Glastonbury Festival 2022 >


A unique feast of music set on a huge site offering a grand scale of entertainment unlike any other festival in the world. For five days 2,000 acres around Pilton farm plays host to a tented city in Somerset. As well as music from nearly every genre imaginable on over 100 stages, there's performing arts with cabaret, theatre, circus, children's entertainment, poetry, healing, green crafts and information and much more. Vibrant, spontaneous, colourful, and hugely entertaining.

The festival takes place on the last weekend in June, which is from Wednesday 23rd to Sunday 27th June 2021. Expect a huge number of the world's best musical acts along with circus, theatre, comedy and more.


There's a few early confirmations from the Emerging Talent Competition, but otherwise acts haven't been announced yet. It's expected that many of the acts who were announced for 2020 will appear in 2021.

For rumours of who is likely to appear please see the Glastonbury Festival 2021 line-up and rumours page.

What's on?

Expect something like 2,000 performances at over 100 venues including music, cabaret, theatre, circus, a fantastic Kidz area, poetry, green crafts and information, site art, decor, and loads, loads more ... much more than just the music, so make sure you check it all out!

Festival Ethos

The Festival wants people to think about their journey to the Festival, to use public transport, or if coming by car to share transport with others. The Festival is committed to minimising the amount of waste, and managing the on site collection of that waste efficiently, 'reduce, reuse and recycle'.

Glastonbury Festival believes that work begins at home, at Worthy Farm. Looking after the fields, the hedges and the livestock has always been the Festival's number one concern, and it is what life is all about. Please take everything you bring and your litter home with you and 'leave no trace'.

Festivals goers should think responsibly when they are packing their things to take to the Festival, and not bring items that will end up in landfill, or that they won't want to take back home again, remember to "Limit what you bring, and clean up behind you."

Good causes

The festival donates much of its profits to good causes including Oxfam, Greenpeace, WaterAid and hundreds of other worthy causes, both local and international.

Opening times

The Festival site is not expected to open before 8.00am on the Wednesday. The option to sleep in the car parks in the evening on Tuesday night will once again be in operation. Please note there are no facilities available in the car parks on Tuesday night and people are expected to stay in their cars. It is also expected that Campervans will be able to arrive from Tuesday afternoon. From 8.00am on Wednesday pedestrian gates operate 24 hours a day until the end of the Festival. If you have any problems with your ticket, or getting on site, there are enquiry cabins at each pedestrian gate to assist you.

Campervan tickets

Anyone planning to bring a campervan or campervan in 2021 will need to book their own campervan/caravan tickets and will need to present both their named campervan/caravan ticket and Festival ticket to be able to park in these fields. Campervan/caravan tickets will feature the name and address of the ticket booker.

As with your Festival tickets, campervan tickets are non-transferable and will include the name and address of the lead booker. Attempts to re-sell them may result in their cancellation.
