Glastonbury 2022

Attendees! Couch potatoes! Glastonbury is finally back!!

Your 1 stop shop for all things Glastonbury 2022. I’ll be focusing on the BBC TV coverage as I am too lazy/poor to actually go.


Friday; Billie Eilish. Not too clued up on this act, to be honest. However, I hear he is very good and he’s likely to do very well.

Saturday; Paul McCartney. Bit of a flash in the pan, this guy. Can’t see how he’s going to fill 2 hours.

Sunday: Kendrick Lamar. Not too clued up on this act, to be honest. However, I hear she is very good and she’s likely to do very well.

Doesn’t have to be the music festival of course. The thread title might also include a nice flower arranging conference or something going on in the village of Glastonbury sometime in 2022. That’d be fine also.

Do you know what would be great? If you didn’t try to be funny in every single post. Emphasis on ‘try’.

MorrisMitchener - 20 Jun 2022 08:36:18 (#3 of 516)

Grumpy. It's early, I suppose.

popstar7 - 20 Jun 2022 08:50:32 (#4 of 516)

Not grumpy at all. Just my heart kind of sinks as you do the ‘Paul McCartney? Up and coming newcomer! Bit raw for the main stage, eh? Eh?’ bit.

MorrisMitchener - 20 Jun 2022 08:55:17 (#5 of 516)

I'll keep 'em coming. Just for you.

I hope Sir Thumbsaloft puts on a better performance than he did at the 2012 Olympics closing ceremony, he was bloody awful then.

Good news for a lot of my ex Live events students - getting back to putting on big shows again.

MorrisMitchener - 20 Jun 2022 09:16:16 (#8 of 516)

It's ten years since the Olympics.I'm sure his voice will have improved...

I don't care. I love the man.

Judging by the Glastonbury line ups in recent years the rest of the British population is aging at four or five times the speed that I am. This is good.

Tragically, that plucky young lad, McCartney, will have to do without my support on Saturday night as he clashes with Roisin Murphy. I hope a few people turn up to encourage him.

RosyLovelady - 20 Jun 2022 11:58:14 (#11 of 516)

I was hoping it would all be over by now, but it evidently won't be over for a long, long time yet.

MorrisMitchener - 20 Jun 2022 13:09:29 (#12 of 516)

Other powerhouse acts up against Macca;

The Hoosiers. Suzanne Vega. Jamie T. The Waterboys.

I fear the great man may end up playing to an empty field ...

ReverendBlueJeans - 20 Jun 2022 15:08:59 (#13 of 516)

Roisin Murphy

Grounded Irish jockey innit?

Tenesmus - 20 Jun 2022 21:38:43 (#14 of 516)

Some great names in the line up, although I've no idea who Fizzy Gillespie is, nor Fleetmac Wood.

StakludKar - 20 Jun 2022 23:55:21 (#15 of 516)

I thought Father John Misty was playing this year. But he isn't.

Khruangbin are playing somewhere though. They fab

Tenesmus - 21 Jun 2022 06:51:53 (#16 of 516)

I see Steve Hillage and his Mrs still chilling. Pity they won't be on TV.

MorrisMitchener - 21 Jun 2022 08:27:01 (#17 of 516)

I'm very, very much looking forward to Wet Leg, a band who in between getting booked and now have unexpectedly become absolutely massive. 2 pm on one of the middle sized stages on the Friday. Nice to kick off early with a new act with some actual big hits.

Ginmonkey - 21 Jun 2022 08:36:11 (#18 of 516)

I remember something similar happened at Reading Festival in the late nineties with The Verve. The tent they were playing in was jam packed.

Wet Leg

What a terrible name.

phantlers - 21 Jun 2022 20:42:19 (#20 of 516)

actual big hits.
