Glastonbury Festival punters have now arrived at Worthy Farm, pitched their tents, and begun venturing out into the incredible and unique experience that is Glastonbury 2023.
The music starts in earnest on Friday, but not everything has been revealed completely just yet.
As with every year, there are likely going to be some secret sets from some top-secret performers throughout the weekend.
In previous years, lucky and inquisitive fans have seen the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Lady Gaga, Pulp, Mumford & Sons and Skrillex (to name but a few) hit secret stages around the expansive festival.
This year, speculation is rife over who might be hitting stages around the eventful weekend in behind-closed-doors sets. Here’s who is most likely this year:
Harry Styles has been one of the most talked about stars in history when it comes to Glastonbury.
The One Direction boys missed out on playing Glastonbury, but Harry could be primed to take on a stage of his own this weekend.
He’s not on the line-up at the moment, but today he will be just a few hours away in Cardiff as he continues his string of Love On Tour shows.
After that, he won’t have another show until Saturday, June 24, in Germany. Could this be his chance to claim a setlist at the most legendary festival in the world?
Meanwhile, his fans are calling for him to replace the Arctic Monkeys if they pull out due to illness.
The fans of the legendary Dave Grohl-fronted band are utterly convinced Foo Fighters are attending Glastonbury this year.
Their theories stem from a cryptic message the band recently posted on their social media accounts.
It reads: “Hey. It’s been a while… Now that we’ve returned from our first run of shows, I felt compelled to reach out and thank you all for being there for us. Every night, when I see you singing, it makes me sing harder. When I see you screaming, it makes me scream louder.
‘When I see your tears, it brings me to tears. And when I see your joy, it brings me joy. But, I see you… and it feels good to see you, churning up these emotions together. Because we’ve always done this together. Time and time again. See you soon, David.”
There is also a mysterious band on the line-up called The Churnups, and people think this is the Foos. What do you think?
What’s more, Grohl joined Paul McCartney last year at his headline set, so he is due a chance to make a comeback with his band as well.
It’s very unlikely that Britney Spears will be performing her own solo secret set at Glastonbury Festival 2023, but she could make an appearance.
Elton John, who is headlining Glastonbury’s Sunday night, has promised fans an eclectic show that will be full of surprises.
Well, considering Elton released a song with Britney last year, it would be the perfect opportunity for her to make an appearance during the Rocketman’s set.
They released Hold Me Closer last August, so this would be the best way to debut the song live together for the first time.
Similar to Britney Spears, Dua Lipa could very well be introduced to his stage in the coming nights.
The Tiny Dancer singer released Cold Heart with Dua Lipa back in 2021, and it has since become one of his most popular versions of the track.
Will the British native be brought out to play to the thousands in attendance at Glasto this year?
