The Cribs, The Young Knives, British Sea Power and The Rascals are among the first names confirmed for the inaugural Zoo Thousand festival at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent.

Roni Size/Reprazent, Athlete, Funeral For A Friend, Lethal Bizzle, Hadouken!, Does It Offend You Yeah? and Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip are also on the bill for the new weekender, which takes place from 4-6 July.

Other live acts who will be playing at the stunning safari park include Chas N Dave, Mitchell Brothers, Friendly Fires, The Whip, Fucked Up, Wiley, Rumble Strips and Little Man Tate.

The festival will also boast a huge DJ bill including Pendulum, Goldie, Andy C, Fabio, Switch, Bloc Party, Stanton Warriors and Evil 9.

Zoo Thousand director Matt Dice commented: “It has been a real triumph for us to secure such great artists for the first Zoo Thousand music festival.

“We look forward to welcoming the best names in live music to our beautiful site at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park for a weekend of fun.”

The festival is geared for up to 20,000 revellers with onsite camping making it one of the largest music festivals in the South East.

Port Lymphe Wild Animal Park is run by registered charity The Aspinall Foundation and the festival is making a donation to the Foundation to help pay for the upkeep of the animals and their enclosures.

A car-sharing scheme will be in place to minimise the number of visitors arriving by vehicle, and there will be a tree-planting initiative to take part in.

While the animals will be kept at a safe distance from the crowds and artists in the 600-acre site, festival-goers will be able to visit the Animal Park for a reduced price, which is home to the biggest gorillarium in the world and the largest breeding herd of black rhino outside Africa, as well as tigers, elephants and many endangered species.

There will even be the opportunity to take the African Experience Safari, where giraffes, rhinos, wildebeest, ostrich and antelope roam free. More acts are still to be announced, but the line up so far is as follows:
