Grammy Award winners The Roots and Juno Award winners Broken Social Scene have been added to the headliners at the Vancouver stop of the Virgin Mobile Music Festival.

Metric, Ben Harper, Sonic Youth and De La Soul, have also been added to the lineup of Virgin’s return to British Columbia on July 25 and 26, organizers announced on Thursday.

The newly announced acts will join a star-studded lineup that already features Canadian artists Our Lady Peace and K-OS.

The festival last took place in B.C. in 2007 at the University of B.C.’s Thunderbird Stadium.

It drew a paid attendance of more than 20,000 people over the two days.

The 2009 Virgin Festival will take place at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby.
