Phoebe Bridgers to the High Court at Glastonbury 2022
The 2022 Glastonbury Festival is underway, with music fans from around the world flocking to Worthy Farms in Somerset, England.
This year’s festival was spearheaded by Generation Z pop star Billie Eilish, Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney and American rapper Kendrick Lamar, with Diana Ross taking over the traditional Legends Slot.
On Friday June 24, McCartney played a pre-festival gig in Somerset this evening, with tickets to the 800-capacity show selling out in less than an hour.
On The Other Stage, rock band Libertines opened the procedure after a powerful on-screen speech from Ukraine’s president Zelensky.
Wolf Alice, after worrying fans by announcing their flight from LA had been cancelled, managed to head to the UK for a performance on the Pyramid Stage this afternoon.
In the US team, a sense of gloom is always present due to the devastating Roe vs Wade verdict of the Supreme Court. Artists including Phoebe Bridgers and UK rock band IDLES are among the acts condemning the decision so far.
Then came the moment we’ve all been waiting for, Billie Eilish making history as the youngest artist ever to top a Pyramid Stage solo.

A few more hours until things really start today.
That leaves you plenty of time to read this jailbreak feature by Adam White, about his youth as a “Glastonbury baby”.

Who are you most looking forward to meeting today?
Macca would be the obvious answer, but there are so many to choose from.
Personally, I don’t think I’ve seen a better gig this year than Big Thieves – they’ll definitely be the trump card this afternoon.

Little Simz’s set last night got four stars in our review.
“As the lights of Worthy Farms go dark in the night, Little Simz’s star is shining brighter than ever.”

Pretty impressive image at Groove Armada set last night.
“Hands of Time” is a rather confusing name…
