Tickets now on sale at splendourfestival.com

Splendour is bouncing back bigger and better than ever since its last outing three years ago with the news that it will be expanding to include a second day and adding yet more acts to the bill (23-24 July 2022).

With double the stage time, the line-up for Nottinghamshire’s biggest music festival is stacked out with headliners serving up contemporary and classic hits galore including Richard Ashcroft, Anne-Marie, Supergrass, Craig David presents TS5, The Human League, Razorlight, The Vamps, Ocean Colour Scene, Happy Mondays, Belinda Carlisle, and many many more. Staying true to the recipe that makes Splendour a hit with thousands of revellers, the line-up skillfully blends an eclectic mix of newer acts, Splendour debutantes and established heavy hitters across both days.

DHP Family MD, 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 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 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, Ocean Colour Scene, Happy Mondays and Beka are on Sunday’s bill with more to be announced.

The Confetti Stage at Splendour is in partnership with Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies, a leading provider of creative industry education. Craig Chettle MBE, Chief Executive Confetti comments: “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

Existing ticket holders who rolled over are being given the opportunity to upgrade their day ticket to the full weekend for an additional £25.

Cllr Sally Longford, Deputy Leader of Nottingham City Council, said: “We are so pleased that Splendour is not only returning this year but it is coming back with two days of wonderful family entertainment. We know there is always a buzz around the city when this event is announced – it’s a key date in people’s calendars. We look forward to welcoming everybody back to Wollaton Park this summer.”
