Don’t delay: tickets go on sale this Friday 3 September at 10am for 2022’s Bluedot Festival, taking place on 21-24 July next year. In a UK festival exclusive Björk will be performing as Sunday night’s headliner.

The genre-spanning pioneer will be joined by The Hallé Orchestra at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Jodrell Bank Observatory, accompanied by a projection mapping spectacle. The audio-visual performance will feature video and animated projections on the iconic Lovell Telescope, for a unique show exclusive to bluedot. This will be the first-time audiences at bluedot have seen the dish of the 76-metre wide Lovell Telescope surface transformed into a gigantic digital artwork.

Festival director Ben Robinson said: “After the postponements of the last two summers we wanted to return with something extra special and unique. We spoke to Björk’s team about curating visuals to accompany the show & being the first confirmed artists to project onto the surface of the Lovell Telescope at bluedot festival. Björk and her team are already working on this unique spectacle & we are incredibly grateful for their enthusiasm for making the closing set of bluedot’s return truly unique.”
