Biffy Clyro and Fall Out Boy named as final Reading & Leeds Festival headliners

Chvrches, The Vaccines, A$AP Rocky, Travi$ Scott, Haim and Jack Garratt also join line-up

Biffy Clyro and Fall Out Boy will co-headline the final vacant slot on the Reading & Leeds Festival bill this summer.

The two bands will share headline duties in the same way that Foals and Disclosure will over the festival weekend with Red Hot Chili Peppers the third headline act.

Biffy Clyro, who last headlined the festival in 2013, commented: “We’re baaaaack!! We are honoured to be asked to close Reading and Leeds this summer. We had one of the best nights of our lives last time and we’re going to do all we can to make it even bigger and better in 2016. You ain’t seen nothing yet motherfuckers!!”

“It’s pretty surreal to hear we are going to be co-headlining Reading and Leeds,” add Fall Out Boy. “R&L was our first real festival experience outside of the U.S. and since the start we have buckled in and had an insane and memorable experience every time we have played. This is it, the big one for us and we are excited to be a part of it.”
