Time To Plan Your Glastonbury 2022 Clashes!

by | May 30, 2022 | Festivals & Shows News

Glastonbury Festival have now released stage times across all stages for the 2022 edition, and as exciting as that is it’s also now time to cry a little. Those pesky clashes are, of course, expected but oh so very annoying!

Glastonbury Festival 2015

Why should we have to choose between Wolf Alice, Supergrass and Girl In Red? Billie Eilish, Foals, or Primal Scream? Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Sigrid or 2021 Mercury Prize winner Arlo Parks? And that’s just on day one. But with so many, many ridiculously amazing acts playing over the three full festival days and each stage itself operating as its own mini-festival, this was always going to be the case. Oh Glastonbury, you do spoil us so.

Saturday doesn’t get much better for clash-avoiding, with the likes of former Pyramid Stage headliners Skunk Anansie storming The Other Stage while rising star Holly Humberstone takes over the John Peel, both at the same time as Pacific Northwesterner Laura Veirs plays the Acoustic. Later in the day we find Californian sister trio Haim making their Pyramid Stage debut at the same time as Mercury Prize-nominated Celeste takes over West Holts and the legendary Tony Christie leads proceedings on the Acoustic.

Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds compete for your attention on the Pyramid with chart-topping American teen Olivia Rodrigo on The Other and Atlanta-hailing soul star Leon Bridges over at West Holts before we have to choose between Paul McCartney, Megan Thee Stallion, Róisín Murphy, Jamie T, Jessie Ware and The Hoosiers spanning the other main stages. It’s exhausting just thinking about it!

We can go into Sunday’s clashes, but by this stage I’m crying into my cornflakes at having to pick between the wonderful Elbow and the enigmatic Country Music superstar Kacey Musgraves.

You can plan your own festival clashes when the official Glastonbury app from mobile telecoms partner EE is released on 6th June. Or if you simply can’t wait to feel the pain, head over to https://clashfinder.com/m/g2022 where some helpful folks have pulled together the program of events.

Of course, there are spots for some TBA acts, as always. We’ve seen morning, late-notice sets from the likes of Vampire Weekend on The Park as well as acts who go on to headline the following year over on The John Peel. So keep your eyes and ears peeled!

The Libertines have already been announced to open The Other Stage on Friday with a morning set and the wonderful Melanie C (my favourite Spice Girl!) will be having some fun on the decks in place of Power Ballads over at Williams Green on Thursday ahead of what is always a fun evening of live music surprises.
