She'll headline Field Day in June
PJ Harvey has announced her first live show of 2016.
She will headline Field Day on London’s Victoria Park on June 12.
This will be her first UK live show with a full band since she played at the Royal Albert Hall in 2011.
Other acts confirmed for the festival include Deerhunter, Four Tet and Cass McCombs for Saturday June 11; while Beach House, John Grant and The Thurston Moore Band will appear on the Sunday along with Harvey.
Harvey recently showcased new material at the London Literature Festival held at the city’s Southbank Centre in October.
The event coincided with the publication of her new poetry and photography book, The Hollow Of The Hand; a collaboration with photographer Seamus Murphy.
The book of poetry and images was created during Harvey and Murphy’s travels to destinations including Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Washington, DC between 2011 and 2014.
The event included poetry readings and new songs performed by PJ Harvey alongside images and a short film by Murphy.
A number of the songs played were generated during the Recording In Progress sessions that took place at London’s Somerset House earlier this year. Click here to read Uncut’s report of those sessions.
