ELBOW have been confirmed as the headline act at a major UK festival.

The Mercury Prize winning Bury rockers will headline the Friday night at Y Not Festival at Pikehall, Derbyshire, this July.

Joining them for the other headline slots are Oxford math rock maestros Foals and Northern Irish indie outfit Two Door Cinema Club.

Acts also confirmed so far for this year's festival include, Franz Ferdinand, Wolf Alice, You Me At Six, Happy Mondays and Don Broco.

Last year saw Elbow complete a UK and European arena tour before heading back into the studio to record their eighth studio album, due for release later this year.

2018 also saw the band pick up an Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically for their track Magnificent (She Says), from their 2017 outing Little Friction.

The accolade added to an already impressive haul by Elbow including the 2001 and 2008 Mercury Prizes, and the Brit Award for Best British Band in 2012.

Elbow recently announced three huge outdoor UK gigs at The Canons Marsh Amphitheatre in Bristol, on June 29; The Piece Hall in Halifax, West Yorkshire, on June 30; and Castlefield Bown in Manchester, on July 9.
