Cornbury Festival confirms line up for 2022 event

The festival will return to Great Tew Park in Oxfordshire next Summer.

James Blunt, The Darkness, Bryan Adams, The Waterboys, Ronan Keating and Jools Holland & his Rhythmn and Blues Orchestra have been confirmed to be part of the 2022 line-up.

The festival is due to take place across the weekend of 8, 9, & 10 July. 

A spokesperson for the festival said: “After a long sad two year sabbatical we wanted to return with a classic Cornbury line-up – old friends who simply do what they do brilliantly and make us smile. We don’t want to do serious, we simply want to have tons of fun over the whole weekend!

“Joining perennial Canadian rocker Bryan Adams will be ex-military troubadour James Blunt with theatrical rock popsters The Darkness, Scottish stars The Waterboys and a perfect Sunday finale double bill of Ronan Keating & Jools Holland. And of course we’ll release the full bells & whistles line-up early next year.”

As well as music, Cornbury Festival also has a Kids Zone. It is said to offer a cornucopia of workshops, activities and shows to keep children of all ages entertained throughout the weekend.

Founder Hugh Phillimore’s daughter Rose, heads up the Quality Control Team along with aficionardo Jem Maynard-Watts who has curated Cornbury for Kids for the last 10 years. The kids area provides a variety of supervised activities, workshops and shows where younger attendees will have the opportunity to experience art, music and drama.

Cornbury also hosts a feast that members of the public can book in advance on its website.
