The Stranglers confirmed for North Yorkshire festival
LEGENDARY rockers the Stranglers will be headlining this year’s Galtres Festival in North Yorkshire.
They will be closing the three-day event at Duncombe Park, Helmsley, on August 25.
Scoring 24 UK top 40 singles, and 18 UK top 40 albums in a career spanning four decades, the Stranglers are the longest-surviving and most continuously successful band to have originated in the UK punk scene of the late 1970s.
Their hits include Peaches, No More Heroes, Something Better Change, Always The Sun, Golden Brown, Strange Little Girl and Skin Deep among many others.
Festival director James Houston said: "This is a major coup for us.
“The Stranglers have stood the test of time brilliantly, with outstanding recent festival performances and a new album building on their extraordinary success over four decades.
“They are legends, we've always dreamed of booking them, and now they are coming. It will be a fabulous end to this year's festival .”
