Every year Glastonbury Festival puts on an incredible show with a legendary line-up, and it looks like 2023 won’t be any different.

There has been lots of speculation about who could be appearing on the Pyramid Stage at Worthy Farm next year, but OLBG, the online betting guide, has revealed the bookies favourites.

If you’re hoping to get your hands of Glasto tickets when they go on sale next week, then you might want to get yourself acquainted with Arctic Monkeys, who have come out on top as the favourites to headline the festival.

Their odds currently sit at 1/10 with a 90.9% probably that they will be on the bill in 2023.

This comes after the band made a comeback to live performances in the summer after headlining Reading and Leeds, as well as announcing a huge 2023 tour and releasing new music for the first time in four years.

If they did make the cut, it would be the band’s third time headlining the festival, having performed on the Pyramid Stage in 2007 and 2013.

Elton John and Guns N' Roses are the next favourite to headline Glastonbury next year, both with odds of 2/5.

Sir Elton is also embarking on the European leg of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour next year, so could he be stopping off at Worthy Farm for one last hurrah?

Behind them is Taylor Swift with odds of 2/1 to headline the festival. She was previously on the line for 2020, which got cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Harry Styles, fresh off the back of his sell-out stadium tour, is another favourite to headline Glastonbury with odds of 4/1 and just behind him is rapper Eminem with odds of 5/1- despite reports he was in “advanced talks” with the festival’s organisers.

The complete line-up isn’t usually announced until the end of May so things could change, however most of the artists, including the three headliners, are typically revealed earlier.

This comes as the festival announced details of its ticket sale coming up on 3rd and 6th November. Organisers also faced some backlash as it was revealed the price for tickets had increased by £70, but Emily Eavis explained this was down to “the huge financial impact of two years without a festival”.
