“Musician Jack White is seeking 10,000 lively and loud individuals to participate in a top-secret experiment of musical concertry”
Jack White has now been officially confirmed to be playing what was up until not long ago a surprise secret set at Glastonbury Festival.
In an official Tweet put out earlier today (Sunday, 26th June), Glastonbury organisers simply said: “Jack White. The Park. 6pm.”
The message, shown below, was accompanied by images taken from the Glastonbury Free Press newspaper – which is published on-site.
“Exciting opportunity in the field of audience science,” the notice read. “Musician Jack White is seeking 10,000 lively and loud individuals to participate in a top-secret experiment of musical concertry. Qualified applicants must apply in person on 26 June at 6pm at The Park Stage.”

Prior to Jack White being confirmed, George Ezra was also revealed as a secret act poised to play at Glastonbury this afternoon (Sunday, 26th June).
Meanwhile, our constantly updated list of Glastonbury 2022’s secret sets still has a number of empty slots spread throughout 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.
