Hove Festivalen confirms Faith No More

American rock legends Faith No More have been confirmed as headliners for this summer's Hove Festivalen.

The festival is the first Scandinavian event to secure the influential quintet who are reforming after 11 years. They are down to headline on the Thursday night.

Speaking about the announcement, Hove organiser Melvin Benn said: “Their headline performance at Pheonix in 1993 is still ringing in my ears. This is a hell of a coup for Hove! Faith No More’s music remains relevant today and their influence over today's younger bands is huge.”

The band join co-headliners The Killers and Slipknot as well as a slew of high calibre acts that include Franz Ferdinand, All That Remains, White Lies, The Gaslight Anthem and many more.
