At The Disco, Morcheeba, Tim Booth, Guillemots, Newton Faulkner, Heather Peace, Charlie Simpson, Admiral Fallow, Willy Mason, Jackie Leven and king of comedy show Jackass, Steve–O.
Speaking on the morning of the programme launch, promoter Dave Corbet said: “We're delighted to be joining forces with the Edinburgh Comedy Festival this year and are pleased to be in such good company.
“Music and Comedy have always been great bedfellows and from the feedback we've had previously, people attending the festival like to build an evening of entertainment so what better than to catch a comedy show AND attend a gig?
“We're announcing a great variety of acts so there will be something for everyone - roll on August!"
