Ukraine’s Go-A self confirm for Glastonbury 2022

Ukrainian Eurovision representatives in 2021 will play the John Peel Stage in 2022

Go-A, who represented Ukraine in the 2021 Eurovision song contest have confirmed they’ll be playing Glastonbury this summer.

Announcing the news via their social channels, on Friday, the 13th of May – the electro-folk band said: “Friends, we have extraordinary news! We are coming to Glastonbury! We’ll be playing the legendary Glastonbury British Festival this summer.”

Adding in the message, seen below, the band also confirmed they will be playing the John Peel Stage on the 25th of June – which falls on the Saturday of the Festival.

Go-A was formed in 2012 and were set to represent Ukraine in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam, Netherlands, with the song “Solovey”.

Following the cancellation of the 2020 contest due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the band represented the country in 2021, this time with “Shum”, with which they placed fifth in the final.

As it stands, Glastonbury has officially announced eleven individual area line-up posters – with at least another six areas still to come.

The ones announced so far include Croissant Neuf, Acoustic StageThe Glade, Late-night areas The Common and Shangri-LaLeft FieldArcadiaTheatre & Circus FieldsGlasto Latino, former Dance Village Silver Hayes and Field of Avalon – which 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 recent artists to self-confirm for Glastonubry 2022 include 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).

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.
