Björk to headline Oxfordshire’s Wilderness Festival

17.02.15

Björk is set to headline Oxfordshire's small Wilderness Festival this year.

Taking place from August 6th-9th, this is the first UK date announced so far in support of Björk's 'Vulnicura'.

Joining her will be George Clinton – performing 'Return to the Mothership' with Parliament & Funkadelic – as well as Roisin Murphy, Nils Frahm, Hercules & Love Affair, and more.

There's all sorts of other things too – folk music, an organic cookery school, talks and debates, tarot card readers, and something described as "Bearded Kitten's Cricket Match".

You can check the musical lineup below, but you're advised to head over to the Wilderness website to see the frankly massive other programming that they have booked. Tickets cost £165.99 for the weekend (£80 if you're a young person, and for all the under-10s reading this, it'll cost a mere £5).

If you want more of a Björk fix, she'll be on Rinse FM this week, co-hosting a show with Tri Angle Records' Robin Carolan.
