The young singer-songwriter will be heading to Worthy Farm this summer

Hetta Falzon is the winner of the 2022 Pilton Stage Competition and will play Glastonbury Festival when it returns in June.

The Pilton Stage – run by Neil Templar – is a contest that provides up and coming bands and solo artists of any musical genre the chance to compete for a performance slot at Glastonbury – while also getting to meet the legendary Festival founder, Michael Eavis himself.

The 2022 final took place earlier this month (29 march) at ‘The Pilton Working Men’s Club’ in Somerset.

Finalists included Eve Lesedi, Lurine Cato, The Silver Bars, Hicktown Breakout, IRIE FIRE and 17-year-old winner Hetta Falzon – which will now go on to play Glastonbury Festival this summer.

One of the special guests to be featured on the judges’ panel this time around included the legendary Chris Difford of Squeeze – who congratulated Hetta Falzon on her winnings.

Earlier this year, The Pilton Stage announced The Strays as the winners of its 2020 competition – which was set to take place in 2020 but was put back due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and instead took place on the 5th of February.

Both Hetta Falzon and The Strays will now go on to play the Field of Avalon at Glastonbury 2022.

2022 will be the first year to see Glastonbury take place since 2019, after two consecutive cancellations due to the coronavirus crisis – both in 2020 and 2021.

Meanwhile, the Festival released its first main line-up announcement poster, shown below, in March of this year while confirming that Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar will be joining previously announced headliner Billie Eilish to top the bill at this year’s event.

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.

Meanwhile, a platter of performers and attractions which have yet to be announced are still waiting in the pipeline to be revealed before the full line-up + times should finally drop around June time – as recently confirmed on Twitter 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.

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 competitionsworking 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.
