“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing”
Kidzfield is the twelfth area to have its line-up poster revealed ahead of Glastonbury 2022.
Announcing the news via social media this morning (Monday, 16th May), Glastonbury officials said: “The legendary Kidzfield is back with an incredible line-up for children and families at this year’s Festival!”
Andy and the Odd Socks, The Wind in the Willows and longtime rumoured, Kidzfield-staple Basil Brush are just some of the performers listed on the poster (below) – which kids, and adults alike, will be able to enjoy at this year’s Kidzfiels area.
Located to the northeast of the Festival site, north of William’s Green and the Meeting Point, and west of The Acoustic Stage – children will find a field full of castles and aliens, bubbles and clowns, swingboats and roundabouts, magic and much much more.
As always, all children aged 12 or under are admitted free to Glastonbury 2022, and all activities within the Kidzfield will be without charge.
In addition to the recently revealed Kidzfield line-up, as it stands, Glastonbury has officially announced another eleven individual area line-up posters over the past couple of months – with at least another five more areas still to come.
Individual area announcements have been coming in thick and fast over the last couple of months now.
The Kidzfield was is the twelfth area to announce its individual line-up poster today – with at least another five more areas still to come.
Croissant Neuf‘s line-up was revealed just three days ago, on the 13th, and followed announcements from Acoustic Stage and The Glade earlier in the month – on the 12th and the 11th of the month, respectively.
Late-night areas The Common and – Shangri-La also released their line-ups, on the 6th and the 4th of May, respectively. In addition to the Left Field line-up that was revealed on Tuesday morning, the 3rd of May.
Other key stories from last month’s string of announcements included confirmation that Arcadia’s iconic fire-breathing Spider will be returning to the Festival in 2022 – following planning issues with the Pangea crane, which had replaced the Spider in 2019 but will not be featured at this year’s event.
The Arcadia news came bundled with its own line-up poster, after posters from the Theatre & Circus Fields, Glasto Latino, and former Dance Village Silver Haye had revealed theirs too just days earlier.
And finally, Field of Avalon was the first area to announce its dedicated line-up poster for 2022 on Tuesday, the 12th of April.
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 first main line-up announcement poster revelation, shown below, dropped in March of this year.
As seen in the poster above, 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.
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.
Some of the recent artists to self-confirm for Glastonubry 2022 include Go-A, 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).

Another exciting announcement of sorts which was revealed earlier this month included the new Glastonbury 2022 map, which featured lots of interesting changes and improvements to the site grounds ahead of the Festival this June.
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.
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.
