A four day music festival celebrating the best in Nordic creativity and influence taking over Hull City Centre.
We are joining forces with John Grant, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter curates a four day music festival exploring the best in sonic creativity - North Atlantic Flux: Sounds from Smoky Bay. Inviting Nordic and international artists to take over the city during the Mayday bank Holiday weekend at the heart of the Roots and Routes season of Hull 2017 - UK City of Culture.
A native of the US, Grant moved to Hull’s twin city of Reykjavik in 2011 and submerged himself in the musical and experimental culture, which the city and Nordic region has become synonymous with. He released his second studio album ‘Pale Green Ghosts’ in 2013. In recording he employed the work of several musicians local to his adopted country as well as Sinead O’Connor. His third studio album ‘Grey Tickles, Black Pressure’ was released in 2015 and listed in The Guardian & Rough Trade’s top albums of the year.
Information on programme and tickets to be announced soon.
