Fronted by lead vocalist Philip Oakey and backing singers Joanne Catherall and Susan Sulley, the distinctive band have had a string of hits with Mirror Man, Louise, The Lebanon, Human, Love Action (I Believe In Love), and (Keep Feeling) Fascination.
Their classic single Don't You Want Me brought transatlantic success and the album from which it was taken, Dare, became an essential part of the record collection for a generation of pop fans.

Commenting on the latest addition to the Thetford Forest line-up, Peter Rawlinson, from the Forestry Commission said: 'I am delighted we have secured The Human League as part of this year's live music programme. They are the defining act of their genre and with their stack of hits, this should provide a real 'friends reunited' night out.'
The Human League has influenced many electro-pop and mainstream acts, including Madonna, Moby and Little Boots. They have been sampled and covered by various artists including Craig David, George Michael and Robbie Williams.
