[News] Reading & Leeds Festival Line-up Announced. Foo Fighters, The Cure, Kasabian Headlining

Every bank holiday weekend in August a music festival takes place in Leeds and Reading, both of which have the same line-up playing alternate days and as preciously reported, last night the line-up was finally released. Rumours had been flying around for quite some time about who would be making an appearance and it's always nice when the rumours become a reality. As you can see from the above poster, arena conquerors Foo Fighters will return to their comfortable headline slot with The Black Keys playing before them. The Cure will also make a return to the festival, their first in 30 years! Paramore will play beneath them. Florence & The Machine will also play beneath Kasabian on the 3rd day.

Other artists announced in this first round include Justice, Maccabees and At The Drive in heading up the NME stage with the line-up being filled out by riff mongrels Pulled Apart By Horses who will open up main stage on the Friday at Leeds. Also filling out the bill are Cancer Bats, Crystal Castles, The Cribs, Miike Snow, The Horrors and SBTRKT. The Shins will make their return also! Soak it all in and make the jump to see which bands play which day at the two festivals. See you there!
