TORONTO -- The Smashing Pumpkins and Bjork are set to headline the second annual Virgin Festival in Toronto this September, organizers said Thursday.

The pop music festival, sponsored by Richard Branson's Virgin Group, also will feature the Killers, Interpol, Paolo Nutini, Amy Winehouse, Tokyo Police Club and Jamie T over two days and three concert stages on Toronto Island.

Virgin will make additional announcements in the coming weeks. After the inaugural Virgin Festival in Toronto last summer, the British-based festival is planning a Vancouver edition May 20-21 featuring My Chemical Romance and Billy Talent, followed by the Toronto concerts Sept. 8-9.
