Houghton has revealed the full lineup for its 2022 edition.

After being cancelled for three consecutive years, due to bad weather and the COVID-19 pandemic, the August event will mark the Norfolk festival's third edition. Organisers have said that the 2022 lineup is largely in line with the event that had been due to take place in 2019 before its last minute cancellation.

Among the DJs lined up to play are Helena Hauff, Ricardo Villalobos, Call Super, DJ Stingray, Ben UFO, DJ Storm, Joy Orbison, Lena Willikens, Vladimir Ivkovic and Optimo. Live sets will come from the likes of Afrodeutsche, DMX Krew, Maayan Nidam, John T. Gast, Convextion, Terrence Dixon and dBridge – the latter of whom will also separately DJ.

"Our intention has always been to honour the festival that didn't happen in 2019," said Houghton co-founder Craig Richards in a statement. "With the return of possibilities we finally have the chance to build upon the joy of year one and two. We look forward to successfully celebrating year three in year six. None of us could have imagined such a suspenseful and prolonged journey to the summit. But get there we shall. Preparations are fully under way, the magic of Houghton will soon return.

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