The twin event will take place this year simultaneously at Richfield Avenue in Reading and Bramham Park, Leeds over the August Bank Holiday weekend (August 26-28). This year’s festival will be headlined by Red Hot Chili Peppers, as well as two pairs of co-headliners: Biffy Clyro and Fall Out Boy, plus Foals and Disclosure.
In addition to the headliners and these new acts, Reading & Leeds organisers previously announced that Chvrches, The Vaccines, A$AP Rocky, Travi$ Scott, Haim, Eagles of Death Metal, Slaves, Savages, Two Door Cinema Club, Fetty Wap and Jack Garratt are all set to appear over the weekend.
Co-headliners Foals previously about their line-up slot: “We’re absolutely buzzing to be headlining Reading & Leeds this year. It’s a dream come true. We’ve worked our way up on our own terms & to be given the chance to headline one of world’s most iconic festivals is a huge achievement for us & hopefully a sign for all bands, that, if you stick to your guns & focus on what matters, you’ll get there & smash it. Onwards & upwards friends. Long live the guitar band.”
2015’s festival was headlined by Mumford and Sons, Metallica and The Libertines.
