Festival of House, the new two-day Scottish music festival set to take place in Angus this June, has announced additional acts.

Leftfield, who have been at the cutting edge of dance music since the 1990s, have been confirmed as performing at the event. Originator Neil Barnes will bring a gig of truly enormous mainstream-invading distinction, along with new album Alternative Light Source, the first in 16 years.

Also confirmed for the festival is Rudimental, who have been named by the BBC as the festival band of the summer, who will perform a DJ set.

Other acts revealed in the line-up are Hacienda Classical, Dixon, James Zabiela, Erol Alkan, Eats Everything, Bicep, The Cuban Brothers, Harri & Domenic, Jasper James, Mike Pickering, Finitribe and Tom Simpson.

The acts join those already announced, which includes festival headliners Underworld.

Speaking about the announcement, Festival Director Craig Blyth said: “We are delighted to be announcing these new additions who are joining the Festival of House party at Panmure Estate this summer. Everyone has been working hard behind the scenes to secure an eclectic lineup with the very highest calibre of acts. We couldn’t be happier about Leftfield, the live show is on another level, and Hacienda Classical, which we have secured as a Scottish festival exclusive, will be a ‘were you there’ moment for sure.”

The festival will take place on Friday and Saturday, June 10 and 11, at the Panmure Estate in Angus. Organisers are expecting 15,000 fans for the inaugural year. A dedicated campsite for 6500 fans will be in place. Further details can be found at www.festivalofhouse.co.uk.
