‘Gold Rush Kid’
George Ezra has now officially confirmed he’ll be playing a surprise set at Glastonbury this afternoon (Sunday, 26th June).
Prior to today’s revelation, Ezra was strongly rumoured for the secret slot until Thursday (23rd June), when a laryngitis diagnosis forced him to cancel shows and threatened to compromise his anticipated secret performance.
Luckily though, the singer-songwriter has now recovered and as mentioned above, confirmed via his official Twitter account he’ll be playing the John Peel Stage at 2pm this afternoon – which will be broadcast live, online and for free right here.
George Ezra’s set had been extensively expected ever since images of the sign (shown above) were shared online via one of the Glastonbury sign painters during the Festival build.
The original shared image (seen below), depicts a sign bearing the writing ‘Gold Rush Kid’ – which is the name of his latest album, released earlier this year.

Shortly after Ezra’s announcement, Glastonbury officials also tweeted out a message confirming Jack White will also be playing a secret set today on the Park Stage at 6pm.
Our constantly updated list of Glastonbury 2022’s secret sets still has a number of empty slots spread through Sunday.
The list details the stages and times but not who the artist will be – with some of the open slots still including the BBC Introducing Stage, Strummerville and The Bimble Inn.
Yesterday afternoon, (Saturday, 25th June), we learned that Lily Allen was making her way into Glastonbury, as per an Instagram story shared on her official account.
While in the car on their way to Worthy Farm, Allen shared videos of her family and herself.
In one of those videos the singer-songwriter asks her daughter Marnie Rose if she’s “ready for Glastonbury?” – then in the following capture, shown below, Allen writes: “She thinks she’s embarrassed now… wait till I hit that stage later”.
Lily Allen then appeared on the Other Stage with Olivia Rodrigo, when they dedicated a performance of her song ‘Fuck You’ to the US Supreme Court. See the clip below.
