Brothers Cider is headlining as the Official Cider for Glastonbury 2022

To celebrate Brothers will be releasing its Brothers Festival Apple Cider as the main act to be served at this year’s event – in addition to a competition for the chance of winning tickets to Glastonbury 2022

Brothers Cider have now been confirmed as The Official Cider for Glastonbury 2022.

Announcing the news via their official Twitter account this afternoon (31 March), the Somerset cider company said: “We are extremely excited and proud to announce that Brothers are the Official Cider of Glastonbury Festival 2022,”.

To celebrate the news, Brothers Cider will be releasing Brothers Festival Apple Cider as the main act to be served at over 100 bars during the 5-day event, which will be available in selected stores around the country and served alongside other familiar Brothers favourites – including Wild Fruit and Toffee Apple. With no artificial flavours or ingredients, Brothers is gluten-free and vegan accredited.

“Brothers” was born in a field in Somerset and with Worthy Farm being a mere 3 miles away from their Cider Mill – local cider doesn’t get more local than that.

Michael Eavis, founder of Glastonbury Festival, said: “Local provenance and heritage is important to us, so we love having a Somerset cider producer at the festival to showcase some of the best this county has to offer.

“Brothers Cider is produced less than three miles from the festival site and we have proudly welcomed them every year for the last 27 years.

“This continuous partnership is testament to our deep-rooted connection, and we can’t wait for everyone to taste the real Somerset cider again!”

The Showering brothers are part of a cider-making dynasty that has been producing and distributing cider in Somerset for more than 15 generations. 

Matthew Showering, managing director of Showerings Cider Mill, said: “We are honoured to be returning to Glastonbury Festival this year.

“Having introduced Brothers Cider to Glastonbury back in 1995, the festival holds a special place in our hearts. This partnership is sentimental for our brand and our heritage as a local Somerset producer.

“Festivals are part of our DNA and this festival season is set to be one of celebration and people coming together again so putting our brand at the heart of these moments will not only allow us to provide a great experience to festival-goers but drive affinity with the Brothers brand.

“We can’t wait to welcome festival-goers back and bring them a season full of fun and flavour.”

Back in 2019, Glastonbury had introduced a new brand from the Showering’s Cider Mill in Somerset known as Mallets. It was offered at bars throughout Worthy Farm at that year’s Festival and replaced the long-standing Thatchers Cider as the Official Cider for Glastonbury – which up until that point had been one of the most prominent ciders on the Farm, ever since 2014.

Meanwhile, earlier this month Glastonbury revealed its first big line-up announcement poster of the acts who will be playing at the Festival this year.

Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar will be joining previously announced headliner Billie Eilish and top the bill at this year’s event when it finally returns for the first time since 2019, after two consecutive cancellations due to the coronavirus crisis.

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 in the day.

Although the recent poster revelation added more than 70 acts to the 2022 bill, this year’s Festival announcements are far from over.

There are lots more performers and attractions wanting in the pipeline to be announced – before the full line-up plus times will finally drop around June time –  as recently confirmed 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 SlimChris DiffordCarl CoxHaimCourtney Barnett, Glastonbury-staple Craig Charles and Black Dyke Band – who said they will be opening the Pyramid Stage on Sunday morning (26 June).

Other acts who have been rumoured to make an appearance at this year’s event include Candi StantonBrass AgainstThe Chemical BrothersBasil BrushThe 1975 and The Lathums.

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.

Some of the opportunities include entering competitionsworking at the Festival and volunteering.


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: – and any other site claiming to sell tickets for the Festival are not authentic.
