Michael Kiwanuka, Alicia Keys, George Benson to perform...

Diana Ross will play this year's North Sea Jazz Festival.

The Rotterdam event has grown to become the world's biggest in-door festival, and this summer looks to be a historic edition.

Continuing to broaden, North Sea Jazz Festival will welcome a set from Motown star and all-round icon Diana Ross.

Elsewhere, John Legend will appear at the event, joined by Jill Scott, George Benson, and Michael Kiwanuka.

On a more straight-ahead jazz tip Archie Shepp will play a special John Coltrane tribute set, Branford Marsalis will perform, while Jordan Rakei, Nubya Garcia, Shabaka And The Ancestors, and the legendary Herbie Hancock have been added to the bill.

Early bird tickets have sold out. Day tickets go on sale from February 1st.

North Sea Jazz Festival runs between July 10th - 12th.
