Backstage at Glastonbury 2022 in photos

The backstage area at Glastonbury is always a who’s who of music. We sent our photographer, the charming and tenacious Jenn Five and her ever-poised camera behind the barriers to see who she could find. The answer: everyone of note!

Fresh off the John Peel stage, it’s the inimitable Self Esteem in a conical bra that’s part Madonna, part Sheffield shopping centre, Meadowhall. Legend.

Weeks after releasing her debut album ‘Time Bend And Break The Bower’, Irish spoken-word poet, Sinead O’Brien headed down to Worthy Farm for an emotive debut of some of the tracks.


Haim backstage at Glastonbury 2022

The sisters Haim know their angles. Hopping up on a park bench after some cuddles with old pal Jenn Five, they were quick to deliver movie-star energy.

Nova Twins

It was fighting spirit from Nova Twins who played not one, not two but three sets over the weekend. Britain’s hardest-working rockers? They might well be.
