With huge headline performances set from the likes of Kasabian, Eminem and Muse, even more names have been confirmed for their standout moment in the sun on those iconic Reading & Leeds Main Stages. Along with the unmissable returns of Liam Gallagher and PVRIS, politically-charged garage rockers VANT will be making the step up, following on from a festival-stopping set on last year’s Festival Republic Stage.

Their debut album Dumb Blood radiated unstoppable hits, so expect their performance at this year’s festival to be a journey into unfiltered riffs in full glory. Grunge-tinged indie-pop pair Honeyblood will lay out tracks from second studio album Babes Never Die at the festivals, with LA blues rock duo Deap Vally will be bringing Femejism to both sites, and frenetic London quartet Judas heading back to the Main Stage after their sensational last-minute slot at Leeds last year.


Lynn Gunn, PVRIS

“We are incredibly grateful to be performing again at Reading & Leeds. Our first experience at the festival was phenomenal and took us completely by surprise. We are excited to see what comes from it this time around and perhaps even play some new tunes *wink wink*”


Deap Vally

“We can’t wait to return to the R & L stage and show everyone how it’s done”!



“We feel totally honoured and privileged to be asked to open the main stage this year. We have been working so hard for so long and it’s amazing to be rewarded with the chance to play the main stage at the best music festival in the U.K. Thank you to everyone who has supported us, see you in August! Let’s have it”


“Mega excited to be playing Reading and Leeds this year! It’s such a legendary festival and it’s an absolute dream come true be on the main stage.”
