The Damned, Imelda May, Sugababes and John Cooper Clarke have been announced for this year’s Field Of Avalon line-up at the 2022 Glastonbury festival.

Organizers for the Worthy Farm event shared a poster for the stage this morning, which also includes Lamb, The Hoosiers and McFly.

The Field Of Avalon line-up joins headliners Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar for the bash, which will run between June 22 and 26.

It will be Glastonbury’s first edition since 2019, with both the 2020 (due to be headlined by McCartney, Lamar and Taylor Swift) and 2021 festivals both cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Other names already confirmed for the Glastonbury 2022 line-up include Lorde, Foals, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Sam Fender, Megan Thee Stallion, Charli XCX, Arlo Parks, Haim, Blossoms, Beabadoobee, Olivia Rodrigo, Girl In Red, Megan Thee Stallion, Fontaines D.C., Elbow, Pet Shop Boys, Phoebe Bridgers, IDLES, St. Vincent, Wolf Alice, Self Esteem, Sleaford Mods, Turnstile and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Diana Ross, meanwhile, was previously confirmed for this year’s ‘Legends’ slot.

Other acts who’d previously self-confirmed for this year’s festival include Crowded House and Courtney Barnett.

Little Simz was also previously announced as a headliner of the West Holts stage. The rapper last played on the stage in 2016 for a mid-afternoon set. She previously performed at the Worthy Farm, Somerset festival in 2019 when she took to the Park Stage.

Meanwhile, Paul McCartney recently admitted that he still hasn’t planned his forthcoming Glastonbury headline set. The iconic former member of The Beatles told his official website: “Yeah, to tell you the truth we don’t know exactly what we’re going to do yet, but we are definitely planning on having a few tricks up our sleeve…”

McCartney previously headlined the Pyramid Stage in 2004. Talking about that performance he continued: “My best memory was that moment we walked out on stage, when we performed there in 2004. The sheer size of the crowd, and the banners and the flags that they all hold up which reminded me of the battle of Agincourt.
