Arctic Monkeys have been voted the best festival headliners of 2013 by NME readers.

The band received 32.7 per cent of the thousands of votes cast – nearly twice as many as runners-up The Rolling Stones, who collected 16.6 per cent. Biffy Clyro came third with 12.7 per cent of votes followed by Eminem with 4.9 per cent and Green Day with 4.8 per cent.

Arctic Monkeys headlined the Friday of this year's Glastonbury Festival on June 28, delivering a career-spanning 21-song set which included the first ever UK performances of several songs from their new album 'AM', which came out last Monday (September 9).

'AM' entered the UK's Official Albums Chart at Number One on Sunday (September 15) after selling 157,000 copies in the UK last week, making it the second fastest-selling album in the UK this year after Daft Punk's 'Random Access Memories', which sold 165,000 copies in its first seven days on sale in May.

The full results of NME's Festival Survey 2013 can be found in this week's issue, which is available digitally today (September 17) and on newsstands from tomorrow (September 18).
