Techno innovator Laurent Garnier will also take to the decks on Sunday joined by Lord of the Isles giving fans of electronic music the event of the summer.

Offering fans the very best in legendary and cutting-edge talent, The Electric Frog and Pressure Riverside Festival, which takes place on May 3 and 4, have already confirmed a dynamic line-up including Jamie Jones, Andrew Weatherall, Derrick Carter, Derrick May, Felix Da Housecat, Moritz Von Oswald, DJ Sneak, Slam, Sunday Circus, Tiga, Visionquest, Vitalic (live).

Since the creation of the band Soulwax in 1995, David and Stephen Dewaele's 2ManyDJs have consistently pushed boundaries into new and innovative territory.

In 2011, they tore up the rulebook with the creation of Radio Soulwax, a touring live event, an app and website.

The ultimate synthesis of sound and vision, it produced 24 one hour mixes with accompanying visuals based on the artwork of the original records used within the mix. The app has had over 600k downloads and 300k sales to date.

Throughout their career 2ManyDJs have led the way into unchartered territory and remained relevant and exciting to every generation that discovers them. Their new collaboration with LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy named the Despacio project sees them create parties in interesting locations on a state of the art hi-fi sound system.

Tireless in his enthusiasm, Laurent Garnier is an artist on the move. Bursting with new ideas and projects, Laurent Garnier juggles DJ-ing, radio shows and producing. His first big hits (Acid Eiffel and Wake Up), both soundtracks to the explosion of dance music in France, have paved the way for a series of albums that are both elaborate and multi-faceted. In the space of five celebrated albums, Laurent Garnier has embarked upon a remarkable journey going back to the creation of his label in 1994 with Eric Morand which brought to the fore producers such as as Mr Oizo, St Germain, Jori Hulkkonen, AlexKid and Scan X.

Playing an exclusive live set at the festival is Lord of the Isles. Creating a monumental buzz of late, from modest beginnings, releasing on relatively unknown labels like Adult Contemporary, Catune and Ene - the producer's name has gone from a whisper to a bang, catching the attention of the Phonica, Unthank and Shevchenko imprints more recently. His hypnotic brand of disco and boogie-tinged house has found favour among the listening public as well, furthering his reputation and placing his releases in high demand.

Now increased to a two day event, the outdoor music festival takes place on the grounds of the iconic Riverside Museum and The Tall Ship, on the banks of the River Clyde over the May Bank Holiday weekend, May 3 and 4, from 4pm to 11pm. The event will feature two covered stages, street food, a variety of bars and vintage stalls bringing together a real carnival atmosphere.

Electric Frog and Pressure Festival Promoter Dave Clarke, said: "We're hugely excited to announce 2ManyDJ's, Laurent Garnier and Lord of the Isles, which are great additions to the line-up at the Electric Frog and Pressure Riverside Festival. The festival is bringing some of the best names in the world of electronic music to Glasgow and it's shaping up to be our best Electric Frog and Pressure collaboration yet!"
