, which will take place under the Harland and Wolff cranes at T13 on 1 and 2 June, coinciding with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee weekend.

The Happy Mondays, who have recently reformed their original line up, have not played in Belfast for more than 20 years.

They will join other acts including Ghostpoet, Factor Floor and legendary reggae producer Lee 'Scratch' Perry for the two day event under the Harland and Wolff cranes.

Promoters Hydroponic Music say more acts will be announced, and founder and resident DJ Michael McKeown added: "The line-up will be fantastic, the venue is out of this world and the setting is simply world class."

Festival tickets will be exclusively available at the launch gig on 31 March when local bands including Pocket Billiards and Katie and the Carnival will take to the stage amid DJ sets, continental food markets and fire breathers.

"Our launch gig on 31 March will provide music fans with the opportunity to celebrate the official launch of Titanic Belfast, get a taste of what Titanic Lockdown will deliver and snap up advance tickets for what promises to be the biggest party weekend of the year in June," said Michael.

Tickets for Titanic Lockdown will go on general release on 2 April.
