Depeche Mode and Kings Of Leon are set to headline next summer's instalment of Optimus Alive.
Held in Lisbon, Optimus Alive is rapidly emerging as one of the pre-eminent summer festivals on the continent. Following a successful summer, plans are already under way for the next instalment of the Portuguese event.
Organisers have stepped in to announce two headline acts, with Depeche Mode and Kings of Leon set to perform at the Lisbon based event. Depeche Mode, of course, are working on new material with the band set to release an album in 2013.
Currently in the studio, the English synth-pop legends will match new material to those classic hits at Optimus Alive. Kings of Leon, meanwhile, are emerging from the studio and have already confirmed a handful of European festival appearances.
Set to play headline slots, Depeche Mode and Kings Of Leon will be joined by Two Door Cinema Club. The Northern Irish group just get bigger and bigger, with second album 'Beacon' crashing into the Top Ten earlier this year.
Heading back out on the road, the Bangor trio have sold out the largest venues of their career to date. Planning a trip to Lisbon next summer, Two Door Cinema Club are set to be joined by a typically vast, diverse line up. Oh, and as if that wasn't enough... the camping site is 4* quality and boasts hot showers, a swimming pool and a free shuttle service back and forth to the festival.
Optimus Alive runs between July 12th - 14th.
