Other acts due to appear across the weekend include Future Islands, Justice, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Depeche Mode, Fleet Foxes, Massive Attack and Real Estate.

DIY will, once again, be joining Mad Cool for the event as media partners, so keep your eyes peeled for news, previews and reports in the lead up to the festival.
