Three beautiful fields of wonder, filled with dazzling entertainment and amazing spectacle – set right in the heart of the festival…
The Theatre & Circus Fields have revealed their line-up poster for Glastonbury 2022.
Announcing the news on Twitter this evening (Tuesday, 26 April), Glastonbury officials said: “We’re excited to reveal the 2022 line-up poster for our incredible Theatre and Circus Fields!”
The official statement reads: “We’re delighted to unveil the line-up for the colourful, vibrant fields of laughter, spectacle, pathos, and poetry that is Theatre and Circus. A place where you can move from fast-punching satire to breathtaking beauty in just a few paces. Where you will always find the unexpected, the unbelievable and the unbeatable. And there’s always the risk of being led astray by some wondrous creature or whimsical character. We are so pleased that performers from around the globe are able to join us in this grand celebration of everything that make Theatre and Circus everybody’s favourite place to be”.
Some of the acts featured on the poster include Neil Balfour, Marcus du Sautoy, Marcel Lucent, Adam Hills, Nish Kumar, Edd Petrie, John Hegley, Jonathan Pie and many more – see the full 2022 poster and video of the area from 2019 below.
The Theatre & Circus Fields transform three fields at Worthy Farm into an unforgettable spectacle, with more than 1000 performers on stages running from 11am until the wee small hours. Here you’ll see jaw-dropping stunts, side-splitting comedy and cutting-edge theatre and circus. And a festival highlight for many – Glastonbury’s famous walkabout theatre acts will be out and about in the fields day and night.
Meanwhile, as it stands, in addition to the Theatre & Circus Fields – Field of Avalon, Silver Hayes and Glasto Latino are the only other areas to have revealed their line-up posters ahead of this year’s event, following Glastonbury’s first main line-up announcement poster revelation which dropped earlier 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.
This year’s Glastonbury announcements are far from over with lots more performers and attractions waiting in the pipeline to be revealed before the full line-up + 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).

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.
