The Park area’s line-up for Glastonbury 2022 is here

A kaleidoscopic wonderland of genre-defying, synapse-sparking dionysian pleasurement

Glastonbury‘s individual line-up posters continue to come in thick and fast and this time it’s the turn of The Park – which is the thirteenth area to have its line-up poster revealed ahead of Glastonbury 2022.

Announcing the news across their social channels this afternoon (Thursday, 19th May) at 5pm, Glastonbury officials said: “We’re excited to announce The Park’s spectacular line-up for this year’s Festival!”

Perched high above the site, above Arcadia’s fiercesom, fire-breathing spider and looking out towards the Tor, The Park is a kaleidoscopic wonderland of genre-defying, synapse-sparking dionysian pleasurement.

A vibrant home of eclectic fabulousness. Nice ’n’ neat and seemingly founded in something of a natural amphitheatre, it is the perfect place to lose yourself in aural majesty. Impeccably curated, anything goes here: it’s where funk and soul, psych and punk, electro and pop merge to glorious effect.

Some of the acts featured on the poster (seen below), which will be playing on the main open-air Park Stage include Four Tet, Jessie Ware, Courtney Barnett, Khruangbin, Mitski, Big Thief, The Avalanches, Arlo Parks and many more.

The Park Stage debuted at the 2007 edition of the Festival and was initially programmed by Emily Eavis so that she could hone her skills before assuming more of the overall responsibility of running the Festival from her father, founder of Glastonbury Festival, Michael Eavis.

Today, run by Emily Eavis and her husband, Nick Dewey – The Park includes several venues, from open-air stages and late-night bars and cafes, to teepee villages, art installations, and an illuminated 18-meter Ribbon Tower which overlooks the entire Festival site.

Across the way of the main Park Stage, at the anthem-spinning juggernaut that is the The Stonebridge Bar, there are promises of back-to-back debauched beats dealt by the likes of Annie Mac, Eats Everything and INJA.

To rest your ears but feast your eyes, take in breathtaking views of the Glastonbury Festival site from the heady heights of the iconic Ribbon Tower. From way up there you’ll spot HMS Sweet Charity – yes, an actual ship – moored aground but floating metaphorically on rum cocktails, soul-soothing melodies and good-times galore. 

Further up on the hill – right up at the top of The Park – The Bimble Inn welcomes all weary travellers who have rambled this far, rewarding them with an array of the finest beverages – including Guinness on tap – and choice chunes to match. 

Thirst well-sated, head to The Crow’s Nest and quench your desire for knowledge at the Free University of Glastonbury with intellect-tickling talks from Jarvis Cocker, Jess Phillips MP,  Professor Alice Roberts and Coldwar Steve. 

With your marbles well-and-truly polished, try not to lose them again down The Rabbit Hole. This is where the Mad Hatter is unleashed, absurdity reigns and nothing is what it seems. But amidst the mayhem, you’ll be treated to a top-notch spread of wonderous tunes courtesy of Nick Mulvey, Jesse Malin, Beans On Toast, Rob da Bank and The Rabbit Hole’s very own Funkingham Palace, among many more.

At The Big Easy Jam, the spotlight is on you as you pick up an instrument and join in this weekend-long free-for-all jam session. From improv-jazz to alt-rock, procussive wig-outs to show-tune sing-alongs, there’s no knowing where this raucous rainbow road will take you. 

For further sensory stimulation The Spinney – new this year, at the base of The Park – will inspire and revitalise, with its laidback soundtrack and evocative sculptures by Bristol-based ceramics master Dorcas Casey. While the always-spectacular Sandalism returns to impress with their sand-based creations. Evoke your inner smithy at The Forge, where metal is melted and new joyful trinkets formed.   

Recap:

Glastonbury’s individual area announcements have been coming in thick and fast overt the last couple of months now.

The Park is the thirteenth area to unveil its line poster over the past couple of months – with at least another four more areas still to come.

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 earlier in the month – 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. 

The Arcadia news came bundled with its own line-up poster, after posters from the Theatre & Circus FieldsGlasto Latino, and former Dance Village Silver Haye had revealed theirs too just days earlier. 

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.

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 artists to self-confirm for Glastonubry 2022 include Go-A, Fatboy SlimChris DiffordCarl CoxHaimCourtney 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 StantonBrass AgainstThe Chemical BrothersBasil BrushThe 1975, Harry Styles and The Lathums.

Another exciting announcement of sorts which was revealed earlier this 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.

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 competitionsworking 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.
