Bombay Bicycle Club to make live return with headline slot at Wilderness Festival

They're back...

Bombay Bicycle Club have announced that they will make their live return this summer with a headline slot at Wilderness Festival.

After confirming plans to return once more last month, the London band will now make their first comeback appearance at the Oxfordshire Festival on Friday August 2. Tickets for the festival are on sale now.

They join an impressive line-up that already includes the likes of Groove Armada, Tom Grennan, Robyn and Tom Grennan.

In January, they announced their return by sharing a snippet of 27 second instrumental music.

“With a new year ahead of us, we thought now would be a good moment to give you a bit of news about what the four of us have been up to recently and what we have planned,” the band said in a statement.

“Since late last year we’ve been getting back into the swing of playing music together. We were initially a little rusty but also nostalgic playing songs that have been around since we were teenagers.

“More than anything it just felt great to be in the same room playing again. It made us realise what a good thing we have and has given us renewed energy and enthusiasm for the future.

“The joy we were getting out of playing the old songs seemed to naturally lead us onto working on new material, so we’re becoming immersed in that as we speak. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we have something new for you guys to hear.

“We’re also planning some shows for later this year and beyond. We’ll have news on that front over the coming months.”
