Manchester rock legends the Stone Roses will headline next year's Future Music Festival alongside fellow English acts the Prodigy, Bloc Party and Dizzee Rascal. Those acts, and many others, will hit Arena Joondalup on March 3.

The Stone Roses will celebrate 30 years since their formation during the Australian tour, which is part of a fully fledged comeback.

Ian Brown and his chums, who sold 220,000 tickets to three hometown concerts earlier this year, plan to unveil their third studio album next year. They released their self-titled debut in 1989 and Second Coming in 1994.

Dance-punk veterans the Prodigy return to Future to headline and curate the Warriors Dance Arena, a one-stage version of their successful touring event that will finally hit Australia after kicking off in Japan three years ago.

The turntables will get a thorough workout from international DJs Hardwell, Steve Aoki, Nervo and Zane Lowe, plus German jockeys Boys Noize will perform live.

Other artists heading to Perth for the festival next year include South Korean rapper Psy, New York rapper Azealia Banks, breakthrough British singer Rita Ora, chart-topping American pop outfit Fun. and Melbourne pop-rockers the Temper Trap.

Future Music Festival tickets go on sale on October 18 from Ticketmaster and the usual outlets.
