The Strokes Favourites To Confirm Reading And Leeds Headline Slot

The band are widely expected to headline the event.

The headline acts for this year’s Reading and Leeds Festival will be announced this Monday, 21st March.

Last year, Blink 182, Arcade Fire and Guns N Roses headlined the event, and this year’s headline acts will be announced just before tickets are released, with The Strokes widely expected to be involved following the release of their new album.

Muse are another band that have been rumoured to top the bill, with names such as Elbow, My Chemical Romance, Deftones, Pulp, Interpol, The Offspring and White Lies also thought to be lined up to appear across the weekend.

Reading Festival will take place at Richfield Avenue from the 25th to 28th August, whilst Leeds Festival will run on the same weekend at Bramham Park.

Reading and Leeds Festival tickets will go on sale at 7pm on Monday 21st March.
