Tickets go onsale from January 31st, priced at £59 and £110 for a weekend pass.
Meanwhile, Grizzly Bear have debuted the video for ‘gun-shy‘, described by director Kris Moyes thus:
“The idea came from a question: if the creative energy of any living organism could be seen, what would it look like? Ed, Daniel, T and Bear demonstrate where their creative energy is located by extracting their hair, nails, skin, sweat, tears and blood. This is an invitation for a very rare glimpse of what creative energy could look like on a molecular level, if it could be seen.”
