British electronic music group Clean Bandit are the latest and last act to be announced for the Forest Live concert series at Thetford Forest.
They will be performing at High Lodge on Sunday, July 2.
Formed in Cambridge in 2008, the group smashed onto the scene in 2014 with the number one hit Rather Be, featuring Jess Glynne.
The track took the band into the international mainstream and they won a Grammy Award for Best Dance recording.
Following on from this success, 2016 saw the release of two massive hit singles, Tears, featuring Louisa Johnson, and Rockabye, featuring Sean Paul and Anne-Marie - which was number one in the UK official singles chart for nine consecutive weeks, the longest reign by a UK artist since 1994.
