Holly Herndon has detailed a string of new shows for the second half of 2015, following the release of acclaimed second album Platform.
Following June's sold-out show at XOYO - "the future flickered briefly into view" [The Quietus] - Holly will return to the UK as part of Illuminations Festival, when she will perform and curate the line-up on 4th November at Oval Space, London. November will also see further shows in Italy and Germany, plus ATP Festival in Prestatyn, Wales. You can see the full list of announced international shows below.
This week also brings news that Holly will speak at the inaugural Long Progress Bar festival, in Brighton this September. Billed as "a festival of radical imagination" it represents part of the Brighton Digital Festival, and the two-day event will see Holly both presenting and running her own workshop.
