HEAVEN 17 announced as headliners

Very very smart synth funk dusted with the highest quality of pop, Penthouse and Pavement remains one of the coolest and enduring electronic masterpieces of our time. They are a revelation as a live band.

Heaven 17 are an English synth-pop band formed in Sheffield in 1980. The band were a trio for most of their career, composed of former Human League members Martyn Ware (keyboards, drum machine, vocals) and Ian Craig Marsh (keyboards) with vocalist Glenn Gregory.

Although most of their music was recorded in the 1980s, they have occasionally reformed, and played their first live concerts in 1997.

In late 2018 Heaven 17 gigs in Liverpool, London, Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester and Sheffield celebrated the 35th anniversary of The Luxury Gap album. The tour support was provided by X-Propaganda featuring Claudia Brücken and Susanne Freytag from '80s band Propaganda.

In October/November 2019 the band took part as 'Special Guests' on a tour with Squeeze.
