Eminem and Green Day top the bill at the second day of Reading and Leeds Festivals today (August 24).

Eminem returns to Reading for the first time since 2001, as he headlines the Main Stage. The Detroit rapper headlines Leeds Festival tomorrow night (August 25). Meanwhile, Green Day will follow their opening night slot at Reading Festival last night by headlining the Leeds leg. At Reading, the California punk band played their third album, 1994's 'Dookie', from start to finish in between some of their greatest hits for a mammoth two-and-a-half hour set.

Elsewhere at Leeds there will be Main Stage performances from System Of A Down, Deftones, Frank Turner, Bring Me The Horizon and New Found Glory. Other artists appearing across the Leeds site include Skrillex, A$AP Rocky, Major Lazer, Bastille, Peace, Iggy Azalea, Chvrches, The Strypes, Wiley and Parquet Courts.

Meanwhile, at Reading, there will be performances from Foals, Chase And Status, White Lies, and Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt and Tyler, The Creator, performing as EarlWolf, on the Main Stage. Reading and Leeds promoter Melvin Benn recently tipped Foals as a future headliner for the festival, saying: "Foals for me are the most in touch guitar band in the world and I don’t think anybody’s matching them. To see them own the stage and the reaction they get is unbelievable. A match for Rage Against The Machine in terms of moshing and intensity."

Other artists appearing across the Reading site today include Alt-J, who headline the NME/ Radio 1 Stage, Jake Bugg, Tame Impala, Johnny Marr, Palma Violets, Magnetic Man, Jagwar Ma, Savages, DIIV, Swim Deep, Drenge and Chance The Rapper.
