Björk has been confirmed as the first headline act for this year's edition of La Route du Rock.

The Icelandic genius will bring her latest album Vulnicura to the seaside town of St. Malo this August, succeeding artists such as The Flaming Lips, Portishead, The National, The Cure, or Massive Attack, who have all played the festival in previous years.

Although this is the first proper announcement, the organisers promise to unveil more names soon. La Route du Rock takes place between August 14th and 16th. Ticket packages (including camping, ferry, and entry) are available to purchase for £155.
