On Saturday, July 11 the band will perform alongside Charlie XCX, Clairo, Pale Waves, Phoebe Bridgers and Cavetown.

Organisers say it will be the first time in the UK that traceable, sustainably sourced HVO fuel from Europe will be used to power an entire event.

It will mark the first paperless show in Finsbury Park and fans are encouraged to bring old band T-shirts to be reprinted with new designs to create sustainable merchandise.

The album Notes On A Conditional Form, which will be released later this year, features a call to arms from climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
