‘Raves R Us’ is set to return to Glastonbury Festival for 2022

The theatrical event will span three nights of the Festival

Naughty Corner Productions will be returning to Glastonbury with Raves R Us for the 2022 edition of the Festival.

The Liverpool-based, multi-award-winning theatre company, Naughty Corner Productions, specialise in surreal larger than life boundary-pushing theatre – with ‘Raves R Us’ being their most ambitious, energetic and insane show to date.

The show is inspired by the true events of a Toys ‘R’ Us store being turned into an (illegal) rave after hundreds of party-goers descended on an abandoned children’s toy shop in Hounslow, West London.

The immersive theatrical event that involves the audience and will build into dance music and culture frenzy features, will take place at the Sensation Seekers Stage in the Theatre & Circus Fields on the Friday and Saturday of the Festival at 21:30, as well as on the Sunday at 22:00.

“Toys R Us has closed down for good leaving Charlie and his mates unemployed, depressed and searching for any escape from this rundown bigot-lead society. Charlie’s vision arrives fully formed; They have an abandoned warehouse, an abandoned nation… it’s time to make a sanctuary, an escape… a Rave.”

Recap:

Prior to the full line-up schedule with times being announced on the 30th of May, Block9 was the seventeenth area to announce its individual line-up poster (on the 27th of May) for this year’s Festival.

Cineramageddon announced its individual line-up poster two days ago on the 25th of May, while West Holts revealed its lineup poster on the 24th of May – and Unfairground theirs on the 20th of May, just one day after The Park area which came on the 19th of May.

The Kidzfield revelation came on the 16th of May, just three days after Croissant Neuf‘s on the 13th, and followed announcements from Acoustic Stage and The Glade – 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 Theatre & Circus FieldsGlasto Latino, and former Dance Village Silver Haye had also been revealed earlier that week. 

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.

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.

Speaking of the new map, we also have a newly renovated and updated comprehensive Glasto Camping Guide which you can view here.

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, with one of those ways being entering competitions.

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.
