Liam Gallagher's new band, Beady Eye, has been added to this year's Belsonic music festival.

The former Oasis front man said he could not wait for the August event at Custom House Square, Belfast.

"We've never played a festival in Belfast, so I can't wait for this Belsonic thing.

"It is about time I played an outdoor gig in the city, long overdue."

The band, made up of ex-Oasis members Gallagher, Gem Archer and Andy Bell, played to a packed Ulster Hall last month.

Gallagher added: "The people in Northern Ireland are always so up for it - they just get it. It's like they know something nobody else does."

American rockers 30 Seconds to Mars have also been added to the bill.

The MTV music award winners join acts including Primal Scream, Dizee Rascal and The Specials as headline acts.

Last year more than 40,000 people attended Belsonic, organisers said.

A cherished dream is elusive. It will be best to change gear, at least for the immediate future. Pursue a moneymaking opportunity with creative appeal. Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
