Norway’s Øya has announced new names for 2015, with the festival running from 11th-15th August.
March cover star Laura Marling leads the new additions following the release of her ‘Short Movie’ album.
She’ll be joined by thrashers Mastodon, funk outfit CHIC feat. Nile Rodgers and Calgary punks Viet Cong.
Shamir, Holly Herndon and Lianne La Havas have also been added to the bill, joining Ibeyi, Vince Staples and Tove Stryke.
These new names link up with Alt-J, Caribou and Florence + The Machine for 2015.
Øya tickets are available here.
