Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails and The National are among the artists announced for Primavera Sound 2014.

They join previously named acts Arcade Fire and Pixies on the bill for the Spanish festival.

Primavera Sound takes place in the Parc del Forum, Barcelona, between 29-31 May.

The new additions to the bill were announced through a special film called Line-up.

Other artists set to perform across the weekend include Disclosure, Chvrches, Kendrick Lamar, Warpaint and Foals.

Jagwar Ma, Odd Future rapper Earl Sweatshirt, Haim and Volcano Choir, who are fronted by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, are also on the line-up.

Arcade Fire will headline the Thursday (29 May), The National on Friday (30), and Nine Inch Nails on the closing day (31).

The rock outfit, fronted by Trent Razor, performed at this year's Grammy Awards alongside Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl but had television coverage of the show cut short by an advert.

Last year the event was headlined by Blur with acts like Jessie Ware and Solange Knowles, Hot Chip and Wu-Tang Clan performing across the festival.

The full line-up for this year's Primavera, which launched in 2001, can be found at the festival's website.
