The 'Stan' rapper has been announced as the first act to headline next year's summer event.

Eminem has been confirmed as the first headliner for the Leeds and Reading Festivals 2013.

The 'Lose Yourself' star will play on the main stage of the festival – making his second appearance after headlining the event back in 2001.

Other acts already confirmed for the event include Mercury Music Prize winners Alt-J, rockers The Deftones and Boy Better Know.

The 2013 Reading and Leeds Festival will take place across the weekend of 23rd to 25th August.

Meanwhile, Eminem is expected to release a new album next year after a special commemorative cap went on sale on his official website, which spoke of his "landmark solo records" and named 2013 as one of the years.

Eminem's new album will be his seventh studio album and follow up the release of 2010's "Recovery'.
