Kaiser Chiefs to curate and headline at Eden Sessions 2013

Indie-popsters Kaiser Chiefs are the latest act announced for the 2013 Eden Sessions at the Eden Project in St Austell.

They join comedian Eddie Izzard, who plays on June 3, and The xx, who play on July 2, on next summer’s line-up at the Eden Project with more acts to be announced soon.

Kaiser Chiefs return to the Eden Sessions as curators and headliners for a day of live music at the home of the Biomes.

The band will hand-pick special guests and exciting emerging artists to play across the Eden site alongside other non-musical surprises.

The Leeds lads are no strangers to Eden, having played to a sell-out crowd at the Sessions in 2008.

Kaiser Chiefs are stalwarts of the British indie rock scene with all four of their studio albums charting in the top ten, and their 2005 debut Employment selling two million copies.

Their quiver of recognisable singles is on a par with any of their contemporaries and songs such as Ruby, I Predict a Riot, Oh My God and Never Miss a Beat are an integral part of the modern British soundtrack.

This year has seen the band undertake their biggest UK tour to date, with appearances at the Reading and Leeds Festivals and T in the Park, as well as performing at the Coachella Festival in California.

The Eden Sessions are set to enter their 12th year in 2013 following an acclaimed series of gigs in 2012 headlined by Blink-182, Plan B, Tim Minchin, Chase & Status, Noah and the Whale, The Vaccines, Example and Frank Turner.

Kaiser Chiefs hit Eden Sessions on June 29, 2013. Tickets cost £30 plus booking fee and go on general sale at 5pm on January 3, 2013,  from the Eden Sessions website.
