The legendary funk and soul DJ will be heading down to Worthy Farm in 2022, as always…
Regular Glastonbury-staple Craig Charles has confirmed that he will be playing an epic set Glastonbury’s Shangri-La this summer.
Confirming the news earlier today (January 12), in response to a text from a fan on his BBC Radio 6 Music show – which said sh’s looking forward to seeing him play Glastonbury this year – Charles replied: “Of course, I’ll be there! Fridays… lunchtime… epic set… Shangri-La… We’ll be there, we always are.”
The legendary DJ and his acclaimed ‘Funk & Soul Club’ last played Glastonbury’s Shangri-La’s Truth Stage, Arcadia’s Bug and The Rabbit Hole’s Funkinghum Palace back in 2019.
Charles, who has a show on BBC Radio 6 is a Worthy Farm regular and always draws a massive crowd as can be seen in the images below – taken from his performance at Shangri-La’s Truth Stage at Glastonbury 2017.

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.
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 – 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.
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 ‘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 Age, in addition to Crowded House which have confirmed themselves for a performance at the 2022 event, and Noel Gallagher who said he will be up for playing if asked.
