Primavera Sound has announced its line-up for 2017 and it's staggeringly impressive.

The European festival - considered one of the greatest - will host the likes of Arcade Fire, The xx and Bon Iver in its 17th year.

Frank Ocean is also set to headline the Barcelona event which he'll add to his summer schedule alongside a 'London exclusive' set at Victoria Park's Lovebox. 

What were the best albums of 2016?

The full Primavera bill also includes the likes of Aphex Twin, Glass Animals, Grace Jones, Mac DeMarco, Sain Etienne and Van Morrison.

Arcade Fire are expected to release their follow-up to 2013 record Reflektor in 2017 while The xx will tour their hotly-anticipated third record I See You with a record-breaking run of dates at London's Brixton Academy (watch the video for "On Hold" here).
