The Chemical Brothers’ Ed Simons sparks rumours of possible Glastonbury 2022 set

The proof is in the “cheese”

One half of The Chemical Brothers, Ed Simons, has shared an intriguing photo via his personal Instagram account and by doing so entered the electronic music duo into the ever-growing Glasto Rumour Mill.

Sharing a photo of Glastonbury’s Worthy Farm Reserve Cheddar cheese earlier today (January 19), Simons wrote “Delicious cheese from Co-op”, while adding a heart emoji and a “leylines” hashtag to the post.

Quick to comment on the somewhat cryptic photo, some of Simons’s followers responded with questions like “See you there?” and “Is this a clue Eddy? – while another Glasto-fan on Twitter said “See you on [Arcadia] Pangea Ed” (see screenshot and mentioned tweet below).

The Chemical Brothers – composed of Ed Simons and Tom Rowlands – are no strangers to Worthy Farm and last played the legendary Festival back in 2019, where they headlined the Other Stage on Saturday night of the Festival.

This is obviously all just rumour and speculation, and as always, we’ll just have to wait for an official announcement on this, if and when it comes.

Meanwhile, as of the time of writing, Diana Ross and Billie Eilish are the only artists to have been officially confirmed for playing Glastonbury Festival when it returns in 2022.

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.

2022 will see Glastonbury Festival return to Worthy Farm for the first time since 2019 after the cancellation of both the 2020 and 2021 events due to the coronavirus crisis.

One could speculate that a lot of the acts which had been booked for 2020 will roll over to 2022 – as Festival founder Michael Eavis hinted at back in August of 2021.

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.
