Candi Staton discusses the possibility of playing Glastonbury 2022

The American singer–songwriter is hopeful of returning to Worthy Farm

Candi Staton has revealed she had been asked to play Glastonbury Festival both in 2020 and in 2021 which obviously did’t come to fruition due to the coronavirus crisis.

Speaking to NME, the American singer–songwriter said: “I was supposed to go back to Glastonbury two years ago and then COVID came and destroyed all that. They asked me again last year, but COVID was still around. Hopefully next year if all goes well, I’ll be back!”

Staton played Glastonbury’s Jazz World back in 2008 for a performance that was sandwiched between Lupe Fiasco and Alabama 3.


Most recently Billie Eilish had been confirmed as the first headliner for Glastonbury 2022 and will be taking to the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night, which will make her the Festival’s youngest ever solo headliner.

With the cancellation of both Glastonbury 2020 and 2021 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.

Meanwhile, the first line-up taster for Glastonbury 2022 will probably not be unveiled by the Festival’s officials until the end of March/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 AgeDiana Ross and Elton John.

Additionally, Crowded House, have recently self-confirmed for playing Glastonbury 2022 and Noel Gallagher, said he will be up for playing if asked.
