This will be the Australian band’s first appearance at Worthy Farm since 2008
Appearing on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch earlier today (June 6), Finn revealed that the band was set for a performance at the now cancelled Glastonbury 2021 as part of the band’s 2021 tour while confirming that it has now all been moved into 2022 – saying: “We’ve had a tour booked for the last two summers, which is actually sold out and is now intact and coming next June , we’ve transferred everything, including a Glastonbury appearance and some Roundhouse shows in London […] so yeah, we are coming, as soon as we possibly can, it’s taken 2 years once we get there…”
This would be the second time that the Australian band has “let it slip” that they are Worthy Farm bound, with the first being in 2020 when the rockers’ artist management event tour page website appeared to show them as being scheduled for playing “Glastonbury, Pilton, UK” on “Saturday, June 27, 2020”.
You can watch the full interview with Neil Finn (available for the next 30 days) from around the 00:21:14 timestamp – Glastonbury is mentioned approx 00:27:45 in here.
Meanwhile, rumours of Diana Ross possibly being set to play Glastonbury 2022 have recently intensified following the American singer / actress rescheduled UK tour dates.
Although yet to be officially confirmed, it is more than likely that the ex Supremes singer will be playing the Sunday Teatime Legends Slot at next year’s Glastonbury Festival in 2022 – as she was the first major act confirmed for what would have been Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary back in 2020, which was sadly cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
With no Glastonbury taking place on Worthy Farm for a second consecutive year in 2021, Michael and Emily Eavis are inviting campers, for one year only, to experience the farm in a way they’ve never been able to before – in Worthy Pastures – a family-friendly campsite at Worthy Farm which will take place later this summer.
