Hopkins will take to the main stage on Friday 17th for a midnight party appearance, complete with spectacular live visuals to get the Body and Soul 2022 party started.

The festival is further delighted to confirm that Jon Hopkins will take part in a live panel event on the festival’s Woodland Stage earlier on Friday evening. A conversation with Hopkins, ecologist, and writer Dr. Sam Gandy of the Centre for Psychedelic Research at Imperial College London, and Irish Shaman, John Cantwell, ‘Awakenings: Psychedelics, Healing & Nature’ will explore the role that psychedelics can play in elevating consciousness, awakening the potential for a deeper connection with nature and the wider implications this has for human wellbeing and the biosphere.

And Hopkins isn’t the only fabulous new addition to the lineup! Body and Soul have also revealed that the Mother DJs will be stealing the stage with their legendary queer disco, featuring a show-stopping takeover.
