“Celebrating 20 Years of Pop and Politics”
Left Field has now officially released its line-up poster for this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
The announcement comes after Arcadia was the last venue to release its bill for the 2020 event, less than a week ago on the 27th of April.
Now, revealing the news via the official Glastonbury Twitter account this morning (Tuesday, 3rd May), the Festival said: “We’re very pleased to announce Left Field ‘s 2022 line-up, celebrating 20 years of pop and politics.”
The names featured in the poster, shown below, and who will be performing on this year’s Left Field stage include Billy Bragg, Yola, Yard Act, The Regrettes, Billy Nomates, Jamie Webster, The Magic Numbers, Kam-Bu, Dylan John Thomas, Las Adelitas, Asylums, Brooke Combe in addition to many more artists and speakers.
Billy Bragg, who programs and curates the Left Field stage, said: “So much has happened in the three years since we last gathered under the Left Field big top. We’ve pulled together an amazing roster of activists and artists determined to make sense of it all. Whether it’s radical perspectives or great music you want, come down to Left Field to recharge your activism in these challenging times.”
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, Field of Avalon, Silver Hayes, Glasto Latino, Theatre & Circus Fields, Arcadia and most recently Left Field, are six of the areas to have revealed their line-up posters ahead of this year’s event – following Glastonbury’s first main line-up announcement poster revelation, shown below, which dropped in March of this year.
As seen in the poster above, it has been confirmed 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.
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 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).

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.
