Split Festival, Sunderland City centre music festival, curated by the Futureheads have added Simon & Oscar of Ocean Colour Scene (Acoustic) to perform their indie classics and Tom Vek to complete their super strong line up, which already boasts Dizzee Rascal, Maximo Park, The Cribs, Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), Smoove &Turrell, Frankie & The Heartstrings, Hyde & Beast and The Lake Poets.

Ross Millard, who curates the event, had this to say: "We've had a lot of people request the booking of Simon & Oscar of Ocean Colour Scene for this year's event. I think they'll bring some big, festival singalongs to Split this summer. Simon's voice is one of the most recognisable in modern music, so it's great that he'll be belting out the hits across Mowbray Park in August. It's also great to get Tom Vek up to Sunderland for Split - our audience appreciate artists like Tom who have retained a DIY ethic. Off the back of his new album I'm looking forward to seeing a great show. Stage 2 is going to be seriously hard-rocking at Split this year."

Festival organiser, Barry Hyde, added: "With forty bands, across three stages, the line-up this year is our strongest and most eclectic yet, it's the most crucial aspect of the whole festival and now it's all complete I can't wait to see it happen."
