Björk will bring her new album to the UK festival circuit this summer, headlining the annual Oxford festival Wilderness. Following news of her New York dates, the musician will showcase music from Vulnicura at the boutique event.
Taking place from 6 – 9 August at Cornbury Park in Oxfordshire, the Friday night slot is Björk’s first confirmed headline set at a UK festival since she unveiled her eighth album in January. Ahead of this performance, she will play two shows at New York’s Carnegie Hall and a further four at the City Center throughout March and April this year.
Meanwhile, topping the bill at the 2015 festival is singer-songwriter Ben Howard, who will close the event on the Sunday, and funk legend George Clinton, who is set to perform with Parliament and Funkadelic on Saturday.
Róisín Murphy, Nick Mulvey, Caravan Palace and Hercules and Love Affair have also been confirmed, as well as London born musician, poet and pianist Benjamin Clementine, electro experimentalists Brandt Bauer Frick Ensemble and classical/electronic musician Nils Frahm.
