Placebo announce exclusive 2022 UK festival show headlining Bearded Theory’s Spring Gathering
Alt.rock legends Placebo have announced a UK exclusive festival show for 2022: headlining Bearded Theory’s Spring Gathering.
The band will top the May bill alongside Patti Smith and The Flaming Lips, and will reportedly be giving fans during the show a ‘tantalising taste of some brand-new material’ – which makes sense as they said they had finished work on record number eight back in May.
Elsewhere, the bill features the likes of Nova Twins, The Mission, Amy McDonald and Peter Hook & The Light, with many more acts still to be announced. Bearded Theory’s Spring Gathering takes place from May 26 – 29, 2022, with tickets going on sale at 9am on Saturday, September 11.

“ ‘New music and concerts!!’ is the rallying cry and we hear you. Please do not despair and trust that album eight is finished and being primed for release. We are also presently busy booking live dates.”
“If the song serves to irritate the squares and the uptight, so gleefully be it,” says Placebo’s Brian Molko…
