Spice Girls rumoured for Glastonbury 2023 Legends Slot

According to Mel C – the complete group appears to be poised on reuniting and going on to play “the biggest stage in the world” in 2023

Mel C has reignited the Rumour Mill once again on the possibility of the Spice Girls playing at Glastonbury Festival.

Sporty Spice took to the William’s Green Stage at Glastonbury 2022 for a genre-spanning DJ set earlier last week (23 June).

As well as drawing a big crowd when she DJ’d, Mel C also joined Blossoms on the Other Stage last Thursday (24 June), at the same Worthy Farm-held event, to cover the Spice Girls‘ ‘Spice Up Your Life’. As seen in the footage below.

Following her performance at Glastonbury, Mel C told entertainment correspondent Colin Paterson, on BBC Breakfast, that playing on the Sunday afternoon Legends’ Slot with the Spice Girls in the future would be “the absolute dream” – and that Victoria Beckham might even rejoin them if they did. Watch a portion of the interview below.

The Spice Girls Glasto rumour has been doing the rounds for quite some time and appears to be gaining some traction once again now that the 2022 instalment of the Festival is over and all eyes look ahead to 2023.

You can now view a constantly updated list of acts confirmed and rumoured for Glastonbury 2023, here.

Meanwhile, Glastonbury 2022 was brought to a close on Sunday (26 June) by headliner Kendrick Lamar who closed the Pyramid Stage that night.

Lamar’s performance came after the Festival made history with both the youngest-ever headliner in Gen-Z, icon Billie Eilish, and the oldest-ever headline in Sir Paul McCartney, both playing a pandemic-delayed 50th birthday bash for the greatest music festival in the world – three years after the last instalment took place in 2019.

During his historic headline performance, Macca wowed the crowds with a show-stopping setlist which included surprise guest appearances from both Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl as well as American-born star Bruce Springsteen.

Other highlights included Diana Ross commanding a mammoth crowd at her Sunday teatime Legends Slot.

The Motown soul singer treated the crowd to a selection of classics including ‘I’m Coming Out’, ‘Baby Love’, ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’, ‘Stop! In The Name Of Love’ and at the conclusion of ‘Chain Reaction’ pink confetti was launched from the Pyramid Stage.

Elsewhere, on the Saturday of the Festival, we found out Lily Allen was making her way to the Glastonbury site, thanks to an Instagram story she shared that afternoon, for what turned out to be a surprise secret guest appearance with Olivia Rodrigo on the Other Stage.

Other secret sets included performances from Jack White, who played The Park Stage on the Sunday, and George Ezra, who took to the John Peel Stage, earlier that day.
