nme.com is proud to exclusively reveal the definitive, no-holds barred, final line-up for the CARLING WEEKEND FESTIVALS at READING and LEEDS on August 25 – 28.
Among the last-minute changes to the bill is the promotion of recent NME cover stars Queens Of The Stone Age from the Carling stage to the Evening Session stage on the back of their phenomenal fast-track rise in popularity in the UK. They are joined on the Evening Session stage additions list by rising US stars Amen.
Other changes and additions include – Dot Allison, Aerogramme, Titan, Mohobishopi and South, who have been added to the Carling Premier stage.
On the Dance Stage, great excitement has greeted the announcement of the addition of Regular Fries, Monk And Canatella, Plaid, ex-Death In Vegas cohort Steve Hellier’s Element and Ugly Duckling.
The festivals already boast of the most exciting line-ups of any festival this summer – Oasis having returned to their swaggering finest, Pulp making a welcome return to the festival arena and Welsh wonders Stereophonics rockin’ out on the Main Stage, plus the ever-zanier Beck promising a few surprises, and, possibly the most controversial man in pop this year, the inimitable Eminem.
