The support acts have been announced for Icelandic post-rockers Sigur Ros at Cornwall's Eden Sessions on Sunday 30th June.

The main stage line-up for the evening will include Daughter, Willy Mason, Dawn Chorus Ignites, and Californian psychedelic electropop outfit Mwahaha.

The Mediterranean Biome stage will feature Luke Sital Singh, Thomas J Speight, Saturday Sun, and Cornish folk singer West Barbary.

The acts join acclaimed Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós, whose Eden show is one of just a handful they will play in the UK this summer. Sigur Rós have recently released 'Brennisteinn', the first single from their forthcoming album 'Kveikur', which is due to drop on 17 June, two weeks before their Eden date.

This summer's Eden Sessions will their twelfth edition. The Sessions are famed not only for bringing top acts to Cornwall but also for their festival feel, with extra bands and entertainers playing around the site in the run-up to the main event.

Rita Broe, Strategic Marketing Director at the Eden Project, said, "This is a very exciting, eclectic support line-up which will sound great ahead of Sigur Rós taking to the stage for their headline set. Daughter have won a lot of fans in the past year and their excellent debut album broke the top 20 last month. We're very excited to have them at Eden on the cusp of what promises to be a big career. Willy Mason, who has toured with Ben Howard and Mumford & Sons, is one of the best contemporary country singers out there and we're delighted to welcome him to Eden."

Sigur Rós are one of the five headliners to be announced for the 2013 Eden Sessions, joining comic Eddie Izzard (Monday 3rd June), Kaiser Chiefs (29 June), The xx (Tuesday 2nd July), and Jessie J (Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th July) are the other acts confirmed to headline Sessions next year. Eden Sessions have become more like a one-day festival, with three stages and acts playing from early afternoon on each day.

Tickets for sessions are priced at £35. Every Sessions ticket includes entry to Eden on the day of the show or the day after.
