Rum Shack’s infamous Wild Card is giving Glasto-goers the chance to DJ at Glastonbury 2022
Rum Shack is offering the opportunity to win a DJ slot at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
5 lucky winners will be awarded a 30-minute set at The Common’s much-loved Rum Shack.
The competition is open to all ages, playing any style of music, with all levels of experience welcome – although, in order to enter, you MUST already have a ticket to Glastonbury 2022.
All you have to do to enter the competition is leave a comment on the Instagram post (seen below) with the “two tracks [you] would mix to make [your] set like no other”.
The competition closes on Thursday, 19th June, at which point, the 5 lucky winners will then be informed of their winning via a direct message from the Rum Shack team.
The winners will then be able to choose their slot from those available and will need to arrive 45 minutes before their set (as latecomers will lose their spot).
Slots on offer include Friday (24th June) at 21:00, Saturday (25th June) at 21:00 / 21:45 and Saturday (26th June) at 21:00 / 21:40 22:20.
Equipment supplied will include 2x Pioneer CDJ2000 Nexus, or alternatively, you could bring your own DJ controller.
Winners will also have to bring their own headphones and use USB or CDs only, with vinyl being available upon request.

The Rum Shack team point out that you can bring your squad and have your own “Glastonbury party”, as these are early slots (for a late-night zone) and thus, the venue is unlikely to be busy – so you will have the area to yourself (supervised by the team).
The Common’s Rum Shack is located in the South-East corner of the Festival and has become one of the main spots for legendary surprise performances before they blow up – including but not limited to Akala, Kate Tempest and Kojey Radical.
This year’s individual area line-up poster (seen below), features groundbreaking artists from the likes of ENNY and Hak Baker (acoustic) rub shoulders with legends like Goldie in a riotous roulette of live bands, bass-fuelled DJs and badass beat-makers from all corners – think bass culture with a live twist.
In other Glasto-news:
Last month saw BBC reveal its coverage plans for this month’s Glastonbury Festival, which will mark the first time the Beeb has broadcast any music event in Ultra High Definition.
Another exciting announcement which was revealed last 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.
Stella McCartney’s War Child vest:
In 2007, Stella McCartney designed a limited-edition vest which was sold for charity at that year’s Glastonbury Festival.
The design, which features a blue sky, green field and psychedelic rainbow, was inspired by the Seventies airbrushed t-shirts her Mum and Dad used to get made.
The vest has since gone on to become a rare collector’s item, but a recent warehouse audit unveiled several boxes of vests which had not been sold.
Last month (26th May), Glastonbury revealed a limited edition upcycled vest designed by Stella McCartney. Staying true to her ethos and principles to reduce the impact on our planet, the original vests have now been upcycled and repurposed with a new mushroom artwork celebrating fungi as the future of fashion and our planet.
These limited edition vests are on sale now via Glastonbury’s official online shop, with all proceeds going to War Child’s Emergency Fund– helping children in Ukraine and other conflicts.
Although the full Glastonbury 2022 line-up including the set times breakdown was revealed last month (30th May), posters for dedicated stages and attractions have continued to be shared on social media as well as on the official Glastonbury website.
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 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.
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.
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.
