Eminem has agreed to refrain from performing homophobic lyrics during an upcoming festival in the United Kingdom next summer.

Organizers of the popular Wireless Festival 2010 were fearful that various gay rights groups, such an OutRage! would picket the concert.

According to UK’s Evening Standard, OutRage! has agreed to refrain from picketing the concert, as long as Eminem does not use lyrics that encourage or incite hatred against gay people.

Eminem agreed to sign up after he was assured there would be no protests at the show, according to spokesman David Allison.

Eminem also reportedly agreed to both parties demands that he censor his lyrics, to avoid confrontation with the gay rights groups in the country.

OutRage! and other similar groups have actively boycotted singers like Beenie Man and Buju Banton, who have had tours of the country interrupted due to protests over their homophobic lyrics.

At press time confirmed performers for the 2010 Wireless Festival include Pink and The Ting Tings.

The event takes place at London’s Hyde Park in July of 2010.
