Arctic Monkeys have a busy summer ahead, with headline performances scheduled for Reading & Leeds 2022 and Ireland’s Electric Picnic 2022.

The Sheffield band – who are said to have “pretty much finished” their long-awaited seventh album – have also recently announced a string of European headline dates as well as various festival shows including at Sziget Festival, Cala Mijas, Rock En Seine and the inaugural Primavera Sound Los Angeles.

They are also set to headline this year’s Life Is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas alongside Lorde and Gorillaz from September 16-18. Tickets are available here.

Jack Harlow, Calvin Harris, Cage The Elephant, Migos, and Beach House are also topping the neon city festival’s bill. The massive line-up also promises sets from Charli XCX, Sam Fender, Rico Nasty, Wet Leg, and OutKast‘s Big Boi.

Life Is Beautiful recently took home the prize for Best Festival In The World at the BandLab NME Awards 2022.

After taking a year off due to COVID in 2020, the festival made a triumphant return in 2021 with headliners Tame ImpalaGreen Day and Billie Eilish.

Meanwhile, Arctic Monkeys also recently shared their support for iconic Sheffield venue, The Leadmill, after the venue announced it was facing threat of closure next year due to its landlord issuing a notice of eviction.

The band helped raise over £100,000 for the venue to survive COVID closures last year by raffling off one of Alex Turner‘s guitars.
