The popular act, who celebrate the 30th anniversary of their seminal album Parallel Lines, are set to perform in the Uncut Arena on Sunday, July 20 together with their renowned leading-lady Debbie Harry.

Further additions to the festival's music line-up include British Sea Power and upcoming act Foats at the Obelisk Arena and Crystal Castles at the Sunrise Arena.

This announcement comes a day after the news that some of the UK's funniest comedians have also been added to the bill.

Mock The Week panellist Frankie Boyle is set to appear in the comedy tent, while controversial satirist Stewart Lee, fast-paced Lee Mack and energetic Russell Kane are all to return after successful performances last year.

The festival, which is held at Henham Park from July 17 to 20, has also announced that the Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre New Connections are to perform in the theatre arena.

The Royal Shakespeare Company will be performing a series of five minute mini epic plays in the theatre tent alongside a play from the National Theatre's New Connections series, an ambitious programme for young theatre writers.

Other additions to the festival line-up include John King, Raffaella Barker and Catherine O'Flynn to the literary arena and the international art exhibition postSecret in the music and film arena.
