Dublin artist CMAT, whose debut album, If My Wife New I'd Be Dead, flew to the top of the Irish charts recently.

Further line up announcements will be made for this year’s Body & Soul, which also features a programme of late-night parties and DJs, art installations, pop-ups and performances.

Since 2010, the festival has previously played host to Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Solange, St. Vincent, and Goldfrapp.
