The three-sister band will be returning to Worthy Farm this June
Haim have now confirmed they will be playing Glastonbury Festival when it finally returns this summer.
Breaking the news on social media this evening (25th February), Media and Arts Correspondent for ITV News, Nina Nannar, revealed the news via her official Twitter account saying: “Alana Haim has confirmed that her band with her sisters Haim are playing Glastonbury this year”.
The news comes after already strong rumours have recently been circling the web due to a source reportedly telling The Sun newspaper that the American folk-pop trio will perform before Noel Gallagher – who is also said to be pencilled in on the line-up for playing the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday of Glastonbury, just before the headliner.

The Los Angeles based band – comprised of three sisters, Este (bass guitar and vocals), Danielle (lead vocals, guitar, and drums), and Alana Haim (guitars, keyboards, and vocals) – were featured in the original Glastonbury 2020 poster and poised to play the Festival before it was forced to cancel for two consecutive years due to coronavirus.
Haim last played Glastonbury’s Other Stage in 2017 as well as in 2014. They also performed on the iconic Pyramid Stage back in 2013.
Meanwhile, Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has recently confirmed that the first line-up poster will be released in March, with individual area line-ups to follow – before the full line-up plus times will finally drop in June.
As of the time of writing, Diana Ross, Billie Eilish, R.A.E, Little Simz (who is set to headline the West Holts Stage) and most recently The Strays are the only artists to have been officially confirmed for playing Glastonbury Festival when it returns in 2022.
Ms Ross will be taking to the Pyramid Stage for the Sunday teatime Legends Slot, while Eilish will be playing the same stage on the Friday night – which will subsequently make her the Festival’s youngest ever solo headliner.
That being 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 Courtney Barnett, Confidence Man, 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, Harry Styles, Primal Scream, Basil Brush, The 1975, The Lathums, Foals and Wolf Alice – who were once of the first bands to be confirmed for the 2020 Festival before it was forced to cancel due to the worldwide pandemic.

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 already sold out ahead of the 2020 cancelled event (with deposits paid for the 2020 Festival having rolled over for a second year), there are still ways to go to Glasto this summer.
Some of the opportunities include entering competitions, working at the Festival, volunteering or trying for tickets in the spring resales – which have now been confirmed to take place at the end of March.
