Legendary bass player Peter Hook has been confirmed to play Alt-Fest with his band, The Light. And if that’s not enough for all of you post-punk lovers, then maybe this is – they will be playing Joy Division‘s “Unknown Pleasures” album in full!

Another treat is that fans will have the chance to choose which other songs Hook shall play to complete the set. In his own words: “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”. 

You will be able to vote from a selection of Joy Division tracks online, via, with the top six making Hook’s final playlist.
