Best Kept Secret Festival have announced an almost-carbon copy lineup for their 2021 edition, inviting the bulk of artists to return next June that were scheduled to appear this very weekend.

Headlining Friday and Sunday are The National and Massive Attack, with The Strokes sandwiched in between on the Saturday night as previously announced a couple of weeks back.  

Again, BADBADNOTGOOD, Belle & Sebastian, DIIV, Fontaines D.C., Dope Lemon, DJ Shadow, Jamie xx and Metronomy will return as the high-profile second tier, however, cancelled tours mean that the likes of Weyes Blood, Amyl & the Sniffers, and Maggie Rogers are no longer in mix. That said, there's plenty of time to bolster what is already a magnificent lineup from now to next June.

Check out the poster below for the full lineup:
