Glastonbury Festival 2022 is underway, with music fans from all over the world flocking to Worthy Farm in Somerset, England.

This year’s festival is headlined by Gen-Z pop star Billie Eilish, Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney and American rapper Kendrick Lamar, with Diana Ross taking on the traditional Legends slot.

McCartney will give a pre-festival concert in Somerset tonight, and tickets for the 800-capacity show sold out in less than an hour.

In The Other Stage, rock band The Libertines opened the act after a powerful on-screen speech by Ukraine President Zelensky.

Wolf Alice, after causing fans concern by announcing that her flight from Los Angeles had been cancelled, has now officially arrived in the UK for her performance this afternoon.

Meanwhile, the Weather Bureau is forecasting Friday June 24 to be cloudy, changing to light rain by early afternoon.

the flowers break it on the other stage

Great set of Blossoms going down to the Other Stage! I drifted away from them a bit after their first album, but they’re still a great live band.

FOMO is setting in…

While it was my choice to be the one to work from home while my colleagues party at Worthy Farm, I have the slightest hint of FOMO before the Crowded House set on Pyramid Set. I just know they’re going to be phenomenal. I’ve taken a Magnum out of the freezer as a kind of consolation.
