The Angels singer has said he’d be up for “another go-round” at playing the Pyramid Stage
Robbie Williams has said he’d like to return to Glastonbury Festival to play the coveted Sunday Teatime Legends Slot.
The pop star, who released his record-breaking ‘XXV’ compilation earlier this month after celebrating 25 years as a solo artist, hasn’t played at the Worthy Farm-held event since he made his debut appearance at the iconic festival back in 1998.
During a recent interview with BBC Breakfast, Williams was asked whether he’d be up for making a Glasto-comeback in the form of a Legends Slot performance, to which the Angels star replied: “Yeah, I’d like another go-round on that stage and feel that audience and get the chance to do it.”
Williams continued: “[Glastonbury has] never really been on my radar, and obviously [I’ve] not been on their radar, either. But now I’m like, ‘Yeah, I wanna do that.”
BBC Breakfast entertainment correspondent, Colin Paterson, then pointed out that Spice Girls’ Mel C had already mentioned the girl group’s name earlier in the year as a possible contender for the 2023 Legends Slot – “Oh, really?” Williams responded, While adding: “The Spice Girls trumps a Robbie Williams, so maybe I’ll have to wait.”
When asked why it would mean so much to him to play Glastonbury again, Williams said: “It is the epicentre of the music world for that weekend”. You can see a clip of the interview in the tweet below.

As with every Glastonbury-year, the speculation about who might play the legendary festival is always very high, and with the 2023 Festival fast approaching, the Glasto Rumour Mill has already begun to spin.
Although the first line-up poster doesn’t usually get revealed by Glastonbury organisers until the beginning of March, there are many artists who ‘self-confirm’ prior to the official announcements by divulging the news during interviews, via social media or website listings – alongside the expected evergrowing rumours.
Along with Robbie Williams, some of the big-name acts to be rumoured for a possible performance at Glastonbury 2023 so far include the Spice Girls, Arctic Monkey, Elton John and most recently Roxy Music – who are speculated to be strong contenders for playing the coveted Sunday afternoon Legends Slot at next year’s Festival.
Glastonbury 2023 will take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from Wednesday the 21st to Sunday the 25th of June.

It’s also worth remembering that in addition to the ticket sales, some other opportunities for getting to Glasto include entering competitions, working and/or volunteering at the Festival – once those options make themselves available.
Don’t be fooled
Glastonbury Festival would very much like fans to be aware that there are people out there who will try and sell fake Glastonbury tickets to unsuspecting, willing and innocent potential purchasers.
Although Glasto-veterans who have been going to the Festival for quite some time may recognise these scams for what they are, newcomers might not.
Therefore, please remember that tickets are only sold on one site, which is: glastonbury.seetickets.com– any other site claiming to sell tickets for the Festival is not authentic.
