Aled Jones and Russell Watson headline Llangollen 2022


* Aled Jones.

* Russell Watson.

* Anoushka Shankar.

* Manu Delago. 

Star singers Aled Jones and Russell Watson headline at next year's Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod which will see a return to live events following a two-year gap caused by the pandemic.

Organisers say the festival says the 2022 programme is "packed with competitions, concerts and celebrations galore" for its 75th anniversary, with priority and public booking opening in time for Christmas.

The festival will also feature a new digital hybrid format, allowing competitors to enter and perform on the Llangollen Pavilion stage, regardless of their location around the globe. 

Llangollen’s new executive producer, Camilla King, who joined the organisation in November, said: “It’s an honour to be able to announce the wonderful news that we will return to live music-making in July 2022. 

"In this time of challenges and change, and as we prepare to celebrate our 75th anniversary, our founding principles of promoting peace through the universal languages of music and dance have rarely felt more important or relevant.”

The 2022 concert programme opens on Thursday July 7 with two of the classical world’s vocal powerhouses, Aled Jones and Russell Watson, who perform together in Llangollen for the first time.

On Friday July 8, Grammy Award winning sitar player Anoushka Shankar teams up with her friend and collaborator Manu Delago and the strings of the Britten Sinfonia for a Llangollen debut.  

The performance includes highlights from Anouska’s catalogue in new orchestral arrangements and works from Manu’s extraordinary percussion oeuvre. 

Details of the 2022 Llanfest headliner and main stage support acts are coming soon, with an emphasis on celebrating homegrown Welsh talent, say organisers.
