The band, consisting of singer Beth Gibbons, Geoff Barrow and Adrian Utley, released its second album “Portishead” in 1997 and “Third” in 2008.     

Portishead recently re-released its iconic 1994 debut album “Dummy” to mark its 20th anniversary.

Along with Portishead, London-based rock band Savages, English band Thought Forms and Turkish groups The Ringo Jets, The Away Days and Telepotik will also take part of the festival.
