Glastonbury Festival goes down at Worthy Farm in Somerset on the 21st - 25th of June 2023, and they've announced the first wave of its lineup, including two new headliners; Arctic Monkeys and Guns N' Roses.

The legendary festival, which happens to be one of the biggest festivals in the world, has announced its first lineup announcement following news late last year that Sir Elton John would be one of the headliners for this year's event.  

Glasto has announced Arctic Monkeys and Guns N’ Roses as the final two Pyramid Stage headliners on the Friday and Saturday evenings, respectively. Peep the first lineup announcement below.
