Irish singer Imelda May has been added to the Glastonbury 2022 line up alongside McFly and the Sugababes.

The festival which will be taking place in June for the first time in two years, will see the performers taking to the Field Of Avalon area. The festival had been cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

Along with the main stage, the Field of Avalon area has previously had a cafe stage called the Avalon Inn. They have also had a fairground, which includes the classic helter-skelter side.

Reacting to this news, McFly who consist of band members Danny Jones, Tom Fletcher, Harry Judd and Dougie Poynter shared their delight over Twitter. 

"Another one ticked off the bucket list", they tweeted. "We're so excited to be playing @glastonbury on 26th June! We’ll see you there on the Avalon Stage". 

Imelda May also reacted to the news. "Glastonbury here I come!!! I’m excited to announce I’ll be performing at the legendary Glastonbury festival again this Summer!", she wrote. "Avalon stage on Sunday 26th June. Cannot wait!". 

"Glastonbury sitting atop Ley Lines has been a place of pilgrimage for centuries by Pagans and Christians alike. It’s sacred and magical place with an energy like no other. Music and poetry, art and dance fills the air. See you there!". 

The festival will also be headlined by Paul McCartney, Kendrick Lamar and Billie Eilish. At 20 years old, Eilish will become the youngest artist to perform at Glastonbury. 

The festival will also see Diana Ross perform at the legends slot.

Other artists also include Oliva Rodrigo, Lorde, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, while Doja Cat, Fontaines D.C, Griff, Arlo Parks and Easy Life will make their Glastonbury debuts.
