Eminem shows no signs of slowing down in 2013 as he was named the headliner of The Leeds and Reading Festivals held annually in England.

Black Sabbath, Blur and Arctic Monkeys are some of the rumored bands in question for the remaining two headliner spots. The summer concerts will take place next year over the weekend of August 23-25 in the UK. Previously, the 40-year-old rapper headlined Reading and Leeds in 2001 after the release of his album “The Marshall Mathers LP” to which Marilyn Manson joined the rapper onstage to perform the single “The Way I Am.”

In their continuing effort to show more diversity The Reading and Leeds Festivals will include a hip-hop stage, other genres of music and even a dance music lineup. If you happen to be across the pond tickets are available for purchase here.
