Janelle Monáe, Stella Donnelly and Shame are also Japan-bound.

The first names for this year’s Fuji Rock festival have been announced - with The Cure, James Blake and Thom Yorke among them.

It’s not all certified sad lads, mind, as Janelle Monáe, Stella Donnelly, Shame and Mitski are also among those heading to Japan.

The Chemical Brothers, Sia, Death Cab For Cutie and Toro Y Moi are also included on the bill.

Fuji Rock takes place at Naeba Ski Resort in Yuzawa between 26th and 28th July.
