Paul McCartney has seemingly confirmed he will headline Glastonbury 2022, after months of speculation.

The Beatles icon offered a cryptic hint as he shared a tweet this morning (February 24), which showed a score for Wordle – the online puzzle game recently acquired by the New York Times for over $1 million.

“Wordle 121 25/6,” McCartney‘s post read, along with six green squares.

However, eagle-eyed Glastonbury fans soon noticed that 121 marks the number of days until the festival, while 25/6 is believed to represent 25 June, the Saturday of the Worthy Farm bash which runs from 22 to 26 June.

Wordle puzzles also traditionally only consist of five letters, leading fans to believe that the six letters are “Glasto”.

McCartney was originally set to headline the festival in 2020, until the event was cancelled due to the pandemic.

It has already been confirmed that Billie Eilish will take one of the other headline slots on Friday June 24, making the 20-year-old the youngest solo headliner in Glastonbury history.

Little Simz has also been confirmed for the West Holts stage, while Diana Ross will perform in the traditional Sunday afternoon Legends slot.

While the third headline slot is yet to be confirmed, it’s believed that Kendrick Lamar could be lined up for his first slot at the top of the festival.
