MTV have announced the line-up for its Titanic Sounds concert in Belfast.

Olly Murs, Rizzle Kicks and Sean Paul will perform against the backdrop of the Harland and Wolff slipways in April.

Although the 13 April event is free, tickets for it will have a £5 booking fee applied to them and will go on sale on 12 March through Ticketmaster.

In November, the MTV Europe Music Awards were held at the Odyssey in Belfast.

Olly Murs said he was looking forward to the concert.

"I cant wait to perform at MTV presents Titanic Sounds this April," he said.

"I will be bringing my 9-piece band. I always love coming to Belfast and it will be a great way to commemorate 100 years since the Titanic was built there."

One other performer will be announced closer to the date of the concert.

The MTV concert is just one event during a three-week festival marking the centenary of the launch and sinking of the Titanic.

The festival will run from 31 March to 22 April.
