GLASTONBURY Festival has announced the line-up for its Acoustic Stage - the event's home to blues, folk, contemporary, and country music.

The Acoustic field will host headline performances from Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott (Friday), The Waterboys (Saturday), and Suzanne Vega (Sunday). 

Other confirmed acts include Scouting for Girls - who are also set to perform at Watchet Festival in August - Tony Christie, The Undertones, Richard Thompson, Bootleg Beatles, Fisherman's Friends, Brian Kennedy, Grainne Duffy, and Terry Reid. 

Lewis McLaughlin will also take to the stage on Sunday after impressing the judges and winning the festival's Emerging Talent Competition at Pilton Working Men's Club at the end of April. 

A Glastonbury Festival spokesperson said: “The Acoustic Stage is a festival within a festival.

“For the last thirty years or so, people have been trooping up to the hill to the haven of the Acoustic field.”

The festival is “very proud” to welcome back some “tent favourites” alongside new talent, adding: “All the artists, established or new, are all bonded by a common love for great music and attracted by the warmth of the audience.”

Glastonbury 2022 Acoustic Stage full line-up

Two other Glastonbury 2022 stages have been announced in the last week: The Commons and The Glade. 

The Commons promises to be “the place for a wild and relentless celebration like no other” across its four venues (The Temple, Mez Yard, Rumshack, and Totem). 

The Glade's main stage has been upgraded this year, while the wooded area has been enhanced with a new stage, called Glade Dome. 

The Spike venue has also been rebuilt to create “a real social hub between Other Stage and West Holts just off the Old Railway”.

The Glade's line-up includes Andy C, Camel Phat, Hollie Cook, former Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac, Rudimental, and Gong. 

Glastonbury Festival will be held between Wednesday, June 22 and Sunday, June 26 after a two-year hiatus due to Covid.  

In October, festival organisers confirmed that Billie Eilish will become the youngest-ever solo headliner when she takes to the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night. 

Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney will headline on the Saturday night for the second time in his career before American rapper Kendrick Lamar brings the curtain down on the Sunday night. 

Other confirmed stage line-ups include The Field of Avalon (McFly, Sugababes, and The Damned) and Silver Hayes (featuring Fatboy Slim). 

This year's Glasto Latino and Shangri-La performers have also been confirmed, while comedians including Nish Kumar, Josh Widdicombe, Kerry Godliman, and Jonathan Pie will take to the stage in the Theatre and Circus Fields
