A stellar line-up, an upgraded main stage, an enhanced wooded area, the “Glade Dome” and a rebuilt Spike venue…
Another Glastonbury area has revealed its line-up ahead of this year’s anticipated Festival.
This morning (Wednesday, 11th May) The Glade was the ninth area to announce its line-up posters containing a roster of artists that will be joining the Festival’s bill this June – with at least another eight areas still to come.
In the message shared via its social channels, the Glasto-area said: “Here it is, the one you’ve all been waiting for! We’re back with a lineup to make you smile from ear to ear, and cannot wait to be back with you next month. This is for you, Glade Family”
The posters, shown below, include the lineup for both The Glade Stage and the new Glade Dome – featuring artists such as Danny Howard, Stanton Warriors, Don Letts, Barry Ashworth, Grafix & Ruthroyall, Tristan, Annie Mac, CamelPhat, Sasha, John Digweed and many more.
Many of the artists will also likely appear on multiple stages throughout the Festival weekend – as an example, Carl Cox has already been confirmed for playing Arcadia last month, and now The Glade’s Dome.
Spawned from its roots in the Field of Avalon and the Experimental Soundfield of 1992, The Glade has been around and kicking since the year 2000.
It will is back for Glastonbury 2022 with a stellar line-up, an upgraded main stage, an enhanced wooded area, and a new stage – titled Glade Dome.
The Spike venue has also been rebuilt in the trees making this a real social hub between Other Stage and West Holts just off the Old Railway.
Looking at the new map for 2022 (released just last week, on the 5th of May), we can now confirm that the new big blue marking on the map is The Glade Stage.
And according to OpusPocus – who in collaboration with Leap Audio and Extreme Rigging provides sound installations to the Festival – The Glade Lounge, Spaceport, and The Spike have apparently all been merged into the one big “Glade Dome” – now located in the trees, where the Glade Main Stage used to be.
Last month, it had been confirmed that Arcadia’s iconic fire-breathing Spider will be returning to the Festival following planning issues with the Pangea crane, which had replaced the Spider in 2019.
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.
A platter of performers and attractions which have yet to be announced are still waiting in the pipeline to be revealed before the full line-up + times should finally drop around June time – as recently confirmed on Twitter 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).

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.
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.
