Five more acts have joined the bill for Reading & Leeds 2021.
Charli XCX (pictured), Yungblud, Sigrid, Neck Deep and Jack Harlow have been added to the first lot of names, announced just a few days ago.
Returning from the 2020 bill, Stormzy and Liam Gallagher are retained for next year’s event, and will be joined by Post Malone, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Disclosure and Queens of the Stone Age.
In promoting the event last week, organiser Melvin Benn claimed this would be ‘the most all encompassing and inclusive Reading & Leeds line-up ever’. However, despite growing criticism in recent years 2021’s bill continues a run of male-only headline acts that goes back to Paramore’s 2014 co-headline slot, which saw them close the main stage in Leeds.
Elsewhere on the bill, are Two Door Cinema Club, Lewis Capaldi, Beabadoobee, 100 Gecs, Ashnikko, AJ Tracey, Doja Cat, Da Baby, Fever 333, Mabel, Sofi Tukker, Lyra, Madison Beer and MK, with more names across music and comedy to be announced.
Reading & Leeds 2021 will take place between 27th-29th August.
