Simple Kid is among the slew of new acts confirmed to play this year's Electric Picnic.
While big names like Modest Mouse and Fionn Regan have already been confirmed for the Southern Comfort Crawdaddy Stage, new additions include Simple Kid, Duke Special, Rilo Kiley and Patrick Wolf.
Tennessee electropop-rockers How I Became The Bomb will also explode (boom boom) onstage, along with the sinister strummers Two Gallants. 'Cultural terrorists' Warlords of Pez also promise much musical mayhem, as do Aussie oddballs Architecture in Helsinki.
The Nokia Trends Lab Stage boasts its fair share of musical wonder too, with world music (DHOL Foundation), electronica (Kieran Hebden and S Reid, The Field, Oppenheimer), post-rock (65 Seconds of Static), psychedelia (The Aliens, The Little Ones), superior singer-songwriters (My Brightest Diamond) and, er, the Tropicana ad (Nouvelle Vague) all well-represented.
The full line-up for each of the stages therefore stands as:
