Newark Showground

17 - 19 June 2022

Unlocked Fest, the UK’s newest music festival, has announced an incredible line-up of artists, bands and DJs for its 2022 event, including Ministry of Sound Classical, Heather Small, The Feeling, Go West, Craig Charles, Inner City, Five, Space, Republica, Phats and Small, Big Brovaz, Dario G, and many more. The festival - the first of its kind in Nottinghamshire – celebrates some of the best music from the 80s, 90s and 00s, promising three days of fun and cherished moments at Newark Showground.

The three-day event will not only provide festival goers with the chance to relive the sounds of summers past but will be bringing a fresh new dimension to your usual festival experience with carefully considered attention to detail and emphasis on making every moment seamless.

Expect the highest standard of food and drink, broad entertainment offerings and a lovingly crafted festival site that has been designed with convenience and ease in mind. With parking close to pitches, carefully laid out (mud free) campsites, exquisite glamping and a good supply of services and facilities, the organisers are making everything easy so that the music and partying really do take centre stage.

The ultimate feel good weekender, Unlocked Fest will combine a heady mix of well-known headliners, top DJs and tribute acts across its three stages, with artisan food and drink vendors, a traditional funfair, games zone, roaming entertainers, late night silent disco, and many more surprises in store.

A number of VIP upgrades and glamping accommodation are available directly from the festival website.

Accessible tickets are available to purchase directly through Gigantic.
