Bastille and Lower Than Atlantis headline the festival, now in its third year, which showcases the best emerging talent from the UK and beyond.
Bastille is the electronic vision of frontman Dan Smith, which started as a solo project and has grown into a band creating massive pop songs such as their breakthrough single Flaws.
Dan said: "We've had a really busy summer and been lucky enough to do about 30 festivals, including some small ones as well as the big ones like Reading.
"Underground is the last one we're doing, so it's like a full stop at the end of the summer for us.
"The big festivals are great but it's also nice performing at the smaller ones, playing places which aren't on the usual gig circuit so people who wouldn't usually get the chance to see us live can come along and see what we're about.
"I did all the songs from the comfort of my bedroom so the thought of taking them out on tour was a bit strange, but now I've got the band with me it seems much more bearable. I love it."
Lower Than Atlantis have threatened to dominate the UK rock scene for years and now seem set to make their charge. They will joined at the festival by Peace, Swim Deep and guitar pop band The Struts, as well as Canterbury, Don Broco,dubstep/rock poster boys Proxies and new Leeds band All Of This.
For the first time, the festival will this year also welcome international bands, including Australia's Last Dinosaurs and US rockers The Dangerous Summer.
Hotly-tipped Oxford singer songwriter Lewis Watson has also been added to the line-up, along with Morain, In Gratitude, Coastal Cities and Funeral Suits.
Wristbands for the free event will be given out on a first come, first served basis when doors open on Saturday and Sunday. For more information and to see a full line-up, visit Underground Festival
