Multi-Brit and NME Award winners Arctic Monkeys will headline the Reading leg on Saturday, August 23, and Leeds the following night.

Confirmed to join the mighty Arctic Monkeys on the day are Dry the River, Pulled Apart By Horses, Gnarwolves, Lonely The Brave, Gesaffelstein, The Glitch Mob, Borgore, Adventure Club and Band Of Skulls.


With a line-up already including Arctic Monkeys as headliners, as well as a supporting cast including Jake Bugg, Imagine Dragons, Foster The People, The Hives and Peace, there are now even more names confirmed for the Main Stage.

Dry the River will be bringing their captivating stealth-rock to Reading and Leeds Festivals.

Making the step up to the Main Stage, the four-piece will debut songs from the new record alongside firm favourites like No Rest and New Ceremony from 2012’s Shallow Bed.

Leeds boys Pulled Apart By Horses are back at Reading & Leeds for a Main Stage set to remember.

Cornwall via Brighton trio Gnarwolves will also bring their skate punk anthems to the Main Stage after playing the Lock Up Stage last year.


Alongside UK rock hopefuls Don Broco, Lower Than Atlantis, Royal Blood and Marmozets, Cambridge’s guitar-driven five-piece Lonely The Brave will be bringing their emotive rock and powerful vocals to the Reading and Leeds Festivals.

Having made their debut last year on the Festival Republic Stage, these guys are a must see.


Reading & Leeds always strives to bring the best in dance music to the festival and this year is no exception with two more exclusive performances.

French techno artist and DJ Gesaffelstein is known for bringing hard techno back to its industrial roots.

With remixes for A$AP Rocky and Lana Del Rey under his belt, his is a name that any dance connoisseur should be familiar with.

LA three-piece The Glitch Mob bring their huge sounding twitching electronica for a set promising to wow crowds.

Mixing dubstep, house and trap into his own unique sound, Israeli electronic producer Borgore will be making his Reading & Leeds debut.

Meanwhile, Montreal-based EDM duo Adventure Club will be at the Festivals for a perfect amalgamation of distortion and repetitive beats.


Headlining the Festival Republic Stage on this day, Southampton’s Band Of Skulls will be bringing their recently released album Himalayan to Reading & Leeds for a set of epic, riff-heavy rock.

Having spent their time cutting their teeth supporting bands including festival headliners Queens Of The Stone Age, their live set is unsurprisingly nothing short of amazing.
