The line up for two of the biggest festivals in the UK, Leeds and Reading, have been officially confirmed tonight after leaking onto the internet earlier today.
A large majority of the acts set to play the famous events were posted at 7pm on the dot, with fans rushing to purchase their tickets that went on sale at quarter past.
With three sets of acts that will cover seven stages at each location over the three day bank holiday weekend, the rumours of the headliners proved to be true with My Chemical Romance, The Strokes and Muse sharing the top billing for the festivals. Other big acts set to perform infront of the huge audience on the main stage include Elbow, Pulp, Thirty Second to Mars and Interpol.
Over on the NME/Radio 1 Stage, Liam Gallagher’s new band Beady Eye will be headlining one of the days, with Jane’s Addiction and 2manydjs taking the top slot for the others. White Lies, Crystal Castles and The Streets are also set to play the same stage before their respective headliners.
More acts scheduled to perform are expected to be announced closer to the festival.
As well as playing host to some of the biggest rock bands in music, Reading and Leeds will also be offering comedy over on The Alternative Stage, with comedians such as Russell Kane, Tim Minchin and Lee Nelson booked to appear.
The festival will take place at Richfield Avenue in Reading and Bramham Park in Leeds over the August bank holiday weekend (26th-28th).
