Tickets for Elbow’s show on 23rd June at Live From Jodrell Bank sold out in a remarkable 90 minutes and the band have confirmed their hand-picked supports for this very special show. The North East’s finest musical sons Field Music have a unique talent for taking a range of different influences and creating their own, unique pocket symphonies. Ivor Novello award winners Cherry Ghost are some of the best contemporary songwriters around whilst Lianne La Havas will be showcasing the folk and soul of her much anticipated debut album ‘Is Your Love Big Enough’. Willy Mason’s lo-fi, alt-folk completes a day of outstanding musical entertainment.

On June 24th, Paul Weller and supporting cast will ramp up the volume at this iconic setting.

Graham Coxon has been confirmed as the main support for Paul Weller’s show at the Jodrell Bank observatory and the Blur lead guitarist and solo artist is a welcome addition to what is shaping up to be a spectacular bill.

The Live From Jodrell Bank series sees some of the most innovative artists performing in this unique and dramatic setting, marrying science and music and bringing the audience superlative sounds from earth and beyond. The bands will even project visuals onto the 76 metre Lovell telescope.

Before the spectacular evening concerts and throughout each day, attendees will be able to participate in a fantastic range of hands-on experiments and workshops on site at Jodrell Bank. With full access to the magnificent Discovery centre included in every ticket, this is a great chance to find out more about the mind-blowing research happening at Jodrell Bank. Explore the wonders of the universe and find out for yourself why stargazing has enjoyed a massive resurgence in the past few years.
