The Australian indie electro-pop band is poised to play the Worthy Farm-held event this summer
Confidence Man have self confirmed they will be playing Glastonbury 2022.
While premiering their new video for ‘Feels Like A Different Thing’ in a YouTube chat earlier this morning (27 January), some fans messaged in expressing their hope of being able to see the band play Glastonbury this summer.
One fan said: “Crossing fingers I get to see you at Glastonbury again after discovering you in I think it was 2017”
Another expressed his hope while saying “crossed fingers for Glasto!!”
The Australian band – comprised of brother-sister duo Janet Planet and Sugar Bones – were quick to respond confirming that they will be at Glasto “with bells on”.

Confidence Man – which also double as the opening act for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – last played Glastonbury in 2017 and were officially confirmed for the bill in the Festival’s taster lineup poster when it was originally published on 12 March 2020, before its forced cancellation due to the pandemic.
2022 will see Glastonbury Festival return to Worthy Farm for the first time since 2019 after 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 at back in August of 2021.
The band’s new album ‘Tilt’ is set to drop on the 1st of April 2022, via the label ‘I OH YOU!’.
Meanwhile, as of the time of writing, Diana Ross, Billie Eilish and R.A.E are the only artists to have been officially confirmed for playing Glastonbury Festival when it returns in 2022.
Ms Ross will be taking to the Pyramid Stage for the Sunday teatime Legends Slot, while Eilish will be playing the same stage on the Friday night – which will subsequently 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, 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 Craig Charles, Black Dyke Band and Monsieur Doumani – while Noel Gallagher 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 Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th June.
Although tickets for the 2022 Festival have already sold out ahead of the 2020 cancelled event (with deposits paid for the 2020 Festival having rolled over for a second year), there are still ways to go to Glasto this summer.
Some of the opportunities include entering competitions, working at the Festival, volunteering or trying your luck in the spring resales which have yet to be officially confirmed (but will most likely take place sometime around March/April).
Please keep in mind that if and when tickets return to sale in a resale in the spring, you will need to have a festival registration to be able to buy one of these tickets.
