Hove does a hip and a hop: Jadakiss headlines

New York rapper Jadakiss heads up five new hip-hop additions to Hove Festival's line-up.

The 90s hip-hop legend, member of The LOX, is set to hit the Amphitheatre Stage on the Monday (22 June) where he will be joined by Bronx rapper Fat Joe and one of LA's best newcomers U-N-I.

On the following day (23 June), the Marquee Stage is set to welcome Necro, creator of the new Death Rap genre, whilst hip-hop returns to the Amphitheatre on the Wednesday (24 June) with rap-veteran Q-Tip also announced to make his presence felt.

The Norwegian festival is once again putting on a mighty bash for European punters with Faith No More, The Killers and Franz Ferdinand all headlining alongside The Prodigy and Slipknot.

The Ting Tings, Eagles of Death Metal, Fleet Foxes and many more top names are on the bill for Hove Festival which takes place on Tromoya Island just off the Norwegian coast from the city of Arendal from 22 – 25 June.
