DJ Shadow and U.N.K.L.E are among the acts to be announced as part of a dance-themed Saturday for this year’s Wireless Festival on July 3, 2010.

They will be joined by LCD Soundsystem, 2manydjs Live and The Big Pink for the electric event.

Now in its sixth consecutive year, Saturday at Wireless – sponsored by Barclaycard – has traditionally been the dance day.

Both 2manydj’s and LCD Soundsystem have played seminal sets at Wireless in previous years and now they are back, bigger and better than ever before, to co-headline the main stage.

American producer James Murphy is the man behind disco-punk electronica outfit LCD Soundsystem.

Continuously praised by the media and music fans alike, LCD Soundsystem have notched up two Grammy award nominations and have a sold out UK tour ahead of them in April and a new album in May.

Fellow American producer, DJ Shadow has taken a break from touring during 2009, but he’s coming back to wow the crowds as headlner of the second stage.

This will also be home to a special set from his fellow Mo’Wax label mates U.N.K.L.E. Their highly -anticipated fifth studio album, Where Did The Night Fall, is released on May 10.

The Big Pink are the recent NME Award winners for Best Track (for single Dominoes) and will make their Wireless debut on the Saturday.

Also announced for the Friday of the Festival – along with Pink! and The Ting Tings – are Plan B, Daisy Dares You and Bowling For Soup.

Jay-Z, Lily Allen and Mr Hudson have also bee confirmed for the Sunday.
