With festival season 2022 well and truly under way, what better way to end the week than Reading and Leeds Festival dropping a bunch more acts. New on the line up for the 2022 edition include Ashnikko, Cassyette, Barns Courtney, Luude, and HO99O9. These new additions join previously announced dual headliners on the Main Stages as well as the BBC Introducing stage line-up. As to be expected this stage will show case the most exciting and fresh new talent from a variety of genres.

Popping up on the BBC Introducing stage for 2022 include left-field indie-psych outfit Honeyglaze, alongside CISI and opinionated post-punkers, DEADLETTER. You’ll also be able to catch empowering retro soul artist Caity Baser with Dolores Forever promising a catchy pop-rock vibe.

Attendees will be able to dive into a real mix of headliners offering something for everyone. Dave, Rage Against The Machine, Megan Thee Stallion, Halsey, Bring Me The Horizon, and Arctic Monkeys will all play across the festival, with dual headliners there will be few moments where you won’t be partying down at a stage indulging in some of the best music on the scene at the moment. Taking place at Reading’s famous Richfield Avenue and Leed’s Iconic Branham park across 26th-28th August 2022. With 2021 being a truly iconic event, there is no doubt 2022 will be massive.

Not only has the festival shared a stellar line up, the organisers at Festival Republic have shared news they are to fund a new research project within Music Declares Emergency. This project aims to drive good connections to UK festivals and start the transition of the UK outdoor live sector to grid power. This transition will significantly help reduce carbon emissions for the sector in relation to temporary power generation.

Festival Republic MD, Melvin Benn said“This project will be a game changer for outdoor live events. Generating our own temporary power is the highest contributor of on-site Greenhouse Gas emissions at a festival, and by plugging into the grid we will reduce this significantly. By doing this, and sharing our knowledge with others, festival goers can have an amazing time at festivals safe in the knowledge that we are doing everything we can as event organisers to create events that have positive rather than negative impacts.” 

Coming under the belt of No Music On A Dead Planet the grant gives a landmark moment to transform the UK outdoor live music portfolio as well as showing the commitment Festival Republic has for more sustainable futures in live music. Festival republic will support the project closely with the aim of delivering fully renewable powered grid connections to stages at three Festival Republic events in the 2023 festival season.
