Glastonbury has announced the full line-up for its Silver Hayes area as well as details of new stages for 2022.

Following a two-year COVID-related hiatus, the festival will return to Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset between June 22 and 26. Organisers unveiled the first wave of acts early last month, with Billie EilishPaul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar set to top the bill.

Glasto recently began sharing individual line-up posters for its multitude of areas and stages, beginning with Fields Of Avalon, which boasts an eclectic roster including The Damned, Dr John Cooper Clarke and Sugababes.

Today (April 22) it’s been confirmed that Silver Hayes – an area dedicated to “UK club & festival sounds” – will return this year with two new venues. The Lonely Hearts Club is described as “an art deco cinema structure standing over 40 foot high”, while Firmly Rooted will welcome “all things sound-system culture”. Its Sonic and WOW venues are also due to make a comeback.

Appearing on the Silver Hayes bill are the likes of Fatboy Slim, Bad Boy Chiller Crew, Mura Masa, Romy (The xx), Kojey Radical, Lola Young, Groove Armada (DJ set), Gorgon City, Shy FX, Berwyn, Willow Kayne and Wisdom Teeth.
