This year's Reading/Leeds Carling Weekend festivals will also feature the Radio One Evening Session Stage, a dance stage, the Carling Premier Stage and the UK Play Comedy Tent.

It's also rumoured Rage Against The Machine, Slipknot, Offspring and Cypress Hill will be playing.

Meanwhile, the Godfather Of Soul James Brown has been confirmed to play this year's Guildford Festival (July 28-30) on Saturday, July 29. Held at Stoke Park in Guildford city centre, the 10,000 capacity festival also boasts Rolf Harris on its bill and is set to announce more acts in the coming weeks.

Speculation still mounts over the bills to this year's Glastonbury (June 23-25) and V2000 (August 19-20) festivals, with Elastica tipped to play both.

Travis will headline Glastonbury on Saturday night, David Bowie is up to headline Glastonbury on Sunday night while Chemical Brothers are tipped to play Friday. Other acts in the frame include Nine Inch Nails, Sir Paul McCartney and Embrace.

Robbie Williams is being touted as a headline act for V2000, which takes place at twin sites in Chelmsford and Staffordshire, and it's also likely Macy Gray and Moby will play.
