John Grant major music event at Hull City Hall

 

Venue one of several to host international artists this weekend as part of festival for Hull 2017

Hull City Hall is one of the several venues across the city hosting an unmissable showcase of musical talent this bank holiday weekend as part of John Grant’s North Atlantic Flux: Sounds from Smoky Bay.

Bringing a mix of electronica from techno and pop to post-punk and contemporary classical, this four-day festival takes places from Friday, April 28 to Monday, May 1 as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017.

Two-day and four-day passes are still available to see some of the most exciting and innovative musicians from Scandinavia, Iceland, and the UK at this one-off event.

There will be surprise collaborations and experimentalism as well as an exclusive live set by John Grant himself for one of the most electrifying live events of the year.

Artists include GusGus, Susanne Sundfør, Lindstrøm, Sóley, Sykur, Prins Póló, Nordic Affect, Ragga Gisla and Fufanu, as well as British artists Wrangler, Cobby & Litten, and Actress – the acclaimed electronic producer whose just released new album AZD has received rave reviews.

Performances will take place at Hull City Hall, Jubilee Church, Fruit and Gate No 5 across the weekend.

Highlights at the Hull City Hall include GusGus, who will headline the opening night of North Atlantic Flux with their first live performance in several years.

On Saturday, there will be a party atmosphere at the hall with Norwegian Electronic legend Lindstrøm and a Wrangler DJ Set.

On Sunday, North Atlantic Flux guest curator, John Grant, will headline the final night of the festival with support from Icelandic songstress Sóley and the explosive Ghostdigital.

In addition, for the duration of the festival, Hull City Hall’s Mortimer Suite will host an installation by Jez Riley French (CORR).

This immersive audio-visual journey around the world uses sonic recordings of the very sound of our planet turning.

With visual aids, the piece aims to connect the viewer with the frequencies of their home, Earth.

North Atlantic Flux two-day passes are available for Friday and Saturday or Sunday and Monday priced at £65 or £60 for concessions.

Four-day passes covering the whole festival are available for £89 or £82 for concessions.
