The Festival’s home to blues, folk, contemporary and country music…
The Acoustic Stage is the tenth Glastonbury area to have its line-up revealed ahead of this year’s anticipated Festival.
After The Glade’s line-up announcement just yesterday – the Acoustic Stage has now had its line-up poster (seen below) released by Glastonbury Festival’s social channels this morning (Thursday, 12th May).
Dubbed as “the home to blues, folk, contemporary and country music” – for 2022 the Acoustic Stage will welcome back tent favourites Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott on the Friday (24th), The Waterboys on the Saturday (25th), and Suzanne Vega on the Sunday (26th).
Newcomers to the tent will include 49th & Main, Tom Webber, and 2022 ETC winner Lewis McLaughlin – alongside many more wonderful acts listed in the poster below.
Debuting in 1984, the Acoustic Field has been welcoming crowds trooping up the hill to hear acoustic, song-based music – or at times, simply to visit the sanctuary of the tent and avoid the rain or scorching sun.
Last month, it had been confirmed that Arcadia’s iconic fire-breathing Spider will be returning to the Festival following planning issues with the Pangea crane, which had replaced the Spider in 2019.
2022 will be the first year to see Glastonbury take place since 2019, after two consecutive cancellations due to the coronavirus crisis – both in 2020 and 2021.
Meanwhile, the first main line-up announcement poster revelation, shown below, dropped in March of this year.
As seen in the poster above, Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar will be joining previously announced headliner Billie Eilish to top the bill at this year’s event.
Eilish will be playing the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night – and by doing so make history as the youngest ever solo artist to headline the Festival at only 20-years-old.
Another historic moment will occur when Sir Paul McCartney takes to the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday night – which will subsequently make him the oldest Glastonbury headliner at 80-years-old.
Diana Ross will likewise be performing on the Pyramid Stage for the Sunday Teatime Legends Slot, while Lamar will be headlining the same stage later that evening.
A platter of performers and attractions which have yet to be announced are still waiting in the pipeline to be revealed before the full line-up + times should finally drop around June time – as recently confirmed on Twitter by Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis.
That said, there are many artists who confirm themselves prior to the official announcements by divulging the news during interviews, via social media, or website listings.
Some of the recent artists to self-confirm for Glastonubry 2022 include Fatboy Slim, Chris Difford, Carl Cox, Haim, Courtney Barnett, Glastonbury-staple Craig Charles and Black Dyke Band – who said they will be opening the Pyramid Stage on Sunday morning (26 June).

Glastonbury 2022 is set to take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th June.
Although tickets for the 2022 Festival have now completely sold out, there are still ways to go to Glasto this summer.
DON’T BE FOOLED:
Glastonbury Festival would very much like fans to be aware that there are people out there who will try and sell fake Glastonbury tickets to unsuspecting, willing and innocent potential purchasers.
Although Glasto-veterans who have been going to the Festival for quite some time may recognise these scams for what they are, newcomers to the Festival might not know that tickets are only sold on one site which is: glastonbury.seetickets.com – and any other site claiming to sell tickets for the Festival are not authentic.
