Hip-hop fans will no doubt be flocking to Reading & Leeds Festivals next year with the news that Eminem will be headlining the music event.
The 'Love The Way You Lie' rapper will be performing at both festivals during the August Bank Holiday in 2013, no doubt drawing in a different crowd to the typical rock and indie fans that grace the fields of the music event every year.

According to The Sun, bagging Eminem as the headliner probably wasn't an easy feat for Reading & Leeds organisers, who are reportedly paying the rapper more than £1 million.
The festival date, which follows hot on the heels of his appearance at the V festival in 2011, is rumoured to coincide with Eminem's new album which is expected to be released next year.
Joining Eminem at the Reading & Leeds Festivals will be Mercury Music Prize winner Alt-J, grime collective Boy Better Know and Sub Focus, with more names expected to be announced in the coming months.
It'll be interesting to see how fans react to the news that Eminem will be headlining, after Boy Better Know were blasted on Twitter by angry festival-goers who believe they aren't suitable for the music event.
