Transgressive announce Reading & Leeds late-night takeovers

They'll host bands and DJ sets on the Alternative Stage after 9.30pm.
Transgressive Records will host a late-night takeover at this year’s Reading & Leeds.

Taking over the Alternative Stage from 9.30pm at Reading on Friday, and Leeds on Saturday and Sunday, they’ll host the Fat White Family (Sun), Honne (Sun) and Loyle Carner (Sun), alongside DJ sets from Peace vs Hinds (Fri), Huw Stephens vs Pulled Apart By Horses (Fri), Transgressive Sound System vs Rockfeedback DJs (Fri), Jen Long vs Bless DJs (Fri), Metronomy (Sat), and Super Hans (Sun).

Toby L, co-founder of Transgressive, says: “Every year the Transgressive Takeover at Reading and Leeds gets bigger and bigger, and it’s such a joy to return once again in 2016. Last year the legendary Mike Skinner and Jackmaster killed it, whilst prior to that the likes of Kelis, London Grammar, Disclosure, Two Door Cinema Club, SBTRKT and so many more have always ensured true variety and class. 

“This time, we cannot wait to welcome Loyle Carner – one of the most important new artists on the planet right now – to the stage, plus Fat White Family, Honne and all our guest DJs, not least a very welcome return from Metronomy. Meanwhile, God only knows what Super-Hans has in store for us; his first ever Glastonbury appearance this summer is already the stuff of legend.

“After the headliners finish, come and pay us a visit – we’ll be expecting you.”

Reading & Leeds will take place from 26th – 28th August, with headline sets from Disclosure, Foals, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fall Out Boy and Biffy Clyro. Tickets are on sale now.
