Eminem rumoured for Glastonbury 2023

Eminem rumoured for Glastonbury 2023

If reports are true, this would be the first time the American rapper plays the Worthy Farm-held event.

Eminem is now reportedly said to be in advanced talks to headline next year’s Glastonbury Festival.

According to The Sun, a source said: “Eminem is wanted for a huge slot at Glastonbury and has been in talks for yonks.

“His dates all line-up and if they can get him on board, it will be the first time he has ever played at the festival.

“Eminem is one of the greatest rappers on the planet and to have him down on the farm would be incredible.

“There is also a huge nostalgia factor with Eminem. He has been around for over 25 years and everyone knows his music.

“It would be a really special moment, not just for him but for everyone at the festival. The organisers think he will sign on the dotted line and they can get things moving.”

If reports from the mentioned insiders are accurate, this would be the first time the American rapper plays at the Worthy Farm-held event.

And while on the topic of Eminem and rumours, it’s probably also worth mentioning that earlier this year, there was some speculation as to whether the Detroit-born rapper would join Kendrick Lamar on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2022.

The rumours of Lamar bringing out the American superstar to join him on stage came after Eminem was said to be spotted at a luxury hotel located just a few miles away from the Festival site. 

This obviously did not come to fruition but does add some context to the current rumours.

It’s worth noting that Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis did however say earlier this year that all three headliners for the 2023 Festival have already been booked.

Therefore, these rumours are to be taken for what they are – and any insider claiming to know anything about anything, either has access to unreleased information or is outright mistaken.

As always, at this point in time, this is all just speculation and we shall have to wait on the official announcement if and when it comes.

Eminem – real name Marshall Bruce Mathers III – has ten No. 1 singles in the UK, including The Real Slim Shady, Stan and Just Lose It, while releasing 11 studio albums and selling over 220 million records online during his career to date.

The news of a possible Eminem performance comes hot on the heels of another rumour that positions Arctic Monkeys as top contenders for being one of Glastonbury’s three main Pyramid Stage headliners in 2023.


Glastonbury 2023 will take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from Wednesday the 21st to Sunday the 25th of June.

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.

Some of the big-name acts to be rumoured for a possible performance at Glastonbury 2023 so far include Spice GirlsArctic Monkey, Elton John, Robbie Williams and Roxy Music – who are speculated to be strong contenders to play the coveted Sunday afternoon Legends Slot at next year’s Festival.

Meanwhile, tickets to Glastonbury 2023 will go up for grabs one month later than usual this year and have been confirmed to be split into two separate days.

Coach + Ticket Packages will go on sale at 6pm GMT on Thursday, 3rd November, while General Admission tickets are set to go on sale at 9am GMT on Sunday, 6th November.

These sales will then be followed by a resale of any unpaid and/or cancelled tickets sometime in the Spring of 2023 (March/April).

As part of Glastonbury’s ongoing efforts against ticket touting, anyone who would like to attend next year’s Festival will need to have registered in advance.

As in previous years, registration remains free of charge and only takes a few minutes at

Those who have already registered in the past can also check their existing registration here

Please note that registration will close at 5pm GMT on Monday, 31st October, after which there will be no opportunity to submit/re-submit a registration until after the November ticket sales.

In addition to the ticket sales, some other opportunities for getting to Glastonbury include entering competitions, working at the Festival and volunteering – 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:– any other site claiming to sell tickets for the Festival is not authentic.
