The heavy-weight line-up two years in the making will include Fatboy Slim, Overmono, Kojey Radical, HAAi, Romy, Arrdee, Batu, Avalon Emerson and many more…
Silver Hayes has revealed its highly anticipated line-up for Glastonbury 2022.
Taking to the socials this morning (April 22), the area formerly known as Dance Village announced its line-up poster for this year’s event and by doing so added even more acts to the ever-growing 2022 roster.
The announcement comes just ten days after the Field of Avalon line-up poster dropped earlier this month on Tuesday, the 14th of April.
The announcement post which was shared this afternoon via Instagram, said: “Silver Hayes makes a long-anticipated return to Glastonbury for 2022, with a heavy-weight lineup two years in the making. Sprawling across four stages, 2022’s offering bridges all manner of UK club & festival sounds”.
Silver Hayes is the second area line-up to be revealed ahead of this year’s event and showcases the best in dance music, drum ‘n’ bass, garage, afrobeat, hip hop, bass, neo-soul, and jazz.
Fatboy Slim, Overmono, Kojey Radical, HAAi, Romy, Arrdee, Batu, Avalon Emerson, Optimo, Nia Archives, Mura Masa, TSHA and Hybrid Minds are just some of the names announced for the dance-orientated area scheduled for this June. See their full line-up below.
2019 saw Silver Hayes boast five stages including Gully-Blues, Pussy Parlure, Wow, BBC Music Introducing and the Sonic Stage (which saw a new design at the time) and a brand new ‘micro venue’ by the name of No Average Groove, that year.
For 2022 this area will see the Wow & Sonic stages make a welcome return, whilst new additions will be introduced in the form of The Lonely Hearts Club – which will be replacing the Blues Stage at this year’s Festival as an art deco cinema structure standing over 40-feet high and firmly rooted as a space to celebrate all things sound-system culture (as depicted in the image below).
Meanwhile, earlier this year Glastonbury revealed its first big line-up announcement poster of the acts who will be playing at the Festival this year.
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 that evening.
Although the recent poster revelation added more than 70 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 around June time – 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 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).
Other acts who have been rumoured to make an appearance at this year’s event include Candi Stanton, Brass Against, The Chemical Brothers, Basil Brush, The 1975, Harry Styles 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.
Although tickets for the 2022 Festival have now completely sold out, there are still ways to go to Glasto this summer.
Some of the opportunities include entering competitions, working at the Festival and volunteering.
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.
