Take a closer look at the guitars at Glastonbury Festival 2022 and get to grips with the live sound of the biggest artists from this years party at Worthy Farm

There were guitars galore at Glastonbury Festival once again this weekend, with a range of old favourites and up-and-coming stars showcasing their abilities on the trusty 6-string that we all know and love.

Keep reading to discover which guitars were most popular at this year's festival, and find out how to replicate the guitar sound they use on big festival stages like those at Glastonbury.

Paul McCartney

When Paul wasn’t busy shredding on his iconic Hofner bass, he used his custom ‘And The Crowd Goes Wild’ Gibson Les Paul model.

The legendary former-Beatle was also joined on-stage by Bruce Springsteen - who opted for his classic Fender Telecaster - as well as Dave Grohl, who came armed with a Danelectro axe in addition to his more recognisable Gibson ES guitar.

Paul treated us to one of the highlights of the entire festival when he performed alongside John Lennon’s isolated vocals for a performance of ‘I’ve Got a Feeling’, taken directly from the Fab Four’s rooftop concert and discovered during the creation of the ‘Get Back’ documentary.

Phoebe Bridgers

Taking to the stage for one of the most anticipated sets of the weekend, Phoebe Bridgers did not disappoint fans on Friday evening.

Phoebe opted for a Danelectro guitar for parts of her set, but played some of her hits on a BC Rich Warlock too.

Immediately after her set was over, Phoebe stuck around to provide some lush backing vocals on the anthemic ‘Just Like Honey’, as performed by the inimitable..

The Jesus and Mary Chain

Playing fan favourites from Psychocandy and Darklands in amongst some more recent efforts, JAMC brought their noisy, proto-gaze sound to Worthy Farm.

Renowned for playing hollow and semi-hollow guitars - and indulging in their erratic feedback - Will Reid was once again found playing his Gibson ES axe.

The live guitar tone was rounded off with a Gretsch hollowbody model.

Jim Reid also sported some Moog merchandise on-stage - one of our most-loved synth manufacturers at PMT!


Baltimore hardcore titans Turnstile stirred-up perhaps the most raucous crowd of the entire festival.

You can replicate their sound by combining a HSS-equipped Strat with a Jackson Soloist model such as the one below..

Wet Leg

The latest industry-darlings Wet Leg stayed true to rock ‘n’ roll tradition with a selection of Fender gear on-stage.

They opted for a Telecaster and Jazzmaster fusion for their performance, treating fans to a selection of songs from their eponymous debut album released by Domino.

Wolf Alice

Wolf Alice also chose to merge Telecaster tones with some Fender offsets, including both a Jaguar and Jazzmaster.

They also brought out a Yamaha Silent Guitar for the most mellow moment of their set, before launching back into their brand of grunge-inspired indie rock.

Jack White

Glastonbury are constantly looking for ways to surprise festival-goers, and the crowds were left truly astounded when it was announced that Jack White would be performing at The Park Stage on the final evening of the event.

Playing songs from his solo career mixed with a selection of numbers from his various other projects, Jack used heavily-modified Jazzmaster and Telecaster guitars, alongside two custom Acoustasonic models.

Sam Fender

Sam Fender kept things simple and selected a couple of guitars from the brand with which he shares a name.

Playing both a Jazzmaster and a Stratocaster across the duration of his set, the Glastonbury debutant attracted scores of adoring fans who revelled in his sing-along riffs and choruses.

St Vincent

We’ve looked at the awesome gear used by St Vincent on this blog before, and it was no surprise to see Annie Clark using her signature Music Man guitar when she took to the stage this weekend.

Courtney Barnett

Aussie guitar-hero Courtney Barnett has blessed us with some of the most inventive rock music in the world over the past decade, and her performance at Glastonbury reaffirmed her status as an indie-superstar.

Courtney played a Fender Jaguar with dual humbuckers - probably a Kurt Cobain Signature - as she performed songs from across her discography.

Noel Gallagher

Oasis guitarist and Glastonbury veteran Noel Gallagher has a guitar rig that has been studied for countless hours - we previously featured a guide to his gear as part of our How To Sound Like series which you can find here.

For this festival set Noel didn’t stray too far from the norm, playing the ever-popular Fender Jazzmaster for the bulk of his set.

Another Jazzmaster here, as bedroom-pop sensation Clairo took to the stage on Sunday afternoon.

She also played a Harmony Juno guitar as she entertained her fans and provided a perfect backdrop for the final day of the event.


Another highly-anticipated performance from Glastonbury 2022 came from a mainstay on the festival circuit - Foals.

The band uses a range of gear that we’ve covered at length before - check out our full guide here!



Este, Danielle, and Alana brought their unique blend of influences to Glastonbury and wowed crowds at the Pyramid Stage.

Alana relied on her trusty Gibson SG for the performance - check out some of the models we have at PMT below..

A viral superstar with a string of catchy hits to her name, beabadoobee used a trusty Fender Mustang for her awesome slot at Glastonbury this year.
