It is one of the star attractions at an event which features five stages and a variety of music styles, and up to 10,000 people are expected to attend.

Award-winning rock band Athlete top the bill on Friday April 29, while The Divine Comedy from Northern Ireland round off the event on Sunday May 1.

A spokesman for the promoters said: "With a host of local talent spread across all five stages and an indoor dance arena, this promises to be the stand-out event of the year."

Razorlight are primarily known in the UK, having topped the charts with the 2006 single America. The band have toured in Europe, Australia and America.

On May 31 last year, The Divine Comedy released their 10th album, Bang Goes The Knighthood. It charted at number 20 in the first week of release. The band is led by singer Neil Hannon.

At this year's event, more than 80 outfits will take to the stage, there will be an overnight "silent disco", continental market, beer festival and funfair as well as camping space.

This is the third year of the festival, which comes near the start of the outdoor music season.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, with day passes costing £40 or weekend packages with camping for £99.
