As with every Glastonbury year, predictions and speculations of who might play the legendary festival are always abundant, and with the highly-anticipated 2023 event fast approaching, the Glasto Rumour Mill is already spinning in full force.

Although the first Glastonbury line-up poster doesn’t usually get revealed until around March/April time, followed by the full line-up announcement sometime at the end of May/beginning of June – there are many artists who ‘self-confirm’ prior to the official announcements by divulging the news via interviews, social media or website listings to accompany the ever-growing rumours.

In the tables above, you’ll find a compiled list of all the acts officially confirmed for Glastonbury 2023 thus far, alongside self-confirmed and rumoured artists who are still in the frame to headline or make the line-up at the 2023 edition of the Festival next summer – while highlighting every artist’s Glastonbury-shaped hole, gap and crack.

Once more acts are added to the list, it will also include those that have been ‘Ruled Out’ or are ‘Unlikely’ to play due to whatever the circumstance may be.

The tables are ordered alphabetically and broken down into 4 sections. Alongside each act’s name, you’ll find their current ‘status’ and a Glasto-shaped hole if applicable for any one of the Festival’s days.

We’ve also linked to the source evidence for each revelation – sourced mainly from, but not limited to, the official Glastonbury website, as well as various forums and social media including eFestivals, Twitter posts, FB comments, interviews, clashing tour dates and exclusives announcements/self-confirmations.

Keep an eye out on this page, as we will be reviewing and updating it on a daily basis throughout the buildup to Glastonbury 2023 over the coming weeks and months.

Also, if you hear anything through the grapevine or spot an act self-confirm for Glastonbury 2023, please do feel free to get in touch and let us know via any one of our social channels – Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

Rumour mill roundup

Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan appears to have confirmed the band for playing Glastonbury this year, after saying on his radio show that “Glastonbury is gonna be iconic”.

The news comes after the American hard rockers have been strongly rumoured for a Saturday night headline performance at the 2023 edition of the Worthy Farm-held event for quite some time, which has so far only officially confirmed one headliner in Elton John.

Aside from Sir Elton John, who will be taking to the Pyramid Stage on the Sunday night of the Festival, no other acts have yet been confirmed for Glastonbury 2023 – although Arctic Monkeys are the top talked-about contenders for headlining the iconic Stage on the Friday night.

Speaking of self-confirmations – Gabrielle Aplin also confirmed she will be playing the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury this summer on BBC Radio 2 earlier this month, while Becky Hill has all but confirmed she’ll be playing at Worthy Farm this year.

In an interview with ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Hill said: “I’m the first-ever female resident at Ibiza Rocks so that’s so cool. I’m currently working on my new album. All the music is written, we’re just getting it ready to release now. And I’m really hoping to be seen at Glastonbury this year – so fingers crossed”.

Elsewhere, Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ Flea got fans pondering about Glasto after retweeting a sketch of the Pyramid Stage created by renowned artist Stanley Donwood.

While other acts rumoured for playing the Festival, and the Legends Slot in particular, include Stevie Nicks, Robbie Williams and Bon Jovi (whose guitarist Richie Sambora recently teased the “possibility” of the band playing at Glastonbury 2023), as well as Roxy Music, who up until not long ago were one of the most strong contenders for this year’s Legends.

However, speaking to NME recently about the possibility of appearing at Glastonbury, Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera said: “I’ve had friends texting and emailing, saying: ‘I see you might be playing Glastonbury!’ To which my reply is: ‘Well, tell me about it, because I’ve got no idea.’ I’ll wait to see what happens there. Who knows? I don’t.”

Another band who was rumoured for a slot on this year’s line-up but now looks unlikely to appear at Glastonbury 2023 is Britpop legends Blur, whose drummer recently went on record to say they haven’t been asked to play this year.

Meanwhile, the Spice Girls, who have also been mentioned countless times over the past years in the Legends Slot context, are unlikely to be playing Worthy Farm in 2023, after Victoria Beckham ruled out a Glastonbury appearance as part of a Spice Girls reunion, following long-time speculation fuelled by her former band mates.

Additionally, Emma Bunton, aka Baby Spice, also revealed in an interview last year with BBC Radio 2’s Dermot O’Leary, that the Spice Girls “have actually been asked” to play at the Festival – but said that they “won’t be doing it next year [2023]”.

The Legends Slot, often seen as being the 4th headliner slot of the Festival, takes place on the last day of Glastonbury on the Sunday afternoon.

Previous Legends who took to the Pyramid Stage to perform at the coveted slot include Diana Ross (2022), Kylie Minogue (2019), Barry Gibb (2017) and Jeff Lynne’s ELO (2016), to name a few.

Along with Kraftwerk and Jack Johnson, some other acts rumoured for this year’s event include The 1975, who are once again mentioned in the Glastonbury context after speculation started building throughout the web when the Cheshire band confirmed new tour dates – leaving them wide open over the 2023 Glastonbury weekend. 

Pulp revealed dates of their upcoming reunion tour scheduled for this summer – while leaving plenty of room for a Glastonbury performance.

Eminem (who is another act to yet step foot on Worthy Farm) was said to be in “advanced talks” to headline the Pyramid Stage at the Festival this year – now looks highly unlikely.

See Also

Rihanna‘s name had also been mentioned as a possible headliner for 2023, while Taylor Swift, however, effectively ruled herself out of the run for 2023 after announcing her long-rumoured return to the road – scheduled to hit U.S. stadiums beginning in March 2023 and running into August.

It is worth noting though that Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis did however say last year that all three headliners for the 2023 Festival have already been booked.

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

Glastonbury 2023 takes place from Wednesday 21st to Sunday 25th of June and with both the main ticket sales, as well as the local & Sunday ticket sale now out of the way, the next option to bag tickets to this year’s Festival will be when the resale of any unpaid and/or cancelled tickets takes place in the Spring (around April time).

As part of Glastonbury’s ongoing efforts against ticket touting, anyone who would like to attend this 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 glastonburyregistration.co.uk.

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

In addition to the upcoming ticket resales, some other opportunities for getting to Glastonbury include working at the Festival, volunteering and entering competitions – once these options make themselves available.

To learn more about registration, the sale process and how you can maximise your chances of getting Glastonbury 2023 tickets, click here.

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.
