Blue­dot fans may remem­ber that Björk was sched­uled to be one of the head­lin­ers for 2019 until the event was post­poned. The unique Ice­landic artist is now sched­uled for next year, 2022, where she will head­line the final Sun­day night show in a unique show with Man­ches­ter’s Hal­lé Orchestra.

Björk will be joined by The Hal­lé at the UNESCO World Her­itage site of Jodrell Bank Obser­va­to­ry, accom­pa­nied by a pro­jec­tion map­ping spectacle.

The audio-visu­al per­for­mance will fea­ture video and ani­mat­ed pro­jec­tions on the icon­ic Lovell Tele­scope for a unique show exclu­sive to Blue­dot. This will be the first-time audi­ences at Blue­dot will be able to see the dish of the 76-metre wide Lovell Tele­scope sur­face trans­formed into a gigan­tic dig­i­tal artwork.

Tere­sa Ander­son, Direc­tor of the Jodrell Bank Cen­tre for Engage­ment, says, “We’re delight­ed to wel­come Blue­dot back to its home at Jodrell Bank. Björk is an artist who works on the cre­ative com­mon ground between art and sci­ence so it’s amaz­ing that she will be head­lin­ing the fes­ti­val, here at the UK’s home of Astro­physics. We’re real­ly look­ing for­ward to see­ing every­one again!”
