Glastonbury 2022 has just wrapped up and it’s been as big as you’d expect. Legends, unexpected collaborations and age records are the most appropriate summary words for this edition of the Worthy Farm festival. From Paul McCartney to Kendrick Lamar and Diana Ross, we bring you 10 of the festival’s highlights:
Paul McCartney with the Boss and Dave Grohl
Paul McCartney is the oldest artist to headline Glastonbury. 80 years and a set of 36 songs, 21 of them by the Beatles, in which he shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen, Dave Grohl and, albeit virtually, John Lennon. Simply legendary.
Olivia Rodrigo con Lily Allen
The author of ‘drivers license’ invited Lily Allen on stage and together they sang ‘Fuck You’, Allen’s 2009 anti-bigotry anthem, dedicating these two words to the US Supreme Court for its decision to repeal the right to abortion.

Kendrick Lamar bleeds (literally)
With diamonds encrusted in a crown of thorns and a white shirt stained with blood, Kendrick Lamar is closer to being our savior, even if he says no. He proves it in one of the most powerful performances of the festival, that of ‘Saviour’.

Wearing a brilliant kimono, at 78 years old, Diana Ross took the Pyramid stage and gave the audience an evening full of nostalgic hits.
