Slaves to play secret set at Reading Festival today

It's just been announced on the Reading Festival app

Slaves are to play a secret set at Reading Festival today (August 27).

The duo have travelled to Reading from France, where they performed at the Rock en Seine Festival in Paris yesterday, and will perform on the BBC Introducing stage at 7.15pm.

The secret set has just been announced on the Reading Festival app and by the band on Twitter.


Slaves aren’t the only band to have surprised Reading Festival 2016 with a secret set. Yesterday (August 26) NME cover stars Blossoms played a secret set during which they paid tribute to former tourmates Viola Beach, while You Me At Six have today played a secret set on The Pit Stage. They dedicated their final song to late Architects guitarist Tom Searle.

Meanwhile, EDM duo Jack Ü debuted their eagerly-anticipated collaboration with Florence and the Machine during their set at Reading Festival last night. The track, reportedly titled ‘Constellations Around My Heart’, has since made its way online.

Also last night, Disclosure’s Guy Lawrence joined Foals on stage during the Oxford band’s headline set. Foals closed out the Friday night of the festival with one of their oldest songs ‘Two Steps Twice’, enlisting Lawrence to help drummer Jack Bevan with the percussion.
