BRIT award winners Mumford & Sons are to play Greenhead Park in Huddersfield.
The band – who performed at Glastonbury last summer – will bring their own touring show to the park on Saturday, June 2.
The concert by Mumford & Sons is the biggest music event in Huddersfield for years since Elton John played at the Galpharm Stadium in 2005.
It has been billed as the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover and will also feature artists such as Michael Kiwanuka, Willy Mason, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Correspondents.
Tickets for the event will go on sale later this month and cost £49.50.
News of the gig has been hailed as a coup by Kirklees Council, who last year completed a £5m revamp of the popular park.
They had already announced plans for a free three-day event to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, starting on June 8.
Easy Theatres will perform music by Abba and the Bee Gees in the special one-off show called Thank-you for the Music. The Orchestra of Opera North will put on a proms concert in the park the following evening.
The Sunday afternoon will see the return of the Party in the Park pop event.
Council chief executive Adrian Lythgo, said: “I am absolutely delighted that an act with a huge international following has chosen to hold such a high profile part of their tour here in Huddersfield.
“The fact that this is their only ‘mini festival’ date in the UK before they move on to Ireland and America is a massive endorsement of our town, once again proving that we’ve got something special to offer the promoters of large events, and creating a lucrative opportunity for our local businesses to benefit.”
