The Charlatans to headline Signals Festival UK 2022

SIGNALS Festival – the totally unique one-day festival with headline act THE CHARLATANS is delighted to announce line-up additions inc. THIS IS THE KIT, FIONA BEVAN, CRICH BRASS, RIDING THE LOW, THE ROSADOCS, CATMILK, SHADOWS OF A SILHOUETTE, MELONADE, ALT BLK ERA, ESTELLA, ISAAC NEILSON and FELLOW BRAVES, taking place on Saturday 11th June 2022, at Crich Tramway Village, Derbyshire, celebrating music of the future in a world of the past.

Debuting in 2022, SIGNALS offers festival-goers a different kind of experience, stepping back in time to the Victorian village and light-transit-enthusiast-nirvana of Derbyshire’s Crich Tramway Village. A neat one-day bash, it’s that most British of institutions – the summer day trip – turned up to 11.

Festival-goers will find themselves in the heart of one of England’s best-kept secrets, the picturesque Derwent Valley. Home of Crich Tramway Village, a unique and beautiful venue set in the Derbyshire countryside.

We’ve been planning this for three years now and the result is something really unique that we’re proud of. Where else can you get a vintage tram ride across the Festival site?! Now we just can’t wait for everyone to come and enjoy what we’ve been planning.  We fell in love with this charming venue as soon as we saw it, so to be able to programme some of our favourite established artists, alongside some incredible emerging talent that we’ve unearthed locally in the regions, is something very special for us.  Expect a beautiful and relaxed setting, where you can take time to explore the Victorian village, before hopping on a tram up to the music stages.

It’s really a perfect setting for a festival with THE CHARLATANS at its heart. Because they, too, have always been a bit different – too Cheshire to truly be Manchester; cool older brothers of the Britpop kids; survivors of the landfill years. Now, with their seminal album Tellin’ Stories celebrating its 25th anniversary, they remain in a league of their own, a band whose own story is one of triumph over tragedy and tenacity over turbulence. And now: trams. Their headline set is sure to be the ultimate experience for fans. Plus! SIGNALS will mark a very rare occasion where you can catch THE CHARLATANS and TIM BURGESS (solo) in the same day.
