Snow Patrol and The Chemical Brothers are among the new acts announced for this year's sold-out Electric Picnic festival.

Rage Against The Machine had already been announced as one of the other headline acts for the annual event.

Other bands now added to the line-up include Picture This, Annie Mac, Lewis Capaldi, Foals, Ian Brown and Run the Jewels.

80s pop star Rick Astley and Irish singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow are some of the other acts announced for the festival today.

Festival organiser Melvin Benn says he's proud of the lineup.

He said: "Rage Against The Machine obviously everybody has known about... we're delighted Snow Patrol are back.

"Chemical Brothers, Picture This, Lewis Capaldi... effectively we've got five headliners there, just in themselves."

This year's festival is scheduled to take place between 4th and 6th September at Stradbally in Co Laois.

70,000 people are set to attend - an increase of 10,000 - with tickets for the weekend-long event already sold out.

Organisers are this year pledging an increased capacity for the main stage, with a new Mind & Body area also been promised at the festival site.
