Keep reading for everything you need to know about Glastonbury 2023, including who’s performing, to when it’s taking place, how you can get your hands on some tickets, and more.

Glastonbury 2023 Performers

The first major act confirmed for this year’s festival is the one and only Sir Elton John. The “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” hitmaker will headline the Pyramid Stage on Sunday, June 25, for what will be the final UK show of his last-ever tour.

“There is no more fitting way to say goodbye to my British fans," the Grammy award-winner said in a statement. “I can't wait to embrace the spirit of the greatest festival in the world. It's going to be incredibly emotional.”

Although not confirmed, a string of other major names are rumoured to be performing at Glastonbury 2023, including Harry Styles and Pyramid Stage veterans Arctic Monkeys. Meanwhile, bookmakers have also lowered the odds on the likes of Guns N' Roses, Eminem, and Taylor Swift. However, given that the latter’s 2023 Eras tour kicks off around the same time as the annual summer festival, Swifties might be left disappointed if they’re anticipating her Glasto debut.
