Muse To Headline Berlin’s Tempelhof Sounds Festival
Muse and The Strokes will headline Berlin’s inaugural Tempelhof Sounds Festival in 2022.
The event takes place at the German capital’s disused Tempelhof Airport – which ceased operating back in 2008 – between June 10 and June 12 next year. Tickets are now available from €79 (£67.25).
Joining Muse and The Strokes are the likes of Wolf Alice, Alt-J, Interpol, London Grammar, IDLES, Royal Blood, Mac DeMarco, Parcels and Fontaines DC. According to organisers, a third headliner is to be revealed “soon”.
“We are very excited to make this special festival format possible in the capital together with our partners,” said Stephan Thanscheidt, CEO of FKP Scorpio. “Our guests can expect an event that combines top international acts with an extraordinary open-air experience.”
Further down the initial line-up are rising acts Holly Humberstone, Griff and Baby Queen, who will join Anna Calvi, Black Honey and Big Thief across the three days.
The Strokes will also perform at both editions of Primavera Sound 2022, the second of which takes place on the same weekend as Tempelhof Sounds. Julian Casablancas and co. will then return to the UK for performances at TRNSMT and Lancashire’s Lytham Festival in July.
Elsewhere in Muse news, Matt Bellamy’s outfit are scheduled to headline next year’s Isle Of Wight Festival alongside Kasabian and Lewis Capaldi.
After holding its delayed 2021 edition this month (September 17-19), the festival then quickly announced dates and ticket details for its 2022 festival. Next year, the event is set to return to its traditional dates of mid-June, and the first wave of names for its line-up have been announced.
Joining Muse, Kasabian and Capaldi at the top of the bill will be Lionel Richie (co-headlining with Muse on Friday, June 17) and Pete Tong and the Heritage Orchestra’s lauded Ibiza Classics show (alongside Kasabian on the Saturday night).
