During this cold, dark January, festival season seems as though it’s a lifetime away. Which is why we’re grateful for the lovely people of Reading & Leeds Festival for getting us all excited with today’s awesome line up announcement.
This year’s co-headliners are none other than Foals and Disclosure, who will be performing at what will undoubtedly be one of *the* greatest weekends of the year.
Oxford five-piece Foals are no strangers to Reading & Leeds Festival, having played a surprise set last year and the fact that they’re returning as headliner has the band “buzzing”.
Foals said: “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”.
Dance act Disclosure have been taking the UK dance world by storm since the release of their number one album, ‘Settle’, back in 2013. A year later in 2014 and the duo had crowds overflowing at the NME/Radio 1 Stage, so news that they will headline this year comes as no surprise!
Also announced today are Imagine Dragons, Jack Ü, Two Door Cinema Club, Fetty Wap, Nothing But Thieves, Crystal Castles and Parkway Drive, among others!
They will all be joining Red Hot Chili Peppers, The 1975, Courteeners, Twenty One Pilots and Eagles of Death Metal, who have been previously announced.
