Fans of music festivals, take note: Radio 2 Live 2022 is expanding its footprint by going from London’s Hyde Park to Leeds’ Temple Newsam Park.
The radio station’s annual music festival will relocate to the north and double in size as a consequence, with more than 20 acts due to be announced in June, including some of the ‘world’s most popular musicians,’ according to the radio station.
On Saturday and Sunday, September 17 and 18, the event, which was once a one-day festival and included famous artists such as Elton John, Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys, Take That, and Lenny Kravitz, will converge on the enormous park in West Yorkshire for two days.
It definitely seems like it’ll give major festivals like Glastonbury, Reading, and Leeds, as well as Wireless, a run for their money!
The Radio 2 DJ Tent will make its debut, with DJs ‘playing iconic Motown hits from the 1960s to the current day.’
‘It’s official!’ said DJ Zoe Ball while announcing the news. The news is out, and I can tell you that the whole Radio 2 family is looking forward to being in LEEDS for R2 Live this year.
‘We’re gearing up for two days of dancing and singing with our incredible listeners and some incredible live acts.’ I’m really looking forward to getting my groove on in the Radio 2 DJ Tent!’
In September, Radio 2 Live 2022 will perform in Temple Newsam Park in Leeds! ðŸŽ‰
The event is expanding, and on September 17th and 18th, we’ll be giving you two days of live music from your favorite artists.TM

‘Following our month of fantastic Piano Room concerts in February, we’re happy that Radio Live will be staged in Leeds, one of the great towns of the North,’ said Jeff Smith, Head of Music for Radio 2. We can’t wait for us all to join at Temple Newsam for two days of fantastic music that will bring everyone together to feel terrific!’
‘We’re really delighted to bring Radio 2 Live to Temple Newsam and for residents in Leeds to be able to look forward to performances by world-class performers on their doorstep,’ said Leeds City Council leader Councillor James Lewis.
‘Over the years, Leeds has hosted some of the greatest names in music, so it’s fantastic to see the city continuing that proud heritage and to be collaborating with the organizers to bring another important and unique event to Leeds.’

Radio 2 Live will be aired on the network and will be accessible on Sounds and iPlayer both live and on demand.
The move is part of the’s ongoing strategy to expand towards the North and away from London.
After two years of cancellations owing to the Covid epidemic, music lovers may breathe a sigh of relief this year as the bulk of their favorite festivals have returned.
Glastonbury returns in June with Billie Eilish, Sir Paul McCartney, and Kendrick Lamar as headliners, while Reading and Leeds returns in August with Arctic Monkeys and Dave on the lineup.
