“As big as Glastonbury is, it’s not big enough for the both of the Gallaghers”
Liam Gallagher has confirmed he will not be performing at Glastonbury 2022.
The confirmation came as an answer to a question from a fan this morning (4 February) on BBC Radio 2’s Zoe Ball show, asking whether the ex-Oasis frontman will be playing Glastonbury – to which Gallagher replied: “No. Glastonbury isn’t big enough for the both of us.
He added “As big as Glastonbury is, it’s not big enough for the both of the Gallaghers”.

Liam last played Glastonbury back in 2019 when he took to the Pyramid Stage that year ahead of headliners The Killers.
Meanwhile, big brother Noel has been strongly rumoured to return to Worthy Farm in 2022 after a source had reportedly told The Sun newspaper that “he is currently pencilled on the list for the line-up for the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday of Glastonbury and will perform just before the headliner”.
Noel also said last year that he will be up for playing Glastonbury 2022 if asked.
The same source also claimed the American folk-pop trio Haim will also perform before Noel, saying: “Haim, who are best pals with Taylor Swift, are also scheduled to be on just before him”.
Earlier in the week, while answering fans questions on Twitter, Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis said that some news about Glastonbury 2022 can be expected by the end of the month (February), while also confirming that the first line-up poster will be released in March, with individual area line-ups to follow – before the full line-up plus times will finally drop in June.
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.
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.

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 for tickets in the spring resales (which have yet to be officially confirmed but will most likely take place sometime around March/April).
