Forbidden Forest Festival reveals new location for 2022 edition

Forbidden Forest reveals new location for 2022 edition

Following the phase 1 lineup announcement back in November, Forbidden Forest organisers have now revealed the previously undisclosed location for this July.

The camping festival is set to take place in the stunning surroundings of Belvoir Castle (and Forest) in Grantham, UK.

Now in its 7th year for 2022, the underground-focussed event has invited some of the most in-demand DJ/producers, with genres spanning house, techno, drum & bass, disco and other electronic.

With more to come (and whilst it depends what you’re into), some of the artists include Basement Jaxx [DJ set], Adam Beyer, Hybrid Minds, Shy FX, Andy C, Jamie Jones, Alan Fitzpatrick, Sub Focus, Patrick Topping, Gorgon City and Marco Carola (see full list below).

2022 will also see fans getting to experience the festival in a brand new way as the now 2-day weekend will, for the first time ever, offer on-site camping at its new home.

As spaces for dance music are continually threatened, the location is designed to bring the original rave vibe back to the UK.

Forbidden Forest Festival 2022 will take place on Saturday 2nd + Sunday 3rd July. Tickets are now on sale starting at approx £100. Grab your full weekend passes, with or without camping, from Festicket.

The new location is situated on the outskirts of Grantham on the border between Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire at the historic Belvoir Castle, set within 16,000 acres of forest and dense woodland.
