“Here we go!” the group wrote on Twitter while sharing official artwork to announce the show. Glasto organisers also confirmed the news on the festival’s account – you can see both posts below.


Recently, The Chemical Brothers have been tipped to fill one of the various to-be-confirmed slots on this year’s line-up. George Ezra also looks set to be playing in the ‘TBC’ Sunday afternoon slot on the John Peel Stage, though this has yet to be officially confirmed.

The Chemical Brothers – who headlined The Other Stage in 2019 – are due to play Arcadia between scheduled appearances from Jon Hopkins (10pm-11pm), and Carl Cox/Chase & Status B2B (1am-3am).

Other acts lined up for the dance venue across the weekend include Calvin Harris, Four Tet and Kurupt FM – check out the full Arcadia bill here.

Last week, The Chemical Brothers shared an Instagram post that featured the caption: “Intense rehearsals completed. Brand new intense show. We’re ready for the summer, see you in a field soon.”


The duo are currently on tour and will perform in Cork, Ireland on Thursday (June 23) before a show at Castle Howard in North Yorkshire on Sunday (26).

Glastonbury 2022 will see Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar each headline the Pyramid Stage.

In other news, the chief executive of UK Music has warned of “misery” for festivalgoers planning on travelling to Worthy Farm via train amid this week’s national rail strikes.
