Foals.

Indie rock band Foals and dance phenomenon Disclosure will be playing as co-headliners on an as-yet-unconfirmed night of the three-day event.

Festival boss Melvin Benn said: “I couldn’t be more excited about this announcement. A co-headline with two of the most promising British acts out there.

“Foals’ secret set [at the festival] last year was a highlight for me, as I’m sure their debut headline slot will be, coupled with the phenomenal Disclosure – we’re very proud to be able to give these acts the recognition they deserve.”
