Digitalism have been filling dancefloors since 2004, and are sure to get the crowds going at the three-day long festival.

The pair, who are at home DJing as much as they are performing live, cross over genres with their mix of indie and electronic tunes.

They are in good company, with festival organisers also managing to get The Musics’ Robs Harvey and The Streets’ Mike Skinner on board, to perform their collaborative project The D.O.T.

The duo’s album combines their respective influences that is sure to get the crowds bouncing.

On top of that, Welsh trio The Joy Formidable are also joining the line-up.

They have just returned from a stint touring with Muse and are set to head out to the States, with their set at Standon Calling marking their return to the UK.
