Reading & Leeds Festival is set to announce more names for this year’s event later today (14th March).

Writing on social media, the festival announced they’ll be dropping new names at midday.

In the first batch of names for 2022, the August event announced their six Main Stage headliners.

Operating the East and West stages for a second year, Dave, Megan Thee Stallion, Arctic Monkeys, Bring Me The Horizon, Rage Against The Machine and Halsey will top the bill at the double legged event next August bank holiday weekend.

They’ll be joined on the line-up by the likes of Glass Animals, Wolf Alice, Little Simz, Fontaines DC, Bastille, Run The Jewels, Maneskin, Enter Shikari, Circa Waves, Griff, PinkPantheress, Wallows, The Lathums, Chloe Moriondo, Pale Waves and more.

It’s the first big UK show for Arctic Monkeys announced around what we’re expecting to be a new album in 2022, following up on a bunch of European bill-toppers already revealed. Dave will be the youngest ever solo artist to headline Reading & Leeds, while Halsey’s ‘If I can’t Have Love I Want Power’ show looks set to be a definite highlight.
