Back 2 Festival 2022



Are you ready for the most outrageous trip down memory lane? At Catton Park, South Derbyshire in the heart of the National Forest.


48 acts join the line-up for 2022 as the festival promises to be the largest event of its kind in the UK, if not Europe!

The most outrageous trip down memory lane, BACK 2 FESTIVAL returns for summer 2022, with a line-up boasting almost 50 artists from the '80s, '90s and '00s, including headliners Steps, UB40 and Aqua. With eight UK Number 1's and over 140 weeks spent in the UK Top 10 between them, the artists are set to pull in big crowds.

Going into its sixth year, BACK 2 FESTIVAL is moving back to where it all started, at Catton Park. The event takes place from Thursday 30th June – Sunday 3rd July with improved access and room for even more festival goers.

Nostalgic heavyweights UB40 featuring Ali Campbell (In Memory of Astro), Steps and Aqua will be topping the bill, with BACK 2 FESTIVAL on their list of UK tour dates for 2022.

One of the most well known pop acts of the 90's, Claire, Faye, H, Lee and Lisa formed Steps in 1997 and their debut single '5,6,7,8' reached number 14 in the UK singles chart, remaining one of the highest selling singles to never reach the top 10. The band scored an impressive 13 top five singles in a row. The band are featuring at Catton Park as part of their 25th Anniversary Summer Tour, ready to perform classics like Tragedy, Deeper Shade of Blue and Stomp.

UB40 formed in 1978 and went on to become one of the most successful reggae bands in the world, selling over 70 million records worldwide. Originally from Birmingham, the band propelled to international stardom with classic songs including Red Red Wine, (I Can't Help) Falling in Love With You and I Got You Babe. Fuelled by their classic reggae spirit, the group is now fronted by founding member Ali Campbell, who alongside a seven-piece band is ready to get Catton Park moving as part of their upcoming tour, UB40 featuring Ali Campbell (In Memory of Astro).

Successful European pop group Aqua are looking forward to taking to the stage once again. Inspired by the likes of Ace of Base and ABBA, 'Barbie Girl' was Aqua's most popular hit, achieving success across the globe in the late 1990s and early 2000s, gaining multi-platinum status.

Joining Steps, UB40 featuring Ali Campbell (In Memory of Astro) and Aqua on the main stage throughout the weekend are the likes of East 17, Cascada, Vengaboys, T'Pau, Scouting for Girls, Toploader and Ace of Base aiming to transport revellers back a few decades.

Keeping the party going in the dance tent will be top artists including Artful Dodger, Sweet Female Attitude, Basshunter, Sash! and N-Trance.

Our stage partners for 2022 include Garage Nation, Clubland, and Birmingham's leading LGBTQ+ nightclub Nightingale.

Camping and luxury glamping options available plus caravan/campervan pitches and parking.
