Peter Hook

Peter Hook will perform a set of Joy Division songs chosen by fans at a festival next year.

The bass player will perform the classic album Unknown Pleasures in full with his band The Light at Alt-Fest, a new event that takes place at Boughton House, Kettering between 15 and 17 August 2014.

Hook said:  "Having played some 200 gigs with The Light now, I've found that the fans all have their own particular favourite tracks which they want to hear live. It's a great idea to throw some of the set list over to the people at Alt-Fest to see what they most want to hear us play. It will be interesting to see what they come back with".

Also appearing on the bill are Killing Joke and Arch Enemy. For more on the festival, see
