The two-day event, which kicks off on Friday September 7, will see revellers from far and wide gather to see world-class acts perform.
The announcement came as figures showed tourism in Berlin has boomed in recent months.
Last year 9.8 million people visited the German capital, and there were 22.4 million overnight stays, according to visitBerlin. This equates to a 9% rise in arrivals compared to 2010.
The city is now the third most popular travel destination in Europe¿, behind only London and Paris, according to the figures. There was an 11.8% rise in Canadian guests last year, and a 2.2% rise in visitors from North America.
The city's tourism numbers are likely to get another boost when the festival gets under way, with hordes of music lovers likely to be descending upon Berlin for the duration.
Metronomy, Paul Kalkbrenner and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs are also among the first acts revealed to be performing at the event.
SBTRKT and Major Lazer will also take to the stage, as will Icelandic band Sigur Ros, in what is their only scheduled performance in Germany in 2012. The band will showcase new songs from their eighth studio album, set for release later this year.
But as well as a star-studded musical line-up, the festival boasts the Art Village, where more than 60 national and international artists will present urban art, murals and sculptures.
Revellers will also be able to enjoy an art bazaar, booths and bars, before letting their hair down at the world's biggest Silent Arena After Show Party.
With more than 10,000 headphones, the event will allow festival-goers to boogie long after the final main stage gig, from midnight until 4am.
The festival is being held at Berlin's Tempelhof Airport.
