The first wave of acts have been announced for Reading & Leeds Festival 2018. Check out the full line-up so far and fan reactions below.
Heading up the bill are Fall Out Boy, Kendrick Lamar, Kings Of Leon, Courteeners, Wolf Alice, Skepta, and Panic! At The Disco, as the iconic festivals returns to both cities across Bank Holiday Weekend. Many more names will be added in the weeks and months ahead.
“There are very few places that can illustrate the growth of our band from its beginning,” said Fall Out Boy, as they return to headline. “However, Reading and Leeds is one of them. It is an honour to be able to headline a festival that we grew up playing and dreaming of that top spot.”
Kendrick Lamar also returns to Reading & Leeds, but makes his debut with the coveted headline slot off the back of his acclaimed DAMN. UK arena tour – which concludes this week.
Other highlights include Brockhampton, Sigrid, J Hus, Dua Lipa, Pale Waves, Hudson Taylor and Dream Wife.
“Reading and Leeds prides itself on being a music-first festival and this year’s line-up already proves that,” said Festival Republic boss Melvin Benn. “Kings of Leon and Fall Out Boy are bands that have grown with the festival and its fans and we couldn’t be more pleased to invite them back to headline.
“Adding Panic! at the Disco and Kendrick Lamar, probably the most sought-after act in the world right now, we think Reading and Leeds Festivals 2018 are off to an amazing start – with even more to come, so watch this space.”
