Featuring a run of unmissable takeover slots at Shangri-La’s Truth Stage
Earache has announced its full line-up for the ‘Earache Takeover’ at this summer’s Glastonbury Festival.
Following on from their previous successful Shangri-La collaborations, including The Earache Express in 2017 and The Scum Stage in 2019, Earache Records is bringing a run of unmissable takeover slots to Shangri-La’s Truth Stage for 2022.
The takeover will feature performances from the genre-smashing Nova Twins, doom-punk maestros Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, punk-grime trailblazers Bob Vylan, larger-than-life brass rock outfit Brass Against and Earache’s own pioneering ragga metal signing Dub War, featuring Benji Webbe of Skindred.
The full line-up poster including set times can be found below.

Chris Tofu MBE, Shangri-La’s music director, said: “Earache are a complete fit to the ethos and worldview of Shangri-La’s, always experimenting and always pushing against injustice in the mainstream. We LOVE these guys and what they have brought to us!”
Tom Hadfield, Earache Records’ Head of Live, says of the takeover: “We’ve all waited a long time for this to come around & couldn’t be more buzzing to get back in the field. We love the spirit of Shangri La and their punk rock attitude, it’s a perfect match with Earache’s DIY/Punk roots and we’ve tried to book bands with a similar mindset.”
The takeover will be spread over Shangri-La’s Thursday, Friday and Saturday night sets on the Truth Stage, located in the South-East corner of Glastonbury.
Earache proudly broke the mould at Glastonbury 2017 by presenting The Earache Express – a tube carriage (or two) built into a metal structure to host… well, metal. On proud display in Shangri-La, the festival’s first real foray into heavy music included hosting original noiseniks Napalm Death, allowing scantily clad lunatics HO99O9 to run amok and unleashing Glastonbury’s most punk moment in years in the form of a fiery set by Dead Kennedys. Watch the video from the BBC of that year below.
In other Glasto-news:
Co-op confirmed the return of its pop-up store for Glastonbury Festival 2022, and the official Glastonbury Festival app from EE, which according to an official statement by EE was originally due to be released on Monday, the 6th of June, finally went live on Android on the 7th of June – and after a slight lunch delay, saw the iPhone version be released one day later, on the 8th of June.
Meanwhile, last month saw BBC reveal its coverage plans for this month’s Glastonbury Festival, which will mark the first time the Beeb has broadcast any music event in Ultra High Definition.
Another exciting announcement which was revealed last 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.
Speaking of the new map, we also have a newly renovated and updated comprehensive Glasto Camping Guide which you can view here.
Stella McCartney’s War Child vest:
In 2007, Stella McCartney designed a limited-edition vest which was sold for charity at that year’s Glastonbury Festival.
The design, which features a blue sky, green field and psychedelic rainbow, was inspired by the Seventies airbrushed t-shirts her Mum and Dad used to get made.
The vest has since gone on to become a rare collector’s item, but a recent warehouse audit unveiled several boxes of vests which had not been sold.
Last month (26th May), Glastonbury revealed a limited edition upcycled vest designed by Stella McCartney. Staying true to her ethos and principles to reduce the impact on our planet, the original vests have now been upcycled and repurposed with a new mushroom artwork celebrating fungi as the future of fashion and our planet.
These limited edition vests are on sale now via Glastonbury’s official online shop, with all proceeds going to War Child’s Emergency Fund– helping children in Ukraine and other conflicts.
Although the full Glastonbury 2022 line-up including the set times breakdown was revealed last month (30th May), posters for dedicated stages and attractions have continued to be shared on social media as well as on the official Glastonbury website.
Block9 was the seventeenth area to announce its individual line-up poster (on the 27th of May) for this year’s Festival.
Cineramageddon announced its individual line-up poster on the 25th of May, while West Holts revealed its lineup poster on the 24th of May – and Unfairground theirs on the 20th of May, just one day after The Park area which came on the 19th of May.
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 the 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.
Glastonbury 2022 is set to take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th June.
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.
