The latest headliners for this year’s Reading and Leeds Festivals have been announced. Foals and Disclosure will co-headline one of the nights at the iconic festival.
The festival takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend (26-28 Aug). Other artists announced include Imagine Dragons and Two Door Cinema Club.
Foals and Disclosure join Red Hot Chilli Peppers, with one more headlining slot left to be filled – rumoured to be a Guns N’ Roses reunion show.
Yannis Philippakis (lead singer of Foals) said;
“We’re absolutely buzzing to be headlining Reading & Leeds this year. It’s a dream come true. I used to watch Nirvana live at Reading ’92, on vhs, repeatedly while dying my hair blue & learning how to play guitar, badly.
“We’ve worked our way up on our own terms & to be given the chance to headline one of world’s most iconic festivals is a huge achievement for us & hopefully a sign for all bands, that, if you stick to your guns & focus on what matters, you’ll get there & smash it.
“Onwards & upwards friends. Long live the guitar band”
