The former Oasis front man said he could not wait for the August event at Custom House Square, Belfast.

"We've never played a festival in Belfast, so I can`t wait for this Belsonic thing.

"It is about time I played an outdoor gig in the city, long overdue."

The band, made up of ex-Oasis members Liam, Gem Archer and Andy Bell, played to a packed Ulster Hall last month.

Gallagher added: "The people in Northern Ireland are always so up for it - they just get it. It's like they know something nobody else does."

American rockers 30 Seconds To Mars have also been added to the bill.

The MTV music award winners join acts including Primal Scream, Dizzee Rascal and The Specials as headline acts.

Last year more than 40,000 people attended Belsonic, organisers said.
