Following three consecutive cancellations, the festival's third edition will take place this August

UK festival Houghton has confirmed plans to return for its third edition later this year.

Having launched in 2017 and hosted a second edition the following year, the Craig Richards-curated festival has since been plagued by three consecutive cancellations owing to bad weather (2019) and the COVID-19 pandemic (2020 and 2021). In a press statement confirming plans for the festival's return this year, organisers said: "This extraordinary journey has only made us more passionate and determined. The future of Houghton was never in doubt. August cannot come soon enough for us all." The full lineup for the event will be revealed in the coming months, while tickets will go on sale on February 3.

Houghton will take place from August 11 to 14, 2022. Find more information here.
