Rihanna and Mumford & Sons have been announced as headliners for next year's T in the Park festival.

The event, Scotland's biggest festival, is celebrating its 20th year in 2013 and will see singer Rihanna make her debut at Balado Park in Kinross-shire.

Mumford & Sons last performed at T when they headlined King Tut's Wah Wah Tent in 2010.

Other artists on the line-up already are Mercury Prize winners Alt-J and Nottingham singer/songwriter Jake Bugg.

Paloma Faith and Icelandic group Of Monsters And Men have also been announced.

Festival director Geoff Ellis says: "It seems like only yesterday that the first band took to the stage at Strathclyde Park for our inaugural T in the Park in 1994.

"Here we are in 2012 announcing two of the of the world's biggest and best acts to headline our 20th edition."

Last year's T in the Park was headlined by Snow Patrol, The Stone Roses and Kasabian.

After a sunny start to the 2012 festival, heavy rain fell turning much of the site into a mudbath.
