Hot Chip will play their only gig of the year which will be streamed live around the world from Dreamland.
The Margate attraction has been dubbed "Streamland" specially for the gig by the band, who last played there back in 2018.
They have also appeared at the By the Sea music festival, which ran for three years.
Hot Chip Live in Streamland will happen on Saturday, September 5 and feature Hot Chip's mix of floor-ready bangers and moving synth pop melodies.
The band said in a statement: “To all the good people of Margate and around the world, we know it’s been a difficult year and you are starved of the sweet vibrations of live music. After all the cancellations, it’s become really important to us that we perform live and direct to our fans. We’ve teamed up with Streamland to play our only show this year - live with all the maximalist production of a full festival set. It’ll be streamed into your screens at high resolution. We’re pretty stoked about it and can’t wait for you to join us.”
The show will consist of three broadcasts at different times for different time zones; effectively a virtual 24 hour world tour. There will also be a small, socially-distanced audience.
The event will only be available to watch live, and won't be rebroadcast.

Eddie Kemsley, CEO of Dreamland said: "We are beyond delighted to be the venue partner for Streamland, hosting what is a globally exclusive, live streamed, one-of-a-kind festival experience performance from Hot Chip. We are thrilled to welcome them back. Despite the challenges of 2020 it’s with great pride that we are able to deliver some good news by way of a live gig - albeit from our front rooms - for everyone to join in. Months in the making with lots of hard work from the Dreamland, Percolate, Dice and Hot Chip teams, we can’t wait to tune in on Saturday."
