GLASTONBURY Festival fans have a new way to keep up to date with the latest news from Worthy Farm with the launch of an official @glastonbury TikTok account. 

The festival tweeted the link to its latest social media account with the words: "We now have an official TikTok account." 

TikTok allows users to create short videos ranging from 15 seconds to 10 minutes in length.

The app is owned by a Chinese company, ByteDance Ltd, and had been downloaded more than three billion times by July 2021.

Glastonbury's first TikTok post showed a limited-edition Stanley Donwood Ukraine poster being printed in the festival's vintage Heidelberg cylinder printing press. 

The poster is on sale from festival's online shop with all proceeds going to War Child UK's Emergency Fund. 

Its second short video, shared on TikTok yesterday, explained the history and design ideas behind the festival's iconic Pyramid Stage. 

The current Pyramid Stage, which was built in 2000, uses four kilometres of steel tubing and has its skin added a few months before the festival begins. 

In June, the stage will host Billie Eilish, Sir Paul McCartney, and Kendrick Lamar as its headline acts for Glastonbury 2022, while Diana Ross will fill its Sunday afternoon legends slot. 

Other acts announced so far include Olivia Rodrigo, Lorde, Sam Fender, Little Simz, Doja Cat, Charli XCX, Griff, Sigrid, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, and Pet Shop Boys. 

Glastonbury has announced that McFly, Sugababes and The Damned will be among its performers in the Field of Avalon, while Fatboy Slim will return to Worthy Farm to perform at Silver Hayes

Yesterday, it was confirmed that comedians including Josh Widdicombe, Nish Kumar, Kerry Godliman, Adam Hills, and Jonathan Pie will take to the stage in the Theatre and Circus Fields
