The eclectic bill includes Tanita Tikaram, McFly, Sugababes and many more…
The Field of Avalon is the first area to reveal its line-up for Glastonbury 2022.
Taking to the socials earlier today Tuesday, 12th April, Field of Avalon announced its line-up poster for this year’s event and by doing so added even more acts to the ever-growing 2022 roster.
In the announcement post which was shared this afternoon via Twitter, Field of Avalon said: “Your favourite Field returns with a bang, a hug and a Welcome Home! Our lineup for June is here for you, with love from us”.
Glastonbury Festival officials said: “For the first of our Glastonbury 2022 area/venue announcements, here’s the amazing Field of Avalon’s line-up poster for this year’s Festival!”.
Tanita Tikaram, Citizens of the World, The Damned, McFly, Imelda May, Sugababes, and Glastonbury staples Hobo Jones & The Junkyard Dogs are just some of the names announced to take to the Field of Avalon this June. See their full line-up below.
Known for its folk and roots music with a focus on the arts – boasting stages, a pub, a great range of delicious food outlets, fairground attractions, and a plethora of stalls selling books, vintage clothes, and circus paraphernalia – some would argue that Field of Avalon is kind of a festival within a festival (although coming to think about, you could say that about practically every area of Glastonbury).
This is the earliest Field of Avalon has released their line-up since the individual areas announcements began in 2015 – with previous dates being the 15th of May in 2015, the 4th of May in 2016, the 21st of April in 2017 and the 16th of April in 2019.
Meanwhile, earlier this year Glastonbury revealed its first big line-up announcement poster of the acts who will be playing at the Festival this year.
Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar will be joining previously announced headliner Billie Eilish and top the bill at this year’s event when it finally returns for the first time since 2019, after two consecutive cancellations due to the coronavirus crisis.
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.
Although the recent poster revelation added more than 70 acts to the 2022 bill, this year’s Festival announcements are far from over.
There are lots more performers and attractions wanting in the pipeline to be announced – before the full line-up plus times will finally drop around June time – as recently confirmed 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 recent artists to self-confirm for Glastonubry 2022 include 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).

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.
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.
