Billie Eilish is now playing the Main Stage at Reading & Leeds 2019

No more getting squashed in a tent this August.

Bille Eilish’s set at this summer’s Reading & Leeds festivals have been upgraded.

Yep, you’ve no need to worry about if you’re going to get squashed in a tent – the pop sensation has been shifted to the Main Stage of the August event.

Appearing on the Saturday of Reading and the Sunday of Leeds, she was initially slotted in before Mura Masa on the BBC Radio 1 Stage. Now, she’ll take to the festival’s biggest platform between AJ Tracey and Anderson .Paak. Stefflon Don has moved up the bill on the Radio 1 stage to replace her.

Festival Republic’s Managing Director, Melvin Benn, said of Eilish’s upgrade: “Following the meteoric rise of Billie Eilish since we first booked her on the line-up, we are thrilled to be moving her to the Main Stage to allow as many fans as possible to see what we are sure is going to be one of the highlights of the weekend.”

Reading & Leeds takes place between 23rd and 25th August, and will be headlined by the 1975, Twenty One Pilots, Post Malone and Foo Fighters. Reading is now completely sold out, with very limited weekend and day tickets still available for Leeds.
