“It’s quite something – it’s defined us along the way, from back in ’04 when we played the tent,” Kasabian guitarist Serge Pizzorno told NME of the honour of playing Reading & Leeds 2017. “When we played in 2012 it was such a special honour because it was the first time we’d headlined a major festival. It was phenomenal. With these new tunes, it’s going to be f**king incredible.”

When asked what fans should expect from their live show, he continued: “There’s always a twist in the tale. We grew up around the rave scene and that’s how we like to do things – to bring the carnival. Y’know, last day on Earth vibes.”

Speaking of their fellow headliners Muse, Pizzorno told NME: “They’ve been around for so long and when you see those boys live, they take your breath away. There’s not many bands like that around any more who can give you that show.”

Reading & Leeds festival takes place from 25-27 August over the Bank Holiday weekend. Tickets are on sale now and available here.
