The New York-based collective seem to be poised for a performance at Worthy Farm in 2022
Brass Against have seemingly let it slip that they will be playing Glastonbury 2022.
Announcing the remainder of their Spring/Summer 2022 European Tour dates earlier today (November 5) via a poster that was posted on the band’s social media channels – one eagle-eyed fan spotted an additional gig date at ‘Glastonbury’ that was not included in the poster announcement.
Posting his findings on Twitter, fan Matt Glossop said: “When you realise the Leeds Brass Against gig is now on the night you travel to Glasto… then spot the Saturday [June 25] gig!”
After realising the revelation, and in an attempt to put the cat bag in the bag – later in the day, the Brass Against website had appeared to have gone through an update to omit the previously spotted* ‘Glastonbury’ (June 25) tour date. See the series of tweets describing the chain of events below.

It looks as if the #BrassAgainst website has now been updated to omit the previously spotted* ‘#Glastonbury‘ (June 25) tour date, which was adroitly spotted earlier today by @Jinja_Owl…

Meanwhile, Billie Eilish is the first headliner to be officially confirmed for playing Glastonbury 2022 and will be taking to the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night, which will subsequently make her the Festival’s youngest ever solo headliner.
2022 will see Glastonbury Festival return to Worthy Farm for the first time since 2019, and with the cancellation of both the 2020 and 2021 events due to the coronavirus crisis, one could speculate that a lot of the acts which had been booked for 2020 will roll over to 2022 – As Festival founder Michael Eavis hinted back in August that the “big names” who were set to play at Glastonbury in 2020 are being lined up for next year’s event.
The first line-up poster taster for Glastonbury 2022 will probably not be unveiled by the Festival’s officials until February / March (or perhaps even the beginning of April), with the full line-up usually being unveiled towards the end of May.
That being said, there are many artists who ‘self-confirm’ prior to the official announcements, by divulging the news during interviews, via social media or website listings.
The most recent big-scale artists added to the Glasto Rumour Mill include Queens of the Stone Age, in addition to Crowded House which have confirmed themselves for a performance at the 2022 event, and Noel Gallagher who said he will be up for playing if asked.

Glastonbury 2022 is set to take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from 22nd – 26th June 2022
