Line-up details to be announced later this month

Tickets for this year’s Reading And Leeds Festivals are set to go on general sale on March 21 at 7pm (GMT).

The event takes place on August 26-28 on both sites. The first line-up announcement will coincide with tickets going on sale.

Details of the headliners, like the rest of the line-up, are under wraps until then. However, festival chief Melvin Benn has ruled out big names including Foo Fighters, Kasabian, Kings Of Leon, System Of A Down, Linkin Park and Slipknot for headline slots.

Last year Guns N’ Roses, Arcade Fire and Blink-182 headlined the events, while The Libertines reformed to play them.
