Eurovision 2021 winners Måneskin, or perhaps now better known as triple MTV European Music Award (EMA) nominee, winner of Best Rock Act at the MTV EMA’s and nominee at the American Music Awards, are set to have a packed 2022. Today, it was announced that they will perform at the Reading & Leeds Festival in the UK in August 2022!
Reading & Leeds Festival
The Reading & Leeds Festival is a historical event that has been going on for almost 70 years. The festival takes place concurrently in Reading and Leeds over the bank holiday weekend (26-28 August 2022.
The Reading festival is held at Little John’s Farm on Richfield Avenue and the Leeds Festival is held at Bramham Park near Wetherby. If you want to catch Måneskin, they will be performing on Friday in Reading ,and on Sunday in Leeds.
Pre-sale tickets will be available from 8am today, December 8th, but get in quick! If you miss out, there’s nothing to worry about as general tickets will then go on sale from 9am on December 10th. Tickets and further details are available here.
Månekin’s gigs and performances
Måneskin once mentioned that the one thing that they missed in 2020 was performing in front of a live audience. However, their 2022 will not be short of gigs and performances. In fact, in August 2022, they will be part of a stellar line up at the Reading Leeds Festival! See here for the full line up in Reading, and here for the line up in Leeds.
Måneskin’s appearance at the Reading Leeds Festival comes after a long year of gigs throughout Europe in 2022. This also includes a special appearance in Brazil at the Rock in Rio. Who could have known that at the time of winning Eurovision 2021, or even placing 2nd in X-Factor Italy in 2017, that the charismatic and talented four-piece band would soon perform alongside the likes of Artic Monkeys, Halsey, Bastille, Megan Thee Stallion and many more?
There is no doubt that Måneskin’s success has been monumental. Whilst all of us want them to stay grounded and rested, these gigs present an opportunity of a lifetime. After culminating 2 billion streams and 98.4 million listeners on Spotify Wrapped this year, their success appears to be only beginning.
