Speaking about the announcement, festival director Craig Blyth said:
'We are really pleased to be announcing this year's Carnival Fifty Six line up. Mark Ronson is in a class of his own, few artists match the energy of Rudimental live and Clean Bandit are one of the biggest acts today. We're delighted to have them join us as headliners in Dundee on a bill which has real depth and quality.'
More acts are still to be announced, with over 100 artists expected across five stages.
