News: Faithless announce first live shows in 8 years including London's iconic Roundhouse

Eight years on from their final live performance, today (19th April 2024), Faithless announce their return to the global stage. The announcement includes their first run of live dates, including London’s iconic Roundhouse and  shows in Belgium, Luxembourg, and Amsterdam, which lead into headline sets at 3 of the major UK festivals: Glastonbury, Wilderness and Bestival.

In their own words Faithless write:

“As many of you have noticed, we’re back…Some shows have already been announced but we couldn’t start the summer without a little personal note. Maxi died just over a year ago and obviously we miss him every day. Thank you all for all of your kind words of support over this last year. It has really, really meant a lot.

In the meantime, we never stopped (couldn’t stop, never wanted to stop!) making music. Even during Maxi’s long illness we recorded and released ‘All Blessed’ and now finally, 8 years after our last live performance, we are returning to festival stages across the summer and are planning some of our own shows later this year…”

The band’s cultural significance is unparalleled – leading the charge of dance acts cutting through on a global level, and showing promoters that electronic music deserves its place on the main stages – they’re 2002 Glastonbury performance proving this to aplomb. Faithless have proved it’s possible to achieve both critical and commercial success while delivering boundary pushing dance music with feeling and integrity.
