Best New Bands To Watch At Reading & Leeds 2014 - Playlist
 

Ok, so we know the big guns will be fantastic at this year's Reading and Leeds festival. Arctic Monkeys, Queens Of The Stone Age, Vampire Weekend... we know all about them. But if you're heading to Reading and Leeds in search of something a little more unknown, step right this way. The smaller stages are packed with brilliant, brand new talent. From the sonic fuzz of The Wytches to Kate Tempest's gob-of-her-generation declarations, the 15 tracks below showcase the very best that new music has to offer right now. Take a listen - don't blame us if suddenly you rip up your plans of what you're planning to see and start again.
