Earache is proud to announce the full line-up for the ‘Earache Takeover’ at this summer’s Glastonbury Festival.
Following on from their previous successful Shangri-La collaborations, including The Earache Express in 2017 and The Scum Stage in 2019, Earache Records is bringing a run of unmissable takeover slots to Shangri-La’s Truth Stage for 2022.
The takeover will feature performances from the genre-smashing Nova Twins, doom-punk maestros Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, punk-grime trailblazers Bob Vylan, larger-than-life brass rock outfit Brass Against and Earache’s own pioneering ragga-metal signing Dub War, featuring Benji Webbe of Skindred.
“Earache are a complete fit to the ethos and worldview of Shangri-La’s, always experimenting and always pushing against injustice in the mainstream. We LOVE these guys and what they have brought to us!”
Chris Tofu MBE (Shangri-La Music Director)
Tom Hadfield, Earache Records’ Head of Live, says of the takeover: “We’ve all waited a long time for this to come around & couldn’t be more buzzing to get back in the field. We love the spirit of Shangri La and their punk rock attitude, it’s a perfect match with Earache’s DIY/Punk roots and we’ve tried to book bands with a similar mindset.”
The takeover will be spread over Shangri-La’s Thursday, Friday and Saturday night sets on the Truth Stage located in the South East corner of Glastonbury. The same stage to host legendary ‘earache takeovers’ of previous years including Napalm Death, IDLES, Gojira, Denzel Curry, Dead Kennedys & Wormrot.
