The Human League

80s legends performing iconic hits like 'Don't You Want Me'

Date: 23rd June 2022
Time: 21:00 (Palace Gardens open at 17:30)

We cannot wait to welcome 80s legends The Human League to our Festival this June!

The Human League - who were never about youth revolt do not find themselves embarrassed by singing their older songs today - see what they do, making adult, quality electronic pop, as an ongoing project. Without a doubt, these songs will stir memories and associations within you: that’s what great pop music DOES. The band themselves are mercifully untouched by retro cheesiness and always keenly aware of the musical climate.

Although the subject of retirement is often brought up in interviews, Oakey, Sulley and Catherall have all stated that they still enjoy performing and intend to carry on for "as long as they are filling concerts and people want to see them". Sulley often jokes that she "has to carry on because she doesn’t know how to do anything else.”

Oakey, Catherall, and Sulley have all said that it is the intention for the band to release a tenth studio album "in the near future" however no details or timescale have been given. On possible collaborations, Oakey stated on BBC TV News and to the NME that "we have a lot of people that want to make records with us.

Thirty years on, The Human League still stand tall tall tall, big as a wall wall wall!
