Shindig Festival drops full lineup for 2022


Signalling the start of the summer, Shindig Festival which takes part between 26th – 29th May 2022 will be the finest edition to date. It’s taking place in a new location Dillington Estate, Somerset, a 16th Century house and hotel that not only provides the backdrop but also some high-end accommodation. The festival will take place in the beautiful, tree-studded parkland surrounding the estate.

Shindig Festival has evolved over the years from being a party for the network of friends of the Ghetto Funk record label to a festival with a reputation for an incredible line up and a super-friendly vibe.  It’s a glorious mash up of a gig, a free party, a circus show, a series of curious craft workshops, a wellbeing retreat and a kid’s party.  Voted ‘Best For Family Rave’, it has been blazing a trail since 2014 and attracting an ever more diverse crowd.

Some of the artists announced include Roy Ayers, Goldie, Stanton Warriors, DJ Flight, Crazy P, De La Soul, Nighmares On Wax, Dillinja, Kosheen, T>I, Jamz Supernova, DJ Rap, Birdee, Uncle Dugs and a load more too!

“I’m so excited about 2022. It’s the most diverse lineup we’ve ever seen. From gospel choirs to Shindig regulars and everything in between: pioneers, legends and luminaries, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to dance the weekend away in beautiful new surroundings.” – Will Lardner, Festival Co-Founder

There are no main stages, just a beautiful arrangement of stretch marquees. From watching circus to hearing spoken word or learning a new skill, there’s something for everyone. Bringing a healthy dose of foot-stomping funk and a packed programme of entertainment for all ages, Shindig Festival offers relaxation and revelry in equal measures.

For those that like to mix wellness with wildness, Shanti Shala is the perfect place to unwind, recharge and reconnect. You will find a variety of therapists offering treatments to relax and restore your body and mind. From yoga, massage, pilates, tai chi and ecstatic dance – there is a huge range to choose from.  Bigger than ever before, the Craft Area will offer workshops on everything from felt making to spoon whittling, woodworking and jewellery making for all the family.

The Kids Kingdom has expanded. This year it will house a skate ramp, crazy golf course, kids cinema and plenty of inflatable fun. You can book clay-modelling workshops with Aardman, drumming sessions with Jamba de Samba and make clothes from scrap materials. Not forgetting the outrageously and abnormally energetic Flying Seagull Project who are back by popular demand!
