Blur‘s Graham Coxon and KT Tunstall are among the acts set to play Shift festival this January.

The climate-focused festival takes place at London‘s South Bank from January 26-31. Coxon and Tunstall, along with Kathryn Williams, will join Robyn Hitchcock in what’s billed as a Maritime Evening at Queen Elizabeth Hall on January 30.

Other acts playing Shift include Liam Frost, who teams up with Max Eastley for a one-off performance at The Front Room in Queen Elizabeth Hall on January 29.

Hitchcock‘s Maritime Evening celebrates Cape Farewell organisation, which brings together artists, scientists and communicators to discuss the production of art founded in scientific research. Both Hitchcock and Tunstall took part in an expedition to the Arctic with the organisation in 2008, along with Jarvis Cocker.

Tickets for the shows are on sale now. See for more information.
