Haunting English trio Daughter open the run, followed by the emotive rock of “High Hopes” quartet, Kodaline.

Next up is atmospheric singer-songwriter Agnes Obel and crazy Aussie collective The Cat Empire, before Kelis brings all the boys to the yard with her chart-topping “Milkshake”.

Bastille, the biggest-selling new British act of 2013, will perform tracks from their hit debut album Bad Blood on 15 July, followed by Glaswegian rock group Franz Ferdinand, synthpop trio Chvrches, man of the moment Sam Smith and rising electro stars Clean Bandit.

Yukimi Nagano and her Swedish school friends headline the grand finale as dance act Little Dragon.
