Buster Shuffle are "super stoked" to headline Westival 2022

Westival, the world's best (in our opinion!) indoor festival, is returning to full strength for the first time in three years to the West End Centre, Aldershot on Friday 22 - Saturday 23 July.

There's all the best bits of a festival – great music, brilliant comedy, family activities, fun, laughter and grass (yes, grass) but all inside. It never rains on Westival and there's no chance of sunburn!

Topping a jam-packed bill of live music this year are British ska-punk stalwarts Buster Shuffle, who will be closing the Saturday night at Westival 2022 in their trademark rowdy style.

Ahead of taking to the Westy's stage, Buster Shuffle lead singer/pianist Jet Baker talks to Hampshire Cultural Trust about their new album Go Steady, returning to live shows after the pandemic and who would headline his dream festival. Watch the interview below now:

Founded in 2006, Westival is the place to catch big names on the up and up. Previous year's acts include Frank Turner, The Xcerts, Holy Moly and the Crackers and James Acaster.

This year's music line-up includes Friday evening headliner Luke Jackson, Jim Hammond, Orchards, China Bears, Charlotte Carpenter and many more.

Stand-up comedy will be taking over Westival's main stage on Friday evening, with headliner Laura Lexx (Live at the Apollo/Mock the Week) and Westy favourites Hundred Watt Club will be giving us burlesque 'teasers' on Saturday evening.

Saturday's afternoon session at Westival offers fun for all the family, with Natasha Cossey's Pom Pom Headwear Workshop and Joe Fleming's Circus Workshop. Plus, the West End Centre's renowned craft beer bar will be open all weekend, keeping you refreshed with a specially selected menu of keg and cask beers as well as summery ciders.

Adult tickets for Westival 2022 start at £15 per session. 14 to 25-year-olds get in for just £10 per session and children aged 13 and under go free!
