Desertfest reveal full, massive 2022 line-up

Next May bank holiday (April 29 – May 1), headliners Witchcraft (Friday), Shellac (Saturday) and Electric Wizard (Sunday), will top a bill also featuring underground heroes like Orange Goblin, EyeHateGod, The Obsessed, Corrosion Of Conformity, Yob, Elder and Conan. 

Founding owner of Desertfest Reece Tee enthuses: Desertfest is 10 years old! I’m so proud that our independent festival has stood the test of time. What we have created is special, a decade of great bands, great friends and amazing memories. This year’s line up is a true reflection of how diverse Desertfest has become and with such a loyal audience, Desertfest can champion the underground for decades more to come.”
