Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds will headline Calling Festival.
The one-day event will take place on Clapham Common in London on Saturday July 4 with Ryan Adams, The Hives and Echo and the Bunnymen also confirmed to perform.
Speaking about the booking, Live Nation's Vice President of Promotions Toby Leighton-Pope said: "We're so pleased with the Calling Festival 2015 bill. Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds will be incredible and we're so happy to welcome the fantastic Ryan Adams, The Hives and Echo and the Bunnymen. This year is going to be huge and we look forward to seeing the crowds back in Clapham this summer."
The band will perform their first outdoor headline set at the multi-stage festival four months after the release of their eagerly anticipated second album, 'Chasing Yesterday', which will be available from March 2.
In October, the 47-year-old performer sold out his six-date spring tour - which will see him visit Belfast, Dublin, Nottingham, Glasgow, and Manchester before end in London on March 10 - in just 10 minutes.
Previous headliners of the annual event include The Who, Eric Clapton, Bon Jovi and The Killers, with more than 80,000 music-lovers flocking to the festival in south west London last year to witness performances from Stevie Wonder and Aerosmith.
Tickets for Calling Festival go on sale at 9am on Friday 6 February and are priced at £57.50 plus booking fee.
