Glastonbury Festival Has Announced Its Full 2023 Line-Up

Glastonbury Festival has finally announced its full line-up for this year and it’s been confirmed that the Arctic Monkeys and Guns N’ Roses will be topping the bill alongside Sir Elton John, who will be playing the last UK show of his farewell tour at Worthy Farm in June.

Other acts included in the line-up come in the form of Lizzo, Lana Del Rey, Lil Nas X, Manic Street Preachers, Wizkid, and Blondie, while singer-songwriter Cat Stevens has been enlisted to play the “Legend Slot,” previously played by the likes of Kylie and Dolly Parton. Additionally, Lewis Capaldi, Chvrches, Christine And The Queens, Thundercat, and Carly Rae Jepsen have also been included in the bill.

Glastonbury’s Sunday afternoon traditionally draws the festival’s biggest crowd, with Diana Ross attracting around 80,000 people last year.

What’s more, is that 53% of the 55 names on the initial line-up are male as the festival continues to make the coveted event as gender-neutral as possible. According to NME Magazine, Emily Eavis, Glastonbury’s co-organizer said that she was aiming to ensure “as close to” a 50/50 gender split as possible.

However, Sir Elton John is expected to be this year’s biggest attraction as he draws the curtain on over 60 years of live performances. Speaking to the BBC, Eavis said: “It’s a massive, massive coup for us to be able to get him here for the end of his tour. He’s really up for it. He’s been on the phone with loads of brilliant ideas and he’s just fired up about it.”

Tickets for the festival sold out 61 minutes after they went on sale last November, however, returned and canceled tickets will be put back on sale closer to the event — traditionally in late March or early April.

Additionally, Glastonbury organizers are also raffling off 10 pairs of tickets to raise money for the DEC Turkey-Syria Earthquake appeal, with entries open until March 8.
