More than 40 new acts have been announced for this year’s Reading & Leeds festivals, including Ashnikko, Daisy Brain, Glaive, Mallrat, Courting and more.
There’s a whole batch of Dork faves joining the bill for the event, set to take place across 26th and 28th August, including Anorak Patch, DE’WAYNE, Flowerovlove, Honeyglaze, Police Car Collective and Priestgate.
They join a bill including headliners Arctic Monkeys, Halsey, Dave, Megan thee Stallion, Bring Me The Horizon and Rage Against The Machine, plus Wolf Alice, Little Simz, Glass Animals, Fontaines D.C., Run The Jewels, Måneskin, Bastille, Pale Waves, Griff, Wallows and more.
The festival will also be hooking up with Music Declares Emergency for a new project under the No Music On A Dead Planet banner. Aiming to drive grid connections to UK festivals and begin the transition of the UK outdoor live sector to grid power, it will ultimately aim to reduce the carbon emissions for the sector in relation to temporary power generation.
