For its first ever four-day event, Balter Festival announces the Vengaboys and Squarepusher as their headliners for 2022.

Ticket holders will be allowed to set up camp on the Thursday this year before being transported to cheese-heaven via the Vengabus with Dutch Eurodance party people the Vengaboys. Following that they can take a trip back to the 90s rave scene with Squarepusher whose eradefining drum and bass will be an event to look forward to. After a hiatus, Squarepusher returns to the music scene to perform classic tracks and experimental new material to the backdrop of an impressive visual show.

Joining the 90s legends on the line up, Noisia’s record label VISION records will be hosting a stage. The VISION stage will headline Camo & Krooked, DJ Hazard, Current Value and cutting edge upcoming artists Buunshin b2b The Caracal Project, Gyrofield, Posij and Former. Other well known drum and bass names who will feature on the festival’s many stages include Break, Hedex, Dillinja, Mampi Swift, Nicky Blackmarket Rumble in the Jungle takeover ft. General Levy, Aries b2b Benny Page and Kelvin 373 & Inja.

The event, which will take place at Chepstow Racecourse from 19th to 22nd May, will be opening the gates on the Thursday for the first time ever with limited tickets available. Balter’s lineup spans a range of genres including D&B, techno, ska, punk, hip hop, jungle, hardcore, heavy metal, bassline and garage.

Balter Festival is a full on festival experience, expect to see outlandish walkabout and sideshow performances, art installations and plain bizarre forms of bingo. There will be free camping available and a range of food venues, stalls and bars on site.

The full lineup will be released on Wednesday 2nd February. 19th - 22nd May 2022, Chepstow Racecourse. For more information see
