The Joy Formidable, Digitalism and more have confirmed their involvement with this summer's instalment of Standon Calling.

Held in Hertfordshire, Standon Calling has withstood some troubled times of late. However the team have stuck together, and this year's event promises to find the festival going back to its roots.

Headliners include Daisy Age hip hop icons De La Soul, Southampton rockers Band of Skulls and Bastille, with the latter toasting the chart topping success of their debut album.

Now Standon Calling has announced another batch of acts, matching electro titans to garage rock newcomers. Digitalism are set to appear at Standon Calling, with Welsh rockers The Joy Formidable also due to take part.

Recently unveiling their second album, the trio have honed their live show to a fine degree with Dave Grohl being so impressed that he asked the band to support Foo Fighters on American dates last year.

Other new additions include The D.O.T. which boasts a partnership between The Music's Rob Harvey and Mike Skinner. Pairing up last year, the pair have completed work on their debut album which is a typically self-deprecating look at life in 2K13 Britain.

Elsewhere, Heavenly endorsed psychedelic troupe TOY will drop past, while DJ Yoda is set to rock the decks.

Tickets are on sale now.

Standon Calling runs between August 2nd - 4th.
