SEOUL, April 20 (Yonhap) -- Icelandic rock band Sigur Ros and Grammy-nominated American singer Gallant will perform at South Korea's Jisan Valley Rock festival this year, organizers said Thursday.

CJ E&M announced its second list of foreign artists who will play at the three-day rock event from July 28. The two others were British band The Amazons and American synth-pop singer Goldroom.

The company also announced four more local musicians: singer-songwriter Lee Juck, and rock bands Glen Check, Jannabi and The Koxx.

Formed in 1994, Sigur Ros, often labeled a "post rock" band, is famed for its incorporation of classical and minimalistic aesthetics. The trio has performed twice in South Korea and has a dedicated, solid fan base here.

R&B artist Gallant released his debut studio album Ology in April 2016 and has received critical acclaim for his songwriting and singing. The album was nominated for a Grammy award in February for best urban contemporary album of 2016.

CJ E&M earlier this month announced the first batch of the all-star lineup for this year's event, including Gorillaz and Grammy-winning singer Lorde.
