Metallica headliner on Pinkpop, Red Hot Chili Peppers Say Off

Good news and bad news for Pinkpop fans. For the 2022 edition, Metallica was announced as a second headliner. But the organization also reported on Wednesday that the Red Hot Chili Peppers are not coming to the 51st edition of the festival anyway.

Metallica closes the first festival day on Friday 17 June after Nothing But Thieves. The American rock band played Pinkpop twice before, in 2008 and 2014, before it was announced that Pearl Jam is the first headliner to Limburg, performing a day later. Red Hot Chili Peppers were also on the role, but so they don‘t come anymore. Why isn’t clear.

People who bought a ticket for this year‘s edition – who couldn’t go on because of corona – will be able to enter next year. The remaining ticket sales for Pinkpop 2022 will resume on Saturday 2 October.
