FESTIVAL NEWS : Riverside Festival announce second wave of artists for 2022 – Robert Hood, Helena Hauff, Joseph Capriati, Big Freedia, HAAi, ANNA, Optimo added + more”

Riverside Festival has today revealed the second wave of artists joining the bill for what is set to be an unforgettable 2022 event. Robert Hood, Helena Hauff, Joseph Capriati, Big Freedia, HAAi, ANNA, Derrick Carter, Chippy Nonstop, Bambounou, Joy Orbison, KiNK and Optimo are amongst the names who will be joining previously announced headliners Charlotte De Witte, Carl Cox and Róisín Murphy for a three-day celebration of the best in cutting edge electronic music.

Renowned  DJ, curator and founder of Glasgow’s number one inclusive and alternative queer party Shoot Your Shot, Bonzai Bonner, has been working closely with RF to curate the Saturday line-up which will be an alliance with the festival and the LGBTQ+ community in Scotland. Bringing a programme of artists that reflects the SYS ethos: a truly ‘anything goes’ environment more focused on bringing freedom, energy and most importantly the F-U-N of after-parties and raves back into club and festival spaces. The only Scottish club night to be nominated for last year’s DJ Mag ‘Best of British – Best Club Event’’, SYS is now firmly established as one of the most outstanding club experiences in Scotland.

Organisers have also confirmed that, following last year’s success, the Satellite Stage will be returning to RF22 for the second time. Dedicated to showcasing the diversity and abundance of up-and-coming homegrown talent Glasgow is renowned for, the Satellite Stage will take fans on a journey of musical discovery across the city’s flourishing underground music scene.
