Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt are to perform at Reading And Leeds Festivals under their duo guise "EarlWolf".

The news was broken on the festival's official Twitter feed - with Bag Raiders and Crowns also added to the bill.


The news follows yesterday's announcement that Brand New won't now be performing at Reading And Leeds Festivals after cancelling their European tour due to "insurmountable personal issues". It also comes within a day of Earl Sweatshirt cancelling a planned run of European tour dates in July due to a bout of pneumonia. This year's Reading And Leeds Festivals take place later this summer, from August 23-25.

Meanwhile, Tyler, The Creator is due to perform solo on the John Peel Stage on the final day of this year's Glastonbury Festival, Sunday June 30. His recent solo tour of Australia was met by a protest from an Australian feminist group who campaigned unsuccessfully to have his visa revoked because, they claim, the rapper "promotes hate speech against women".

Green Day, Eminem and Biffy Clyro headline this year's Reading & Leeds Festivals. See NME.COM/festivals/reading-and-leeds, Readingfestival.com and Leedsfestival.com for more information about this summer's events.
