Chart-topping singer-songwriter Tom Odell and Madchester legends the Happy Mondays will headline this year’s Splendour festival.

The all-day event will be held at Nottingham’s Wollaton Park on Saturday, July 19.

Tom, pictured right, will be appearing in front of up to 20,000 people - his biggest headline performance to date. A Brits award-winner, he has racked up hit singles ‘Another Love’, ‘Grow Old With Me’, ‘I Know’, and ‘Hold Me’.

The Happy Mondays are set to continue their revival following critical acclaim for the reunited original line-up’s live shows. Famed for their party atmosphere, dancer Bez will lead the band through hits such as ‘Wrote for Luck’, ‘Step On’ and ‘Hallelujah’.

Scouting for Girls, Foxes and Ron Pope have been added to the main stage bill.

Across the park, The Boomtown Rats with lead singer Bob Geldof will headline the Confetti stage, where there will be sets from Reverend and the Makers and The Rifles.
