Jessie J and the Gipsy Kings have been announced as headline acts at this year's Henley Festival.

The pop singer will make her debut at the five-day event on 8 July, and the Latin music band on 11 July.

Organisers of the event, held between 8-12 July along the Thames in Berkshire, previously confirmed Lionel Richie as the 9 July headliner.

Jessie J said she was "so excited to be headlining the opening night of the Henley Festival this year".

On 10 July there will be a philharmonic celebration of American composer and pianist George Gershwin, entitled Who Got Rhythm?

The 12 July headline act has yet to be announced.
