When is Reading / Leeds Festival 2018?

Where is Reading / Leeds Festival?

Elsewhere, the record-breaking Dua Lipa will play Reading and Leeds as a United Kingdom festival exclusive this summer, joined by the hotly-tipped new acts Sigrid and Pale Waves. The band spent most of 2017 touring in support of their latest album, 2016's WALLS.


And for those who want some home grown British bands, The Wombats, Courteeners, The Magic Gang and singer-songwriter Tom Grennan have all made the bill.

The first wave of acts for Reading & Leeds 2018 have been unveiled, including headliners Fall Out Boy, Kendrick Lamar, Panic!

The first batch of bands for this year's Reading & Leeds festival have been announced.

However, the upset over the line-up was predictable for some, with one music fan saying: "The annual meltdown about Reading and Leeds' line up gets funnier every year".

If something heavier is a little more your thing, UnderØath, Sum 41, Papa Roach, Waterparks, Hollywood Undead, Beartooth and Creeper are all in the mix.

"It is an honour to be able to headline a festival that we grew up playing and dreaming of that top spot".

Festival Republic's Melvin Benn said: "Reading and Leeds prides itself on being a music-first festival and this year's line-up already proves that".
