Eminem is the first headliner to be announced for next summer's Reading and Leeds Festivals.

He will play the Main Stage, joining a bill that includes Mercury Music Prize winners Alt-J , who will headline the NME/ Radio 1 tent.

Deftones, Sub Focus and Wiley's grime collective Boy Better Know are also on the 2013 line-up, with Deftones bringing their latest studio album 'Yo Noi Kan' to the festival's Main Stage whilst Sub Focus will headline the BBC Radio 1 Dance Stage.

Meanwhile, Boy Better Know will headline the new BBC Radio 1 Xtra Stage.

Tickets for the Reading and Leeds Festivals 2013 are on sale now and for a limited period - until December 31 - tickets will be sold at 2012 prices.

Organisers have also introduced a £50 deposit scheme for 2013, meaning fans can guarantee a place at the bash early and pay the full balance before March 31, 2013.

It was confirmed earlier this year that Reading and Leeds 2013 will feature three new stages with festival organiser Melvin Benn announcing that: "There will quite a bit more dance music, quite a bit more other bits and pieces."
