Turner will headline Festival Republic Stage in one-off solo show

Frank Turner has confirmed that his ninth straight appearance at Reading and Leeds Festival this year will be an official record.

Turner will play the festival without his Sleeping Souls band, headlining the Festival Republic Stage with a special solo appearance in August. His place on the bill was revealed during last night’s announcement that The Libertines will be the festival’s final headliner, joining the already announced Mumford and Sons and Metallica.

Sleeping Souls will remain a part of Turner’s life, however, with the singer assuring fans that the band would be returning for his new record and upcoming live shows.
