New names on the line-up TSHA, Maribou State, George Fitzgerald (Live), Ela Minus Romy, Theo Nasa, Max Cooper and Mount Kimbie and Ben Böhmer.
These artists join the previously announced Four Tet, Anz, Avalon Emerson, Midland, Leon Vynehall, Jossy Mitsu, Eris Drew b2b Octo Octa, Adam Beyer, ANNA, Anastasia Kristensen and Amelie Lens among many more. You can see the full line-up in the Instagram post below.
The festival was originally scheduled to take place on the first weekend of June in Boston Manor Park, but was forced to move due to Covid-19-related building delays.
In a statement, Junction 2 founder Will Harold said: “It has been quite a journey through COVID-19, to come through that and find Boston Manor Park is unavailable to us in 2022 was a real body blow. We are so disappointed as a team, but at the same time we have been feel honored at the sheer volume of people who have waited patiently to see this epic line up, so the show must go on, and are determined that we will deliver this Festival in true J2 spirit to repay your support and loyalty.
“We have worked in Trent park many times before so we know the space, its strengths and crucially that we can achieve great sound. After such a long wait, I’m excited to get back to doing what Junction 2 does best.”
