Check out the full line-up below:

Following last year’s sold-out summer shows at the London Stadium and Manchester’s Etihad Stadium, Foo Fighters will return to the UK to headline Reading and Leeds. One of the most iconic rock bands of all time, the Foos have sold over 30 million albums worldwide, and are renowned for their epic live sets.

Twenty One Pilots will be bringing their incredible live show to the festivals this summer. The headline appearance from the Grammy Award-winning duo comes hot off the heels of their hugely anticipated Bandito UK tour dates.

After their wonderful headline set on the BBC Radio 1 Stage in 2016, The 1975’s frontman Matt Healy promised fans that one day the band will headline Reading and Leeds main stage. Well, it looks like he was right. The Manchester band are currently gearing up for the release of their new album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.

Post Malone returns to headline Reading and Leeds after a triumphant debut on the main stage last year. Posty will be the first act since Nirvana to go from the afternoon slot to headliner with a sophomore album in consecutive years.
