International super star and DJ Idris Elba has been added to the line-up for Shangri-La’s massive summer date at Cardiff castle on Saturday, 10 June.

Fisher, Arielle Free, Sorley and Little Fritter are all confirmed for what promises to be a hell of a party in the iconic Castle Grounds.

Whilst tickets for the date are now sold out, the official Shangri-La after party will take place at The Great Hall at Cardiff University Students' Union, with tickets available now.

An alumnus of the National Youth Music Theatre in London, Idris Elba is best known for roles including Stringer Bell in series The Wire, DCI John Luther in the BBC One series Luther, and Nelson Mandela in the biographical film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

However he is far from your average actor turned musician, having begun his career as a DJ long before finding fame on the big screen.

Whether spinning surprise sets in small east-London bars or thrilling thousands in the world’s top clubs, Idris' credibility as a DJ and selector is without question.

Alongside several roadblock appearances at Snowbombing, Ibiza Rocks & Glastonbury, he has established yearly residencies at top Ibiza party destination, and now, he will be bringing his skills to the iconic grounds of Cardiff Castle this summer.
