Reading Festival Bio Top
In a year where Reading & Leeds Festivals have announced not three, but four of the world’s biggest acts as headliners for 2014, the line-up continues to grow with over 50 additions across the stages. This year looks set to be the strongest yet with the best of UK and world talent across rock, indie, dance, alternative, grime and hip-hop and with only 120 days to go, the all-encompassing line-up remains completely unrivalled. Reading & Leeds Festivals are the best way to spend your August Bank Holiday weekend!
This year sees one of the most spectacular Main Stage line-ups ever! Undisputed modern rock gods Queens Of The Stone Age and pop-rock superstars Paramore share headline duties alongside the completely inimitable Arctic Monkeys and pop-punk legends Blink-182.
With a supporting cast including Vampire Weekend, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, You Me At Six, Jake Bugg, Imagine Dragons, Foster The People and Deaf Havana there are now even more names set to tear up the Main Stage. Completing the line-up for the Main Stage are Brighton indie-punk duo Blood Red Shoes, Japanese metallers Crossfaith, Dry the River, Leeds boys Pulled Apart By Horses, punk trio Gnarwolves, nu-metal luminaries Papa Roach, UK rock kings Young Guns and pop punk champions Tonight Alive and The Story So Far.
