Those lucky enough to have snapped up tickets for this year’s festival, which sold out in record time, will be treated to excellent headline performances but also the most exciting programme of fresh talent ready to be catapulted into fame from the stunning Larmer Tree site. As ever there is also a plethora of non-musical entertainment round every corner, from literature talks and wellness pop-ups to late night comedy and art-house cinema all available to the discerning punter.
Festival co-founder Simon Taffe reflects on one of independent music’s most beloved summer events: “I’m beyond excited about our 2022 lineup, which features artists we’ve been asking to play since 2006 and includes some of the greatest songwriters of all time in my opinion. It really feels like this is the summer all festivals have been waiting for, a summer three years in the making for some. We have all been through a lot together and it feels good to be back, and to finally be able to dance with friends and artists from all over the world again.”
