The UK’s Wilderness Festival has announced the line-up for this year’s event, with Underworld, Years & Years and Jungle set to headline.
The festival will take place at Cornbury Park near Charlbury, Oxfordshire between August 4 and August 7. Tickets go on general sale on Monday (March 14) at 10am GMT. Visit the festival’s official website for further information.
Today, the event organizers have confirmed that Underworld will top the bill as a UK festival exclusive, having last performed on these shores back in December 2019.
Years & Years and Jungle will also appear as the remaining two headliners. Elsewhere, they’ll be performances from Roisin Murphy, Willie J Healey, Billie Marten, Pip Blom, Craig Charles, Peggy Gou, Jordan Rakei and more across the weekend.
Additionally, Wilderness has confirmed a schedule of feasting and dining experiences as well as a programme of talks, ideas and spoken word events from the likes of Russell Kane and actor/comedian Michelle De Swarte.
Underworld released their latest studio album, Drift Series 1, in 2019 as part of their multimedia ‘Drift project’, which was launched the previous year.
Described by Q as “mind-bogglingly diverse,” Drift was later released as a sampler and a super deluxe, eight-disc box set that sold out on release. Responding to both demand and many people’s changed circumstances, the package was then remodeled for a new compact edition that contains all of the original CDs and accompanying Blu-Ray along with a perfect bound, 50-page book.
Years & Years’ most recent, UK chart-topping record Night Call came out this January. Jungle, meanwhile, dropped their third full-length effort Loving In Stereo in August 2021.
Last month saw Years & Years – aka Olly Alexander – team up with Regard on a new collaborative single, “Hallucination”. “I was inspired to write it when an ex-lover attempted to re-enter my life,” Alexander explained.
