Other additions include Moncrieff, Hermitage Green, Lea Heart, Hudson Taylor, Le Boom, Kneecap and Gemma Dunleavy.

Additions to the comedy line-up include Vogue Williams and Joanne McNally of the My Therapist Ghosted Me podcast, and a set from The 2 Johnnies.

This year's weekend headliners include Arctic Monkeys, Tame Impala and Megan Thee Stallion, along with home-grown favourites Snow Patrol, Picture This and Dermot Kennedy.

Some 70,000 revellers are set to make their way to Laois for the festival, which runs from Friday, September 2 to Sunday, September 4.
