The first acts have been announced ahead of next year's Latitude Festival in Suffolk with Irish indie band Two Door Cinema Club confirmed as headliners.
The trio have enjoyed several top 100 hits since forming in 2007, including "Something Good can Work" which peaked at number 56 in the UK singles chart.
Latitude festival will take place at Henham Park, near Southwold, in mid-July.
Speaking to the festival's official website, Two Door Cinema Club bassist, Kevin Baird, said that the band can't wait to take to the stage:
"It's really exciting for us to be headlining Latitude in 2014. Over the past 5 years we've made the progression from playing in the small tents to being close to the top of the bill on the main stage.
"Headlining a great festival like Latitude is obviously quite a big deal for us but we also feel like it is the next natural step. We're ready to headline. We're ready to smash it."
Other acts confirmed at the festival so far include singer-songwriter Billy Bragg and Californian rockers 'HAIM".
Organisers of the Latittude festival are claiming it was another great success.
The clear up operation is now underway at Henham Park in Suffolk after the final guests left this morning from the 3 day festival.
Thousands of people were there and the dry weather means the damage to the site was less than last year.
Around 35 thousand people are descending on Henham Park in Suffolk this weekend, for the Latitude festival.
And who can blame them? The sun's out, there is music, and plenty of other entertainment as well, but in this hot weather, festival-goers are being warned to take care.

Campers have begun pitching their tents for this year's Latitude Festival in Suffolk as temperatures continued to soar.
Up to 35,000 people are expected to attend the music and arts event at Henham Park, Southwold, over the weekend with day tickets for the Saturday now sold out.
The headliners are Kraftwerk-3D, Foals and Bloc Party and other performers include Bobby Womack, soloist classical trumpert player Alison Balsom and Eddie Izzard in the comedy arena.
Organisers have urged as many festival-goers as possible to use public transport, cycle or walk in order to minimise disruption on the roads but some tailbacks are expected.
Forecasts suggest the event should be rain-free - avoiding scenes of muddy car parks and fields experienced in previous years.
Thousands of people are expected to head to Suffolk this weekend for the 8th Lattitude Festival. This year there's a showcase of music, dance, theatre and comedy at Henham Park in Southwold. Big musical names include Richard Ashcroft, the frontman from the 90's group the Verve.

Latitude, which also includes comedy, theatre, poetry and literature stages, is now in its eighth year.
