The Killers to headline Tennent's Vital festival

The Killers are set to headline this year's Tennent's Vital festival.

The event is taking place at Belfast's Boucher Playing Fields later this year and the US group are due to perform on August 21.

They will be supported by Bastille on the bill and Sarah Shimmons, beer marketing manager for Tennent’s Northern Ireland, commented:

"The Killers are undoubtedly one of the biggest bands in the world with a global reputation for their amazing live shows. They’ll be joined on the bill by Bastille, who have enjoyed massive breakthrough success in the past year and are one of the most exciting new acts around right now.”

She added: "Tennent’s Vital brings top international and homegrown talent to the heart of Belfast and since its return in 2011, it has well and truly cemented its place as a highlight of Northern Ireland’s music calendar. We’re delighted that our partners at MCD have once again secured some incredible acts for the Tennent’s Vital bill – it’s already shaping up to be a brilliant event and we can’t wait to see you there!”

Details of a second night are due to be announced soon.
