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

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.
BBC RADIO 1 DANCE STAGE
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.

FESTIVAL REPUBLIC STAGE
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.
