Elbow, Paul Weller confirmed for Jodrell Bank festival show

By
Elbow and Paul Weller have been announced as headliners of two shows at the Jodrell Bank observatory.

The Manchester band play the outdoor stage near the iconic Lovell telescope in Cheshire on June 23. Weller plays the following day. Both artists will be supported by special guests.



"As well as providing an amazing backdrop the telescope will also be serving a secondary purpose as the world's most incredible projection screen," organisers said.

"Throughout the day there will be experiments and workshops along with free access to the new visitor centre - but come evening it's all about the music and one mind-blowing and totally unique show."
