Reading Festival is now completely sold out, organisers announce
This month's Reading Festival is now completely sold out, organisers have confirmed.

Meanwhile, only a limited number of day and weekend tickets are still available for Leeds Festival. This year's events, which take place from August 23-25, will be headlined by Biffy Clyro, Green Day and Eminem.

Reading And Leeds boss Melvin Benn recently told NME that Biffy Clyro's headline sets will be "the most special moment" of this year's festivals for him. "They are one of the bands that cut their teeth at Reading and Leeds. They sharpened themselves in front of those audiences," he explained. "They are a band who are at a point where they wanted to headline for a little while. They’ve been knocking on the door. They're a great British band."

Foals are also set to play year's Reading and Leeds Festivals and Benn has tipped them as future headliners, calling the Oxford five-piece "the most in touch guitar band in the world".

Other names on the Reading and Leeds line-up include Nine Inch Nails, who will return to perform at the festival for the first time since 2007, plus Frank Turner, Deftones, and System Of A Down. The NME/Radio One stage will be headlined by Skrillex, Alt-J and Phoenix. Other acts playing include A$AP Rocky, Major Lazer, Jake Bugg, Tame Impala, Azealia Banks, Disclosure, Peace, Palma Violets, Fidlar and HAIM.
