Busta Rhymes has been announced as headliner at the One Love Peace Festival in July.

Other acts appearing at the reggae-themed event include Shaggy, Sean Paul, Gyptian and UK grime star Skepta.

The show, at London's Wembley Arena on 31 July, will be the first time Busta has played in the UK for three years.

The rapper said it would be a gig to remember, adding: "I can't wait to get back to the UK."

"It's been three years since I last performed here so I'm dying to tear the roof off Wembley Arena.

"When I'm done, you're gonna remember it for a long time to come. Get ready because it's about to go down."

The last One Love Peace Festival in London was 20 years ago, when it pulled in 25,000 fans.

It's being held again to mark 30 years since the death of Bob Marley and will feature special sets in tribute to the reggae legend.

His son, Ky Mani Marley, is also lined up to perform some of his dad's most famous hits.

Tickets are on sale now, priced from £35.
