Glastonbury Festival 2022 is just a matter of days away, with fans set to descend on Worthy Farm for the first time since 2019, after the pandemic put paid to the festival for the past two years.
And its return is set to be huge, with some of today’s biggest acts sharing the bill with music legends – and a trio of epic headliners on the Pyramid Stage. All of which will make for a memorable few days, even if transport strikes do threaten to throw a spanner in the works.
But just who are this year’s main performers, when will they be taking to the stage – and how can you get a piece of the Glasto action yourself if you don’t have tickets?
We’ve got all the information you need.
