The latest selection of artists to join the Field Day line-up for June's festival sees their eclectic and diverse run of bookings continue. Manchester soul-rap-jazz hybrid IAMDDB tops the new additions to this year's festival – the BBC Sound of 2018 runner-up is joined by Amsterdam house selector Young Marco, a back-to-back set from techno producers Objekt and Batu, and the baroque pop of LA songwriter Moses Sumney.

The new additions join a line-up headed by exclusive sets from soul icon Erykah Badu and Fever Ray, the solo project from The Knife's Karin Dreijer. The bill also features hip-hop from Loyle Carner, Princess Nokia, Madlib and Earl Sweatshirt; a strong international element including Malian vocalist Oumou Sangaré, Japanese producer Cornelius and Ethiopian synth pioneer Hailu Mergia; and live sets from three of the most intriguing electronic composers and producers of recent times – Floating Points, Four Tet and Nils Frahm. Read the full line-up so far below.

2018 will be Field Day's first outing at its new location of Brockwell Park in south London; the festival's former home of Victoria Park will play host to the new All Points East festival this May and June. Field Day takes place at Brockwell Park, 1-2 Jun; tickets are on sale now via
