Now that we're about to wave goodbye to 2022, we thought we'd look at the most searched artists of the year on Skiddle. From dance music legends to the upcoming names who are set to create a big impression over the next few years, it is an eclectic mix of talent that people have been buying tickets for this year. In descending order, find out who was searched the most at the very bottom.


Fatboy Slim

We start off with a name that needs no introduction whatsoever. What can we say about Fatboy Slim? Well, not many DJs have had an impact on UK dance culture quite like him and the list of anthems he ahs released is endless. Truly a master of the mixing arts, we salute you Fatboy Slim

Sean Paul

Sean Paul's voice is instantly recognisable and he just about makes it onto this list as he had a UK tour this year that people were desperate to see. It is actually surprising to remember how many hits this man actually has, with an enviable amount of brilliant collaborators too.
