Handpicked by DJ and broadcaster Huw Stephens, the Lake Stage bill offers festival goers the opportunity to see the stars of the future in an intimate environment.

Previous artists who have graced the stage include The xx, James Blake and Bombay Bicycle Club.

This year the Lake Stage welcomes hip-hop favourite Loyle Carner, whose sensitive rap has positioned him at the forefront of modern UK hip-hop, and fellow BBC Sound of 2016 soloist Billie Marten.

Also announced to perform on the Lake Stage are The Big Moon, Fickle Friends, Estrons and many more exciting acts.
