Glastonbury Festival announces 2022 lineup with Arlo Parks, Khruangbin, Mitski and more
After a two-year absence due to covid-19, the UK’s biggest outdoor music festival is back with a new line-up. However, Glastonbury is no ordinary music festival. The festival is made up of different areas scattered around the park, as well as different recognizable artists playing in different areas, along with a lineup.
Other areas along Glastonbury include the Greenfields. Despite the ongoing festival, the green spaces remain a place where walkers get lost aimlessly in the attractions and take a break by the lake. The beautiful landscape is next to Silver Hayes, an iconic area that’s packed with electric house and club music, with stellar lineup like SONIC & WOW and Fatboy Slim. Or maybe you’d like to admire the giant spider hovering over the audience, which now graces the cover of the legendary Calvin Harris.
Finally, fans who have been waiting for the lineup of The Park’s main attraction can’t wait any longer. The center of the whole farm that contains a giant fire-breathing spider is back, and it’s bringing in famous performers like Arlo Parks and Four Tet, according to NME. “Nice ‘n’ clean and seemingly grounded in a sort of natural amphitheater, it’s the perfect place to get lost in aural majesty.” Next to the spider are other areas such as the Ribbon Tower and the Free University of Glastonbury, where scholars and professors will give you lectures.
As of March 2022, the event was currently sold out, but fans are waiting to purchase tickets next year.
