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.
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.
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.
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, in addition to the constant rumours, there are also many artists who ‘self-confirm’ prior to the official announcements by divulging the news during interviews, via social media or website listings.
