Aphex Twin – real name Richard D. James – hinted at the headline slot last week via a mysterious website that had little information on the site apart from “LONDON” splashed across the page.

His last performance took place nearly four years ago, when he played a headline show at Printworks.

Aphex Twin has played at the festival before, with a headline audiovisual show in 2017. Read Mixmag’s review of the performance here.
