Kasabian and The Gossip have been confirmed as acts for the upcoming Optimus Alive! festival.

The bands will be joining headline act Pearl Jam at the festival to be held between July 8 and 10 at Passeio Marítimo de Alges.

Lead singer of The Gossip, Beth Ditto, is as well known for posing naked for the front cover of a British music magazine and her outlandish stage performances as for the band’s catchy songs, while Kasabian shot to fame with their first album Kasabian in 2004.
