Cornwall’s The Great Estate confirms Manic Street Preachers, Electric Six and The Sugarhill Gang, for June festival!

Cornwall’s Scorrier Estate will help kick off festival season in 2022, as The Great Estate Festival is running across the 4-day Jubilee weekend from 2nd to the 5th June, and they’ve not only announced their line-up but you can get tickets now!

Now in their 5th year, 2022 will see them with an increased capacity of 10,000, as they offer an exciting array of live music, entertainment and loads of fun fringe things to do. They’re like a rambunctious garden fête but on a big scale, which also includes cabaret shows, participatory workshops, magical trails, gorgeous glamping and a flair for the extraordinary.

Their massive headliner this year is the Manic Street Preachers, one of the most influential and iconic UK rock bands to have come out of Wales. With a back-catalogue that covers nearly 35 years, their sound and fan-base continues to grow, but you just know they’re the Manics when you hear them. They’ll bring songs old and new to The Great Estate, and I promise they’ll absolutely entertain you.

Also included in their line-up for the 4 days are the mighty Electric Six, The Sugarhill Gang, Grandmaster Melle Mel’s Furious 5 & Scorpio, DJ Yoda, Elektra Fence (Ru Paul’s Drag Race), Krafty Kuts, The Future Shape Of Sound, Loup Garoux (Ed Harcourt), Will & The People, ‘Oh My God! It’s The Church!’, Dick Valentine and returning once again, to the prestigious grounds of Scorrier House, festival favourite, Funk and Soul icon Craig Charles, who will undoubtedly whip the crowd into yet another high energy dancefloor frenzy. He’s the man for a great show.

Other events include The Old Time Sailors – a flashmob musical show designed to take the audience back in time through an unforgettable trip to the 19th century. Hip Hop Karaoke, Under The Canopy Cornwall, Vintage Fairground, Captain Inkus Tattoo Parlour, an onsite Traditional Barber and Comedy Hours, including a performance from BBC’s Ru Pauls Drag Race star Elektra Fence. You can even learn how to craft your own gin using foraged ingredients from around the estate with Matt Vernon of Cornish Wild Foods.

Festival favourite’s Tarquin’s Secret Gin Garden and Madame Wong’s House of Wrong return with a full line-up of music, burlesque and performances throughout the weekend and after a successful first year at the festival in 2021, Chef Ben Quinn is back with his long table feasts nestled within the woods.

There’s also calm to be found in The Sanctuary – an area for wellness and workshops for all, The Zen Den yoga tent and home to the newest stage Earth & Roots, with the full line up to be announced very soon!

Tickets start from only £65 for a three day weekend pass, or can be upgraded to include Thursday to celebrate the full four day Jubilee!
