FESTIVAL NEWS: Rebellion Festival Launch New R-FEST Event
Rebellion Festival have announced a new outdoor event for 2022 titled R-FEST. Taking place between 4th and 7th August 2022, R-FEST will be held in front of Blackpool Tower and will run alongside the alt and punk Rebellion Festival taking place at the Winter Gardens.
The line-up for the new event has been announced and includes headliners Levellers, The Stranglers, Gary Numan and Squeeze. Also appearing at R-Fest will be The Wildhearts, The Undertones, Peter Hook & the Light, Hollie Cook and more, including a special yet to be announced guest.
Festival organise Jennie Russell-Smith says: “After the long delays and world craziness we are absolutely delighted to give you the full R-FEST line up for 2022 (apart from one special guest slot that will be worth waiting for). It has not been easy to pull all of these amazing bands together for four days, many bands are still rescheduling shows from 2020, but we are all incredibly excited for our first ever R-FEST line up; four days of bands in the incredible headland arena with the tower and the Wintergardens on one side and the Irish Sea on the other! It’s going to be amazing!!”

R-FEST is a standalone event and day tickets are available for £50 per day. Rebellion Festival weekend and day ticket holders can get into R-FEST for free, with re-entry available to allow fans to check out their favourite acts on each line-up. Head HERE for further information and tickets.
