Larmer Tree Festival has announced a new wave of acts, with Songhoy Blues, Let's Eat Grandma, and IDER among the latest additions.

Also announced for this year's fest are electronic experimenters Public Service Broadcasting, vibrant dance crew Ibibio Sound Machine, acclaimed musician/poet Akua Naru, London noisemakers Goat Girl, and feminist rapper and multimedia artist Miss Eaves, as well as The Barr Brothers, Barbarossa, Roo Panes, The Wandering Hearts, Hudson Taylor, Steve Knightley, Ryley Walker, Gina Williams, Fazerdaze, Amythyst Kiah, and Hlemma.

Artists already confirmed include Tune-Yards, First Aid Kit, Jake Bugg, Nadine Shah, and Susanne Sundfør.

As well as these new performers, Tune-Yards' Merrill Garbus has been confirmed as a special guest curator and the Saturday Main Stage lineup will be all-female for the first time.

"It's a great privilege to be involved in the curation of Larmer Tree's programming this year," says Garbus. "I was happy to include women artists, all of whom I know from past projects and admire for their unique and brilliant voices, laser-focused on a future that is seldom represented in festival programming. I hope audiences will enjoy these artists as much as I do.”

As well as the musical offerings, you'll be able to enjoy comedy, art, and performance bills as well as a decadent pampering sesh at the Larmer Spa (which includes everything from hot tubs to a sauna yurt).

Larmer Tree Festival takes place at Larmer Tree Gardens on the Wiltshire/Dorset border between 19-22 July. Tier two tickets are on sale now.
