The singer will close the final night of the outdoor gigs on The Great Oak Stage this Sunday (July 9), with a stacked line-up of artists.
Father John Misty and Gang Of Youths will serve as the main support, backed by the likes of The Last Dinner Party, Tommy Genesis, SYML, Riopy, Holly Macve, Etta Marcus, Kings Elliot and Siights.
It’s a huge slot for The Last Dinner Party, who feature in the latest issue of Rolling Stone UK, while Riopy is a French pianist who notably appears on Del Rey’s ninth and most recent studio album ‘Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd.’
Del Rey’s last UK performance came at Glastonbury last month, which was overshadowed by her arrival on stage half an hour later than planned, which caused organisers to pull the plug on her set when it ran over a midnight curfew.
“It’s a shame that things had to end this way. In the nine years since the singer last performed at Worthy Farm, she has released six critically and commercially successful albums, and has established herself as one of the leading songwriters of her generation,” our review stated.
“She’s also grown immensely as a performer, incorporating more ambitious set dressing and choreography into her live show. Given the recent, and surprising, viral success of previously unreleased single Say Yes to Heaven (and her first solo top ten single in the UK since 2011), it’s disappointing that she was unable to perform this live.
“But alas, the powers that be chose not to grant her an extra 10 minutes to close her set and created an easily avoidable awkwardness for both Del Rey and her audience.”
