Snoop Dogg has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and has had 15 top 20 singles in the UK.

Acts including Warpaint and BBC Sound of 2014 winner Sam Smith were confirmed for the event in the week leading up to the main announcement.

Radio 1's Annie Mac will play on the main stage on the same night as Snoop Dogg.

Her set follows a special guest slot which has not yet been confirmed.
