“Love On Tour”
Harry Styles has announced the new dates for his 2022 Love On Tour in the UK, and by doing so, inevitably fuelling rumours of a possible Glastonbury performance this summer.
The former One Direction star has managed to maintain a hugely successful solo career with multiple chart-topping singles, a recent US tour and recently also being named one of the headliners for Coachella 2022 – alongside Billie Eilish and Ye (formerly known as Kanye West).
Looking closer at Harry’s new UK tour dates – which include rescheduled dates initially postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, as well as several new shows and his first-ever stadiums – one could definitely notice the Glasto-shaped gap.
Styles is scheduled to play Dublin, Ireland on Wednesday, the 22nd of June and then Humburg, Germany on Sunday, the 26th of June.
This means that if he were to play Glastonubry 2022 (as a headliner) it would most likely be on the Saturday, which is the 25th of June – as Billie Eilish will be taking to the Pyramid Stage on the Friday (24 June).
I’m so happy to announce that ‘Love On Tour 2022’ is finally coming to the UK, Europe and South America.
Public on sale begins on Friday, Jan 28. Check your venue website for further information about your show, and protocols.
I’m so excited to see you. Thank you, I love you. H pic.twitter.com/M9Wg9AXczA

This is obviously all just rumour and speculation, and as always, we’ll just have to wait for an official announcement on this, if and when it comes.
Meanwhile, as of the time of writing, Diana Ross and Billie Eilish 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.
2022 will see Glastonbury Festival return to Worthy Farm for the first time since 2019 after the cancellation of both the 2020 and 2021 events due to the coronavirus crisis.
One could speculate that a lot of the acts which had been booked for 2020 will roll over to 2022 – as Festival founder Michael Eavis hinted at back in August of 2021.
The first line-up poster taster for Glastonbury 2022 will probably not be unveiled by the Festival’s officials until February / March (or perhaps even the beginning of April), with the full line-up usually being unveiled towards the end of May.
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 Craig Charles, Black Dyke Band and Monsieur Doumani – while Noel Gallagher said he will be up for playing if asked.

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 your luck in the spring resales which have yet to be officially confirmed (but will most likely take place sometime around March/April) – Please note that if and when tickets return to sale in a resale in the spring, you will need to have a festival registration to be able to buy one of these tickets.
