He might hail from the wrong side of the Pennines but rock ‘n’ roll star Liam Gallagher can still expect a raucous reception when he plays this summer’s Leeds Festival.

The former Oasis frontman was today added to the bill for the August Bank Holiday weekend event.

Vince Staples, Goldie, Anne-Marie, Declan McKenna, The Orwells and Black Honey are among dozens of other newly-confirmed acts.

Also joining the line-up are Mura Masa, Marika Hackman, Japandroids, Pumarosa, Bishop Briggs and Arcane Roots.

The annual festival’s previously announced headliners are Kasabian, Muse and Eminem.
