Festival co-founders Andy Smith and Ben Robinson said: “After an absolutely stunning festival last year, we cannot wait to get back in those fields! With Kasabian, Royal Blood, Blossoms, Nile Rodgers & Chic, Kaiser Chiefs, Rick Astley, Annie Mac – the line-up is looking absolutely stacked. All we need now is a bit of sun and we’ve got the perfect weekend!”
Last year’s event saw headline sets from Bastille, Supergrass and Stereophonics.
Speaking in November 2021 about the return of the festival, which was cancelled in 2020 and 2021, Smith and Robinson said that the event’s 2022 instalment had been “three years in the making”.
“Organising festivals is never easy, yet despite the false starts and setbacks encountered we have never been more geared up as we prepare for the festival of a lifetime,” they said at the time in a joint statement.
