Having been forced to postpone their 2021 weekender until 2022 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, organisers at Teddy Rocks Festival, the Childrens Cancer Charity, have now announced a stellar line-up for 2022 including headliners Eagles of Death Metal.

Teddy Rocks festival director, Tom Newton said: “Today we launch our biggest and best lineup yet with our first international headliner! We have survived brexit, and a pandemic, and we are still here ready to lead the charge in raising money for children with cancer. This event is more determined than ever to do good with an army of people to help get it over the line. Grab a ticket today and join the fight!

We want to say a massive thank you to anybody who has already purchased tickets before and during these unprecedented times. It really has kept us motivated and driven and reminds us that not only are we able to help children with cancer and their families, but we also provide local musicians with a platform and give young people the opportunity to share stages with bands that they aspire to. We simply cannot do this without you!”

Over 100 acts are set to perform across the weekend with 4 stages, outdoor bars, incredible food stalls, and lots of family-friendly activities. The current confirmed line-up reads as follows:

Poster for Teddy Rocks 2022 Festival

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
