Body and Soul have announced more diverse acts to its already eclectic lineup.

Australian dance outfit RÜFÜS - fresh from stops at Coachella and Lollapalooze - are set to take on the Midnight Circus.

Experimental cellist Kelsey Lu, who's collaborated with everyone from Solange to Dev Hynes and Florence and the Machine, will bring her spellbinding set to this year's festival.

Also added to the bill is singer-songwriter Brooke Bentham, who's creating an online buzz at the moment with comparisons to Angel Olsen and Sharon Van Etten.
