The Human League – Friday 13 July

Electro-pioneers and influential ground-breakers, The Human League are so credible it’s incredible. In fact they’re probably more highly regarded now than they were in 1981 when they released their landmark album Dare. With four Top 10 albums and eight Top 10 singles in the UK as well as two US Number 1 singles and over 30 million records sold worldwide; they are a sublimely peculiar and heady cocktail of pop, dance, glamour and electronics.

Supporting The Human League, will be Blancmange. The British electronic band mix synthesizers and surrealism to create epic synthpop. They first broke in the early 80s with ground-breaking singles “I Can’t Explain”, “Feel Me”, “Living on the Ceiling”, “Blind Vision” and “Don’t Tell Me”. Always willing to change and adapt, their sound has evolved sometimes sharp and minimalist, sometimes lighter and ambient, sometimes flickering between bleak and crazy – always free and experimental.

Opening on Friday night is Luna. Intoxicated by the charisma and the raw authenticity of artists like Janis Joplin and Debbie Harry, Luna was hooked by the glamour and power of music from an early age. Now, a fully-fledged singer/songwriter she takes to the stage with her own outrageously gifted band.
