Story by Jack Foley

EMINEM is the first headliner to be announced on the Main Stage at Reading & Leeds Festivals in 2013.

Eleven years after he topped the bill at the festivals the rapper returns for this performance, his only UK festival appearance in 2013.

Since the release of 1999’s Slim Shady LP, Eminem has established himself as a hip-hop leader having sold over 100 million albums worldwide.

Last week, two brand new stages and the first names across the festival were announced, promising more music than ever before, with artists from the worlds of rock, indie, dance and grime added to the bill.

Deftones will be playing on the Main Stage, Mercury Music Prize winners Alt-J will headline on the NME/Radio 1 Stage, Sub Focus will headline one day on the all new BBC Radio 1 Dance Stage and Boy Better Know ft. Wiley, JME and Skepta will take to the top of the bill in the BBC Radio 1Xtra Stage.

Tickets are now on sale for 2013 at 2012 prices!
