As if Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Disclosure and Foals weren’t enough to top an extremely well-stacked lineup for the annual Reading & Leeds festival, a final lineup announcement has brought out a double whammy, as Fall Out Boy and Biffy Clyro are on their way to the massive UK festival.
Joining the two new headlining acts will be The Vaccines, Chvrches, A$AP Rocky, Die Antwoord, Travi$ Scott, The Wombats, Savages, Jack Garratt, Skindred, and The Neighbourhood, among a few others.
Along with the rest of the headliners mentioned above, Reading & Leeds now has 5 headliners stretched over a 3-day festival. The festival falls just in time for Biffy Clyro’s new album release. The Scottish rock outfit headlined Reading & Leeds back in 2013. Fall Out Boy has also claimed to be recording brand-new stuff in the studio, some of which will hopefully be tested out at this year’s edition of R&L.
Festival boss Melvin Benn is extremely elated with the proceedings. “Five headliners across three days – it’s a first for us and the UK Festival scene. We’re always looking to give Reading and Leeds fans something new and this year isn’t going to disappoint. Biffy Clyro and Fall Out Boy are going to be incredible,” he says.
This annual extravaganza is all set to take place from the 26th to the 28th of March, and with a lineup worth boasting about, festival-goers in the UK are in for a tiring but awesome weekend!
