Doves have been added to the line-up of this year's V Festival.

The Mancunian trio - who released fourth album Kingdom Of Rust last year - will play the 4 Music stage at the two-site event in August.

Also joining the bill is chart-topping star Calvin Harris, whose successes have included Dance Wiv Me and I'm Not Alone.

The V Festival, sponsored by Virgin Media, has already announced acts such as Kasabian, Kings Of Leon, Prodigy and Cheryl Cole are lined up to play the event.

It is staged in Weston Park, Staffordshire, and Chelmsford on August 21 and 22, with the acts rotating between the two venues.

Festival director Bob Angus said: "We're hugely excited to add Doves and Calvin Harris to the bill."

The event is now in its 15th year. Tickets for the festival go on sale at 9am on Friday March 5 with details of outlets at
