The Horrors are the latest addition to the line-up for Rockaway Beach, the Essex five-piece will headline on Friday, hot on the heels from a spell supporting Depeche Mode during their Global Spirit tour. The Horrors’ fifth album, 'V', was released earlier this year.
Already confirmed as headlining Rockaway Beach are Wild Beasts (on Saturday) and Alabama 3 (on Sunday), the line-up also includes The Orb, British Sea Power and Peter Hook & The Light.
Speaking on the announcement that Wild Beasts are coming to an end, festival curator Ian Crowther commented, "like all Wild Beasts fans I am devastated to hear that the band is coming to an end - but I am equally excited to hear what the future holds for them. I'm thrilled that Rockaway Beach will be a central part of the band's farewell celebrations next year. We have a whole host of on-site activities planned in order to make this a fitting sendoff for one of this country's greatest bands, and the ultimate experience for all the fellow Boy Kings looking to hoot & howl one last time, including a late-night Wild Beasts deep cuts party, a Wild Beasts pub quiz and plenty, plenty more. Cheerio Chaps, Cheerio Goodbye."
