The Reading & Leeds Festivals will take place over the weekend of Friday, August 22 to Sunday, August 24.
Having already announced four huge headliners for the August Bank Holiday weekend, the line-up continues to grow with more than 50 additions across the various stages.
This year sees one of the event’s most spectacular Main Stage line-ups ever.
Undisputed modern rock gods Queens Of The Stone Age and pop-rock superstars Paramore share headline duties alongside Arctic Monkeys and pop-punk legends Blink-182. QOTSA and Paramore will co-headline the first night at Reading and the Saturday at Leeds. Blink-182 will top the bill at Leeds on the Friday and play Reading on the Sunday. Arctic Monkeys will appear at Reading on the Saturday night, and Leeds the following day, August 24.
With a supporting cast including Vampire Weekend, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, You Me At Six, Jake Bugg, Imagine Dragons, Foster The People and Deaf Havana, there are now even more names set to tear up the Main Stage.
Completing the line-up for the Main Stage are Brighton indie-punk duo Blood Red Shoes, Japanese metallers Crossfaith, Dry the River, Leeds boys Pulled Apart By Horses, punk trio Gnarwolves, nu-metal luminaries Papa Roach, UK rock kings Young Guns and pop-punk champions Tonight Alive and The Story So Far.

Also appearing are fellow newcomers Lonely The Brave, post-punk festival veterans The Horrors, The Kooks and Brooklyn-based musician Twin Shadow.

The unique sounds of gypsy-punks Gogol Bordello and emotional rock heroes Jimmy Eat World will act as the perfect Lock Up Stage headliners, along with Brody Dalle, Möngöl Hörde and Architects.
Elsewhere, the headliners have also been revealed for the Festival Republic Stage and they will be the riff-heavy Southampton group Band Of Skulls, garage rockers Palma Violets and the energetic Augustines.
