The initial line-up for this year’s Glastonbury Festival has been announced.
The previously announced Billie Eilish, Little Simz and Diana Ross join the heavily hinted headliner Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar, who both return from the cancelled 2020 edition of the festival.
There’s also the likes of – in alphabetical order – Amyl & The Sniffers, Arlo Parks, beabadoobee, Big Thief, Black Midi, Blossoms, Caroline Polachek, Charli XCX, Clairo, Confidence Man, Courtney Barnett, Declan McKenna, Doja Cat, Dry Cleaning, Easy Life, First Aid Kid, Foals, Fontaines D.C., Girl In Red, Glass Animals, Greentea Peng, Griff, Haim, Holly Humberstone, Idles, Inhaler, Jessie Ware, Kacey Musgraves, Khruangbin, Lorde, Megan Thee Stallion, Metronomy, Mitski, Olivia Rodrigo, Phoebe Bridgers, Sam Fender, Self Esteem, Sigrid, Squid, St. Vincent, Tems, Turnstile, Wet Leg, Wolf Alice and Years & Years, amongst others.
TL;DR – it’s stacked.
Last week, Paul McCartney seemingly confirmed himself as a Glastonbury 2022 headliner, after posting a not exactly subtle message on social media.
The post, which aped a Wordle score tweet, read “Wordle 121 25/6,” with five green squares.
At the time, it was 121 days until 25th June – which fell within the Glastonbury ‘period’, suggesting Macca would be topping the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday of the event – something confirmed today.
Glastonbury Festival takes place on Worthy Farm, Pilton between 22nd and 26th June 2022.
