There are rumours of a Chemical Brothers secret set at Glastonbury 2022 this weekend.

With slots on the likes of the Park Stage and John Peel Stage yet to be confirmed, the festival's return at Worthy Form is set to see performances from a few surprise names.

Among those could be the legendary Manchester duo, comprising Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons. Three years on from headlining the Other Stage at the annual Somerset festival, rumours are circulating that the pair will perform a set - most likely a DJ set - as part of the TBA slot at Arcadia at 11pm on Friday night (June 24th).

The duo also retweeted a post about their rumoured set at Glasto, which you can see below.
