Former Fugees singer Lauryn Hill is set to headline next year's two-day Raggamuffin festival in Rotorua, it has been confirmed.

The singer, who performed at the same festival in 2010, tops a line-up that also includes Alborosie, J Boog, Fiji, The Green, Herbs, Katchafire, Common Kings, Gappy Ranks, Hot Rain, Monsta G, Tomorrow People, Swiss and Brownhill.

More acts will be added to the line-up before the festival, held at Rotorua International Stadium on February 1 and 2.

Festival Director Jackie Sanders said Raggamuffin delivered some of the hottest reggae artists in the world.

"We wanted to expand the festival's horizons in 2013 and present a taste of what's current and hot right now. Alborosie, for example, is one of the hottest reggae acts available worldwide."

Earlybird tickets are available now at www.raggamuffin.co.nz or on general release at www.ticketmaster.co.nz.
