The former Mercury Award winning three-piece will headline Saturday June 22’s Night + Day event which will feature global superstar Beyonce’s sister Solange.

Polica, Kindness and Mount Kimbie will also appear in the grounds of the stately home.

The show only came about after Transport for London cancelled Piccadilly and District Line services – rendering a previous venue at Osterley Park, near Richmond, unviable.

Oddly the gig is listed as taking place at London Hatfield House and follows The xx events in Lisbon and Berlin.

Tickets are on sale now and cost £48.50.
