Here’s the latest on what we know about Glastonbury 2023 including rumoured headliners and how you can have another chance at bagging tickets

It’s no secret that Bristolians love a good party - and what party is bigger, better and more iconic than Glastonbury? The festival, arguably the UK’s biggest and best, is one of the most coveted events in the calendar not just in the city but across the nation.

Glastonbury is set return to Worthy Farm, Somerset in Summer 2023, running from Wednesday, June 21 until Sunday, June 25. As ever, it will feature some of the UK’s most legendary acts - although many of these are yet to be confirmed.

The only act officially confirmed for Glastonbury 2023 so far is Sir Elton John. The hit songwriter will headline the Pyramid Stage on Sunday (June 25), with more acts expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Sadly, it’s infamously difficult to get hold of tickets for Glastonbury, which sold out in minutes in 2022 and have been compared to the likes of gold dust by fans. Here’s the latest on Glastonbury 2023 including rumoured headliners, “self-confirmed” acts and when festival-goers will have another chance to bag tickets.

Rumoured headliners

According to Glasto Fest Feed, Arctic Monkeys and Guns N’ Roses are the two main contenders to join the already confirmed Elton John as the Friday and Saturday Pyramid Stage headliners at Glastonbury 2023. Other bands that have ignited hopes in fans for a potential performance are Florence & the Machine, Pulp, the 1975 and Kraftwerk due to gaps in their schedules at the time of the festival.

Red Hot Chilli Peppers also got fans pondering after band member Flea retweeted a sketch of the festival’s Pyramid Stage. However, it’s worth taking rumours with a pinch of salt, as organiser Emily Eavis revealed that all three headliners for Glastonbury 2023 have already been booked.
