Additionally, the 2022 BBC Introducing stage line-up has also been revealed, featuring the most exciting upcoming talent in rock, indie, alternative, hip-hop and dance.

Offering a tour-de-force of cutting-edge and enthralling names in every genre, the three-day festival takes place on 26 to 28 August, returning to Leeds’ legendary Bramham Park.

Alongside the huge announcement of artists joining the bill, Reading and Leeds’ organisers Festival Republic have announced that they are to fund a new research project within Music Declares Emergency.

The project aims to drive grid connections to UK festivals and begin the transition of the UK outdoor live sector to grid power, ultimately reducing carbon emissions.

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.”
