Including “dance classes every day, top Latin bands & party every night”…
Glasto Latino has revealed details of its line-up for Glastonbury 2022.
Announcing the news this afternoon (Monday, 25th April), Glastonbury Festival said: “After the success of our move to the West Holts Field in 2019, Glasto Latino is back with a bang in 2022, once again offering our spicy recipe of night-time Latin fiestas and daytime dance classes.”
The live bands featured on the poster include Indira Román and Ají Pa’ Ti, Cimafunk and Telmary & Habanasana while on Saturday, three of Europe’s biggest names in Latin music come together in a “special line-up for Glasto Latino”. Edwin Sanz (percussion), Alex Wilson (piano) and Omar Puente (violin) will appear together with a hand-picked orchestra.
Meanwhile, as it stands, in addition to Glasto Latino – Field of Avalon and Silver Hayes are the only other areas to have revealed their line-up posters ahead of this year’s event.
Earlier this year Glastonbury revealed its first big line-up announcement poster of the acts who will be playing at the Festival this summer.
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).
Other acts who have been rumoured to make an appearance at this year’s event include Candi Stanton, Brass Against, The Chemical Brothers, Basil Brush, The 1975, Harry Styles and The Lathums.

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.
Some of the opportunities include entering competitions, working at the Festival and volunteering.
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.
