Running from Friday 2 to Sunday 4 September 2022 at Moseley Park and Pool, the annual event will see appearances from Jethro Tull, Dr. John Cooper Clarke, The Coral and many more. 


They join the previously publicised Supergrass, Kurt Vile, The Weather Station and Bess Atwell – who will be taking to the stage on opening night (Friday 2 September) alongside the North of England troubadour Martin Stephenson, and the quasi-psychedelic Novelty Island (aka Liverpool songwriter Tom McConnell).


Day two (Saturday 3 September) sees bluesman Seasick Steve joined by Bristol-based a cappella folk quartet The Longest Johns, who are at the forefront of the current sea shanty revival; singer-songwriter Billie Marten, whose third album, Flora Fauna, has been met with widespread acclaim; and Ruarri Joseph’s ‘swamp-grunge blues’ trio, William The Conqueror.


John Fell, Moseley Folk and Arts Festival Manager, says: “We’re very pleased to return with another varied and surprising line-up that combines well-known iconic artists – like Jethro Tull, Supergrass and The Coral – with emerging acts who are really making an impact, such as The Weather Station.


“And, of course, our bars will be well-stocked with great ales and cocktails, while a selection of great award-winning street food vendors will ensure plenty of choice on the food front.”


Meanwhile, ‘punk poet’ legend Dr. John Cooper Clarke and Vashti Bunyan (discussing her memoir, Wayward) top-line the Arts Stage, and Scottish musician Alasdair Roberts, US artist Diana Jones and folk duo Megson take to the chilled Kitchen Garden Stage.


The festival concludes on Sunday 4 September with British progressive rock luminaries Jethro Tull, returning after headlining the festival in 2009; The Coral, fresh from UK dates marking the 20th anniversary of their self-titled debut album; 


Celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2021, Moseley Folk and Arts Festival is one of the best-loved and most anticipated music and arts festivals in the region, attracting an enthusiastic and loyal audience of music fans and families to the picturesque suburban oasis of Moseley Pool and Park, Birmingham.
