Eminem is set to headline Glasgow Summer Sessions 2017.

The 44-year-old rapper - real name Marshall Mathers - will take to the stage at Bellahouston Park on August 24 for the annual festival, which he last graced as a headline act in 2013 prior the release of his eighth and latest studio venture 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2', which hit shelves in November of the same year.

The 'Rap God' hitmaker will be joined at the Scottish festival by supporting acts Run The Jewels, Danny Brown, and Russ.

Speaking about the announcement, Glasgow Summer Sessions organiser Geoff Ellis told NME Magazine: ''We're delighted to announce that Eminem will be returning to play Glasgow Summer Sessions. His performance at Bellahouston Park in 2013 was spectacular, so I have no doubt this will be one of the gigs of the year. Joining him on the bill are Run The Jewels, Danny Brown and Russ with Glasgow once again taking centre stage as a destination for the world's biggest artists.''

Last year, the festival saw performances from Biffy Clyro and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, who headlined over two days.

And for the 'Lose Yourself' rapper, the headline announcement comes after it was recently revealed he would be taking to the main stage at Reading and Leeds festival - alongside fellow headliners Kasabian and Muse - in August, which he also headlined in 2013, and previously in 2001.

His recent string of festival announcements have caused speculation that the 'Love The Way You Lie' musician is working on new music, though nothing has yet been confirmed.

Tickets for Glasgow Summer Sessions go on sale at 10am on Friday March 10.
