Twin Atlantic have been announced as a headliner for Ullapool's sold out Loopallu music festival.

The band joins The Undertones, Shed Seven, Alabama 3, Public Service Broadcasting, Hunter and the Bear, Neon Waltz and Vigo Thieves.

DJ Mark Radcliffe is also taking his new band The Foes to the festival, which takes place on 26-27 September.

For its 10th anniversary year, the festival will also feature a new event called Literally Literary.

Organised by Ullapool Book Festival, its guest speakers include Christopher Brookmyre, Mairi Hedderwick, Doug Johnstone, Vic Galloway and Aidan Moffat.

Barry McKenna, of Twin Atlantic, said: "We've had a pretty special relationship with the Highlands since the very start of our band and over the years have enjoyed some of our most momentous and defining gigs there.

"So we're over the moon to say we will be continuing this tradition by playing Loopallu this year."
