Plus Cribs, Pendulum, Maccabees all set for first day of this year's event
Pete Doherty and Carl Barat‘s band, who have played two London shows to prepare for their performances at Leeds today and Saturday’s Reading Festival, play on the Main Stage before headliners Arcade Fire.
On the heavier end of the scale, the Lock-Up Stage will be headlined by Bad Religion, with Cancer Bats and Cerebral Ballzy also on the bill. A band named The Rats, believed to be a pseudonym for a popular UK hard rock act, are also listed on the line-up.
