Cineramageddon first made its debut at the 2017 edition of the Festival – Curated by director Julien Temple, the drive-in cinema boasts state of the art projection, the biggest cinema screen in Britain and an auditorium courtesy of artist Joe Rush featuring over sixty mutated vintage American and British cars, repurposed funfair rides and a Lear jet.
2017 also saw Hollywood star Johnny Depp make an appearance at Glastonbury to introduce his 2004 film The Libertine, while 2019 featured a DJ set from Fatboy Slim after the World Premiere of Ibiza – The Silent Movie (seen in the short video clip below).
Glastonbury’s individual area announcements have been coming in thick and fast for the last couple of months now.
With Cineramageddon being the sixteenth and most recent area to announce its individual line-up poster (on the 25th of May) for this year’s Festival, we are now expecting at least two more areas still to come – in the form of Block 9 and Pilton Palais.
The Kidzfield revelation came on the 16th of May, just three days after Croissant Neuf‘s on the 13th, and followed announcements from Acoustic Stage and The Glade – on the 12th and the 11th of the month, respectively.
Late-night areas The Common and – Shangri-La also released their line-ups, on the 6th and the 4th of May, respectively. In addition to the Left Field line-up that was revealed on Tuesday morning, the 3rd of May.
Other key stories from last month’s string of announcements included confirmation that Arcadia’s iconic fire-breathing Spider will be returning to the Festival in 2022 – following planning issues with the Pangea crane, which had replaced the Spider in 2019 but will not be featured at this year’s event.
And finally, Field of Avalon was the first area to announce its dedicated line-up poster for 2022 on Tuesday, the 12th of April.
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 artists to self-confirm for Glastonubry 2022 include Go-A, 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).

Another exciting announcement of sorts which was revealed earlier this month included the new Glastonbury 2022 map, which featured lots of interesting changes and improvements to the site grounds ahead of the Festival this 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 – with one of them being entering competitions.

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.
