JLS and Lemar are to open the Isle Of Man Bay music festival in June.
The Brit-winning boy band and the Fame Academy star will headline the outdoor party at Nobles Park on June 18, with The Saturdays.
"We're very excited - it's our first year playing shows on that scale," said JLS' Jonathan 'JB' Gill.
Lemar, who is releasing his greatest hits album, added: "Being part of a line-up that includes JLS and The Saturdays is going to be great and will make for a really fun evening."
Britain's Got Talent winners Diversity will perform at the tented stage on June 19, joined by Spandau Ballet, Calvin Harris, The Feeling and DJ Ironik.
Gary Kemp from Spandau Ballet said: "Calvin Harris and The Feeling will be hard acts to follow but following our recent tour dates, we know that we will be putting on an amazing show for fans old and new."
Closing the three-day festival will be the eagerly awaited X Factor Meets Britain's Got Talent, where finalists from each show - including Olly Murs, Leon Jackson, Diversity, George Sampson and Stavros Flatley - perform.
The evening will feature Rick Astley, Belinda Carlisle, Boy George and Kim Wilde, who are taking to the stage to bring a nostalgic pop-filled end to the event.
Tickets for the festival are available now.
