Grammy award winning singer songwriter Father John Misty announces a UK exclusive headline show, at the Grade I listed and newly renovated Piece Hall in Halifax.

Father John Misty has enjoyed much critical acclaim following the release of his award-winning third album ‘Pure Comedy’, and he brings his charismatic live show to Halifax joined by a host of special guests. Recent live appearances include a headline performance at End of the Road Festival, and sold out UK tour in late 2017. This special event will be the only headline show in the UK taking place this Summer.
Best known for his tenure fronting the Scottish pop revivalists Orange Juice as well as his international solo hit “A Girl Like You,” singer Edwyn Collins joining Misty on the bill on Saturday 26th May.

Also announced today is Frightened Rabbit, who celebrated the 10 year anniversary of the release of the seminal album ‘Midnight Organ Fight’ at the end of 2017 with three special UK shows. They will bring their clever but purposefully naïve pop music to the beautiful backdrop of Piece Hall.

Following the release of their first new work in 3 years in album ‘Microshift’, our good friends and Leeds/ Halifax based psychedelic noise rock band Hookworms will add their signature sound of euphoric catharsis to this one of a kind bill.

Completing the line-up is one of the most exciting young bands in the country right now, Halifax’s fast-rising The Orielles. Having announced details of the release of their debut album, ‘Silver Dollar Moment’ on Heavenly Recordings, their sound is tinged by their influences from 90s alternative rock bands Sonic Youth and Pixies.

This is the first event of its kind to take place at the recently reopened 66,000 sq ft open air piazza Piece Hall, following a multi-million pound transformation.
