Incineration festival may have tragically been put off twice down to the global pandemic, but the extreme metal festival’s organisers have worked tirelessly to ensure fans won’t be disappointed by securing a combination of the incredible acts previously planned for the 2020 and 2021 editions once again for 2022.

Norwegian black metal pioneers Emperor are primed and ready to cast a mighty dark shadow over Camden, headlining the event for their sole UK show of 2022. 

Ihsahn and co will be joined by extreme metal supergroup Bloodbath as well as black metal heavyweights Dark Funeral and Tsjuder for an unmissable and eagerly anticipated extreme metal blow-out three years in the making!

More acts confirmed for 2022’s edition include London’s very own Akercocke, Spanish extremists Noctem, melo-deathers October Tide, California old-school death metallers Skeletal Remains and the brutal Unfathomable Ruination, plus many more bands yet to be announced.

2022 will see the festival level-up for their seventh edition, adding London’s prestigious Roundhouse to their Camden-based string of venues, which also include the Electric Ballroom, Underworld and the Black Heart. 

The last edition of Incineration, back in 2019, saw a formidable line-up that included Mayhem reigning terror upon Camden alongside Septicflesh, Carpathian Forest, Shining, Benediction, ASPHYX and Winterfylleth. 

Tickets are still available for the modest price of £66.60 and are sure to sell out – so grab yours now to avoid disappointment.
