Reading and Leeds festival organiser Melvin benn has confirmed that every band he is in discussions with to headline next year's event will feature guitars.

The event organiser, who this year booked headline slots with Arctic Monkeys, Blink-182, Paramore and Queens Of The Stone Age, says he has already confirmed one band for next year's festival.

"For 2015, the conversations are already absolutely in full swing," he says in the video, which you can watch above. "We have one band already confirmed. We're waiting for them to make a decision on which night they play Leeds and which night they play Reading."

He then adds that he can't give out hints but that "every band we are talking to has got guitars".
