Reading and Leeds Unveil First Seven Acts for 2015


The year is almost over and that means festivals are already getting prepared to unveil the artists who will be taking the stage at each of them in no time at all.

Before long, this website will be having a hard time keeping up to date with all the festivals, their performers list, festival dates and live streams because of the on slaughter we usually get, but we won’t complain, it’s all fun. .

Today, Reading and Leeds decided to get a jump-start on their line-up
by announcing the first wave of artists who will be heading across the pond to perform at the annual event.

As of now, the list only has seven names, but hey that’s a start.

Metallica will be headlining next Summer’s event while Jamie T., Pierce the Veil, Run the Jewels, Manchester Orchestra and Wilkinson Live have been confirmed.

Also slated to perform at Reading and Leeds? Refused.

For some, this news is a little shocking since the band had said it was done once their reunion tour was over. It was also revealed Refused will be playing the Amnesia Rockfest in Quebec next Summer as well, so we’re not sure if they meant it when they said they were “done” especially since they’ve been dropping cryptic hints of a new record for next year.

Check out the first of many flyers with the line-up.


Reading and Leeds will take place during the weekend of Aug. 28-30, 2015.
