19 new acts for Pinkpop 2022!

American rock band Imagine Dragons is the third headliner for the 51st edition of Pinkpop! On Sunday 19 June 2022 they will be the closing act of the festival weekend. No less than 18 other acts have been added to our line-up, that already includes Metallica, Pearl Jam, Twenty One Pilots and Nothing But Thieves.

On Friday the festival will welcome symphonic metal band Nightwish, led by Floor Jansen; they will perform at Pinkpop for the first time. There is an abundance of Dutch talent that day: Danny Vera, Froukje and Elle Hollis, winner of ‘Nu of Nooit’, will all make their debut at the Pinkpop stage. The Pretty Reckless will bring additional guitar power to Landgraaf.

On Saturday we will welcome the British rock duo Royal Blood, nu-metal greats the Deftones, who reconfirmed, and the Australian masters of the sing-a-long: Crowded House. On this second festival day, there will surely be a lot of dancing during the live-set Belgian DJ Lost Frequencies. Ronnie Flex & The Fam as well as born performers Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes are sure to raise the roof! And, last but not least, we added Australian indie-darling Courtney Barnett to our line-up.

For Sunday the popular rock band Queens of the Stone Age have confirmed their appearance. In addition, there are three acts making their debut at Pinkpop that day: legendary disco-funk producer Nile Rodgers & CHIC, American post-punk band Interpol, and Eefje de Visser, who recently released her fantastic album ‘Bitterzoet’. Swedish pop singer Zara Larsson and the Irish rock band Inhaler also confirmed their performances on this final festival day.
