The 1975 manager is hopeful for the band’s possible appearance at Glastonbury Festival
Jamie Oborne – the owner of Dirty Hit Records and manager of The 1975 – has expressed his hope of the band playing Glastonbury Festival.
After posting a photo of the band’s lead singer, Matthew Healy (during what looks like a studio session), accompanied by the caption “2022 ENERGY” to his official Instagram page earlier this week (25 January), one fan wrote in the comments: “Glastonbury” – to which Oborne replied: “fingers crossed”.
Back in 2018, in an interview with Apple’s Beats 1, Matt Wilkinson, Healy said that he knows a lot about the Festival while confirming he was planning on going to go as a punter – before it was later forced to cancel due to coronavirus.
Then, in 2020 the band’s manager Jamie Oborne was asked about a possible Glastonbury performance via a fan on Twitter to which Oborne replied: “well we really wanna play”.
The 1975 first played the Worthy Farm-held event in 2013, before returning in 2014 and most recently in 2016 when they took to the Other Stage on the Saturday night prior to Chvrches and New Order.

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.
The first line-up poster taster for Glastonbury 2022 will probably not be unveiled by the Festival’s officials until February / March (or perhaps even the beginning of April), with the full line-up usually being unveiled towards the end of May.
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.
Some of the recent artists to self-confirm for Glastonubry 2022 include Confidence Man, Craig Charles, Black Dyke Band and Monsieur Doumani – while Noel Gallagher said he will be up for playing if asked.
