Florence And The Machine Headline Oya Festival


Florence and the Machine hit the stage for a headlining set at the Oya Festival in Oslo, Norway earlier this week. They took the stage on day two of the festival and joined an impressive list of headliners including Father John Misty and Run the Jewels.

The appearance came at busy time for Florence, who also recently forced matches of the Davis Cup tennis tournament to change venues to accommodate her gig. The gig at Manchester Arena took precedence over a tennis match between the British Davis Cup team and Australia, forcing the teams to look for new ground to play the semi-final.

Florence is scheduled to play Manchester Arena on September 18, while the tennis matches were to take place between September 18-20. The Lawn Tennis Association's Michael Downey told the BBC that he tried to have the band move things around but its management wouldn't budge.
