Godiva Festival 2022 will be held on 2-4 September in Coventry’s War Memorial Park.


The hugely popular event will once again bring incredible live music from both top name acts and local artists, as well as creative and interactive family-friendly entertainment.  To ensure the sustainability, safety and high quality of the Godiva Festival, the festival will continue to be a ticketed event this year.


Organisers are currently hard at work programming artists and attractions for the festival which, in 2021, featured more than 70 artists, including massive names such as Craig David Presents TS5, Supergrass, Sister Sledge, Fun Lovin Criminals and Sophie Ellis-Bextor


Further details about ticket announcements and the 2022 line-up will be announced in the next couple of months.


Cllr Abdul Salam Khan, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Events, said: “The success of last year’s festival, despite the challenging circumstances it was delivered in, showed the love and support people have for the event. It remains a crucial part of our city’s culture and of course bring lots of economic benefits to Coventry in terms of tourism and thousands of extra visits to the city.


“We remain committed to ensuring that Godiva continues to offer top name acts while also highlighting the immense creative and diverse talent our city has.”


Like last year, the festival will be taking place on the first weekend of September. Cllr Khan was keen to stress that this doesn’t mean that Godiva has abandoned its traditional July dates. .
