Fronted by one of Britpop’s biggest female stars, Louise Wener, the band also had two tracks featured on the era defining movie ‘Trainspotting’ and has played the main stages of Reading, Glastonbury, V and Shepherd’s Bush Empire. The band reunited in 2017, completed a sell-out tour in 2019, and co-headlined a UK tour with The Bluetones in 2021.

Kitchen Disco legend Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s fame rocketed during the Covid-19 lockdown when her weekly live Instagram streams provided a means of virtual escapism for everyone tuning in.
Sophie went on to release a greatest hits album ‘Songs from the Kitchen Disco’ which includes her previous Top 10 hits, ‘Groovejet’, ‘Murder On The Dancefloor’ and ‘Take Me Home’ as well as a cover version of the Alcazar song ‘Crying at the Discoteque’.
Festival Coordinator Paul Ashton said “we’re delighted that Sophie Ellis-Bextor has re-signed to close this year’s festival. 2022 is set to be the best party yet”.
