22-20s reform for Heavenly Festival

Lincolnshire band set to play first gig in three years - and it's free

22-20s have reformed to play a free gig this September as part of the Forever Heavenly festival, which celebrates Heavenly Records‘ 18th birthday.

The band were originally signed to Heavenly, but split in January 2006.

At the time singer Martin Trimble explained: “I’m no longer comfortable with people’s perception of what we represent.”


The band will return to the stage on September 12, playing for free at London‘s Royal Festival Hall (Clore Ballroom) alongside Ed Harcourt. It is not currently clear if the show is a one-off, or part of a longer reunion.

Another ex-Heavenly band, The Rockingbirds, are also reforming for the festival.
