They are currently touring the world, promoting their album Oczy Mlody.

The Lips’ 14th studio album finds them following their creative muse three decades into a fantastical journey that remains ever predictably unpredictable.

Other acts already announced for the festival include: The Stunning with special guests The Academic; Madness; Caribou; Gavin James; Walking on Cars; and Kodaline.

Tickets for both Walking on Cars and Kodaline have already sold out.
