Plan B and Jessie J are to headline the Sound Island Festival in Thanet this summer, we can exclusively reveal.
The stars will be joined by singers Rita Ora (pictured right), James Arthur, Lawson and Union J for the two-day festival at Quex Park, in Birchington, in July.
Rapper Plan B - real name Ben Drew - will headline on Saturday, July 27.
The 29-year-old singer rocketed to fame after his most successful album to date, The Defamation of Strickland Banks, went straight to number one in 2010.
Other acts to perform alongside the She Said singer on the Saturday will include Rita Ora, whose debut album Ora reached number one last year, and X Factor winner James Arthur.
Singer Jessie J, 24, will then headline the festival on Sunday, July 28.
The Do It Like A Dude star, who is also known for her role as a judge on the BBC talent show The Voice, has a music style mixing soul vocals with contemporary R&B music.
Concert-goers on the Sunday will also be treated to performances by boy band Lawson, who rose to prominence supporting The Wanted, and X Factor semi-finalists Union J.
Sound Island Festival spokesman Dion Clements said: "Plan B and Jessie are both in such demand we're thrilled they're coming to headline the Sound Island Festival this year, it's a great coup for fans of the artistes and Sound Island audiences in general.
"With guest appearances by Rita Ora, James Arthur, Lawson, Union J, and of course with more details of additional performers to be announced, Sound Island Festival 2013 is set to be the biggest and best yet!"
