Jack Johnson looks likely to play at Glastonbury in 2023

Jack Johnson looks likely to play at Glastonbury in 2023

The American singer-songwriter will be returning to the UK for his first show in almost five years – over Glastonbury weekend in June 2023

Jack Johnson is now rumoured to be one of the more likely artists to play at Glastonbury Festival next summer after announcing his recent UK and Europe tour dates.

The Hawaii-born, Californian-based artist has already fulfilled dates in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Chile and Brazil as part of his ‘Meet The Moonlight Tour’, and will next play London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo on the 21st of June followed by a performance at the Eden Sessions in Cornwall on the 23rd of June – which as of the time of writing, is his last gig scheduled for that month.

With the 2023 edition of Glastonbury Festival set to take place from Wednesday 21st to Sunday 25th June, Johnson could more than likely pull off a performance on either the Saturday or (more likely) Sunday of the Festival – falling on the 24th and 25th of June,  respectively.pro

Jack Johnson’s 2023 UK and Europe summer tour

The American singer-songwriter will be returning to the UK for his first concert in almost five years, saying: “I am looking forward to returning to the UK to gather together and share songs. It’s exciting and heartwarming to be so welcomed in a beautiful city like London, which is on the opposite side of the globe from where I live.”

Johnson’s eighth studio album, titled ‘Meet The Moonlight’, was released in June and produced by Lana Del Rey’s studio Grammy-winning producer Blake Mills – who Jack credits with helping to push himself outside of his comfort zone.

The last time Jack Johnson played on Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage was back in 2010 – as seen in the video below. 

He was one of the first acts to be officially announced for that year’s bill (on the 1st of February), following previous announcements confirming U2 and Emerging Talent Contest early bird winners My Luminaries to the Festival that year.

As with every Glastonbury-year, the speculation about who might play the legendary festival is always very high, and with the 2023 event fast approaching, the Glasto Rumour Mill is already spinning in full force.

Although the first line-up poster doesn’t usually get revealed until the beginning of March, followed by the full line-up announcement sometime at the end of May – 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.

The 1975 are once again mentioned in the Glastonbury context after rumours started permeating the web when the Cheshire band confirmed new tour dates – leaving them wide open over the 2023 Glastonbury weekend. 

Rihanna‘s name has also recently been mentioned after she was reportedly approached by the Festival about being the closing act at the event next year.

Taylor Swift however has effectively almost 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.

Pulp also revealed dates of their upcoming reunion tour scheduled for next summer, leaving plenty of room for a Glastonbury performance – while Victoria Beckham ruled out a Glastonbury appearance as part of a Spice Girls reunion, following long-time speculation fuelled by her former band mates.

Elsewhere, whispers of a possible Glastonbury performance by Roxy Music started circling the web in early September, after a couple of posts were published on the eFestivals website, pertaining to some apparent inside information “from a very reliable source” – saying the band are set to play the Legends Slot at Glastonbury 2023.

Arctic Monkeys are also strongly rumoured to have signed on “the dotted line” for a deal to headline the Festival next summer after their UK tour sold out in minutes when going up for sale in October this year.

Guns N’ Roses entered the rumour mill after Festival organiser Emily Eavis said in an interview last year that the hard rockers need to play the Worthy Farm event at some point.

While Elton John, who has likewise, long been rumoured for a performance at Glasto, made some changes to his current ‘Yellow Brick Road’ tour schedule and in doing so created a perfectly-sized Glasto-shaped gap in his upcoming tour dates.

And finally, Eminem – which is yet another name to have never stepped foot at Worthy Farm – is said to be in “advanced talks” to headline the iconic Pyramid Stage at the Festival next year.

It is worth noting though 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, as any insider claiming to know anything about anything, either have access to unreleased information or is outright mistaken.

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

And now with both ticket sales out of the way, the next option to bag tickets to the Pilton event – apart from the local & Sunday ticket sale next week – will be when the resale of any unpaid and/or cancelled tickets takes place in the Spring of 2023 (around April time).

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.

That said, registration for Glastonbury 2023 closed at 5pm GMT on Monday, 31st October, and as of this moment in time, there is no opportunity to submit/re-submit a registration until after the November ticket sales – when registration will open once again on Monday 21st November.

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 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: glastonbury.seetickets.com.
