Splendour Festival’s 2022 return extended to two days

Splendour is returning in July 2022 after two years away.

Splendour Festival has been expanded to a two-day event for its 2022 return to Wollaton Park in Nottingham.

Organisers have confirmed the festival will go ahead on July 23 and 24 with an extended line-up.

Richard Ashcroft, Anne-Marie and Supergrass have been re-confirmed while Craig David has been added to the bill.

The event last appeared in 2019 when Manic Street Preachers headlined.

Two years of Covid-related cancellations followed, and organisers DHP family suggested the long wait was behind the decision to put on a two-day event for 2022.

Craig David joins the Saturday bill while Anne-Marie, The Human League and Razorlight lead the way on Sunday’s Main Stage.

Ocean Colour Scene and Happy Mondays are the latest additions to the Sunday Confetti Stage.

DHP Family Managing Director George Akins said: “We’ve really missed Splendour Festival for the last two years, so the anticipation to get back out to Wollaton Park is massive.

“Our whole team is incredibly excited about the line-up but more than anything, we’re all excited about being back at festivals, delivering a fantastic event for the people of Nottingham and making sure everyone there has a great time.”

Craig David has been added to the bill for the extended event.

DHP Family Director of Live, Anton Lockwood said: “We’re really happy to be taking Splendour into a second day after going two years without a festival.

“We’re very pleased to have kept so many artists from what would have been our 2020 line-up on the bill, and are delighted to add loads of additional names to give those who have kept hold of their tickets something new to get excited for.”

Also confirmed for the first day are Tori Sheard, Jerub, The Selecter and Sleeper while Melanie C, Happy Mondays and Beka are on Sunday’s bill with more to be announced.

The Confetti Stage at Splendour is run in partnership with Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies.

Craig Chettle MBE, Chief Executive of Confetti added: “We are delighted to once again be a partner in Nottingham’s biggest and best outdoor festival when it makes its eagerly-awaited return this year. Teams from Confetti and Notts TV – ably supported by Confetti students – will once again be working hard behind the scenes helping to bring two days of superb entertainment to the festival-goers.”

Weekend tickets are £85 for adults, with day tickets priced at £56. Accompanied children aged 10 and under go free, and Nottingham City residents are eligible for a discount. VIP options are also available across all ticket types. Tickets can be purchased from splendourfestival.com
