Clashes at Glastonbury Festival 2022: The most brutal festival of 2022

“Clash” is a word that can make any Glastonbury ticket holder break out in a cold sweat.

When organizers first release the poster suitable for bursting musicians booked to perform at the Worthy Farm Festival, there’s nothing quite like making a list of all the sets you’d like to see.

But then the set times are announced, and you come to the shattering realization that you might have to skip some of your favorites.

Below we go through the biggest clashes at the 2022 festival – and ways you can get at least some of specific artists’ sets.

FRIDAY 24 JUNE

Billie Eilish (22:15-23:45) vs Colts (22:30-23:45) vs Little Simz (22:15-23:45)

It’s more than likely a lot of people have planned to watch both Billie Eilish and Little Simz — and that includes indie music lovers who may have watched Foals five times or more (ahem). You could probably watch Little Simz for 30 minutes before settling on Eilish, Foals, or anyone else (Primal Scream, Four Tet).

Supergrass (17:15 – 18:15) vs. TLC (17:30 – 18:30)

Glastonbury organizers want to get you to pick a 1990s band for your early Friday night entertainment. Your choice will depend on whether you’d rather have Supergrass’ 1995 hits “Alright” (“We’re Young!” and “No Scrubs,” which followed five years later, as part of your set.

SATURDAY 25 JUNE

Paul McCartney (21:30-23:45) vs Jamie T (22:30-23:45) vs Mitski (21:15-22:15)

When Jamie T announced his first album in five years last month, a Glastonbury gig was all but confirmed. In fact, his name appeared on the bill when the set times were announced – but it comes an hour into Paul McCartney’s 135-minute Pyramid Stage performance. If you don’t mind watching McCartney in his entirety, you can watch the second half of his show if you start with Mitski.

Haim (17:30-18:30) vs Glass Animals (17:15-18:15) vs Big Thief (18:15-19:15) vs Olivia Rodrigo (18:45-19:45)

Three of the acts that many Glastonbury-goers want on their bucket list play pretty much on top of each other. You could probably take 10 minutes each if you split your time between stages – but a good tip might be to start with Glass Animals on the Other Stage before going to Haim on the Pyramid Stage and then to the Park Stage for Big drive Thief. Then come full circle at Other Srafe with Grammy winner Olivia Rodrigo.

SUNDAY 26 JUNE

Kendrick Lamar (21:45-23:15) vs. Pet Shop Boys (21:45-23:15)

Much like night one, Sunday night’s headliners might have seemed like a reasonable clash to organizers. But honestly, many people would probably have preferred to see the Pet Shop Boys on an early evening at sunset. This would have set her free to later see Kendrick Lamar in his Pyramid Stage debut. Therefore, people will be forced to make a very difficult decision …

Lorde (19:30-20:45) vs Years & Years (19:45-20:45)

In what is perhaps the most egregious of the clashes, Lorde will be playing at the same time as Years & Years. A possible workaround: Lorde starts 15 minutes before Years & Years. So if you want to see both, start on the Other Stage before making the fast track to the Pyramid (about a 15 minute walk).

Diana Ross (16:00-17:15) vs. Fontaines DC (16:30-17:30)

Legends slot, played by the Supremes star, often draws one of the biggest crowds of the weekend. But Irish rock band Fontaines DC are also known for their rousing live shows… what to do? If you want to see both, we recommend enjoying the first half of Ross before continuing on to Fontaines.
