Nocturne Live

When is Nocturne Live 2022?

Nocturne Live will be taking place between Wednesday 15 June and Saturday 18 June 2022.

What to expect from Nocturn Live

Nocturne Live turns The Great Court at Blenheim Palace into a grand arena, as befits the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Nocturne Live invites world-class acts, building a stage and putting out 7,000 seats to bring live music back to the palace after a decade-long hiatus.

Nocturne Live is making its mark on the summer music map. The event can be an all-day affair with VIP dining in the famous State Rooms, a stroll in the palace’s vast grounds or a waterside picnic. It can also be an evening gig for those who just want to buy a ticket to hear their favourite live music, and nothing else.

This year's line-up:

  • Wednesday 15 June – Simply Red, The Brand New Heavies, Marisha Wallace
  • Thursday 16 June – David Gray, James Morrison, Nerina Pallot
  • Friday 17 June – UB40 feat. Ali Campbell, Maxi Priest, Aswad, Cleveland Watkiss
  • Saturday 18 June – Simple Minds, Deacon Blue, Caezar
