Ross Millard, the electric guitar player from the band The Futureheads, is to curate this year's Split Festival in Sunderland.

The musician has already signed up Brooklyn-based The Drums, The Charlatans, local boys Frankie and the Heartstrings and Ganglians.

In what is seems to be a Futureheads-influenced festival, Dave Hyde, who plays the drums in the band, will be showcasing his new pet project Hyde & Beast.

Speaking to NME about the event, Millard said that he was excited to have secured a big band like The Drums. He saw it as a scoop for Sunderland.

He added: "At the end of the Sunday when everyone is getting a little bit emotional and a little bit carried away with themselves, on come the Charlatans to play you through a greatest hits set and it couldn't really be better."

The two-day music festival runs from September 18th to 19th and will be held at the Ashbrooke Sports Club.
