Meanwhile, recently Glastonbury revealed its first big line-up announcement poster of the acts that will be playing at the Festival this year.

It has now been officially confirmed that Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar will be joining previously announced headliner Billie Eilish and top the bill at this year’s event when it finally returns for the first time since 2019, after two consecutive cancellations due to the coronavirus crisis.

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 in the day.

Although the recent poster revelation added more than 60 acts to the 2022 bill, this year’s Festival announcements are far from over. There are lots more performers and attractions wanting in the pipeline to be announced – before the full line-up plus times will finally drop in June –  as recently confirmed 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 SlimChris DiffordCarl CoxHaimCourtney Barnett, Glastonbury-staple Craig Charles and Black Dyke Band – who said they will be opening the Pyramid Stage on Sunday morning (26 June).

Other acts who have been rumoured to make an appearance at this year’s event include Candi StantonBrass AgainstThe Chemical BrothersBasil BrushThe 1975 and The Lathums.

Glastonbury 2022 is set to take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th June.


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: – and any other site claiming to sell tickets for the Festival are not authentic.
