Speaking about their just-announced status as co-headliners, Foals have commented: “We’re absolutely buzzing to be headlining Reading & Leeds this year. It’s a dream come true. We’ve worked our way up on our own terms & to be given the chance to headline one of world’s most iconic festivals is a huge achievement for us & hopefully a sign for all bands, that, if you stick to your guns & focus on what matters, you’ll get there & smash it. Onwards & upwards friends. Long live the guitar band.”
