Festival Crowd Header
Queens Of The Stone Age

This year sees amazing Main Stage co-headliner shows from rock heroes Queens Of The Stone Age and pop-rock trailblazers Paramore who share the prestigious stage on Friday at Reading and Saturday at Leeds in their only UK performances of 2014.

They join headliners pop-punk legends Blink-182, who perform their only UK shows of 2014 on the Sunday at Reading and Friday at Leeds, and the inimitable multi BRIT and NME Award winning Arctic Monkeys who will grace the stage in an England and Wales festival exclusive set on Saturday at Reading and Sunday at Leeds.

With festival veterans You Me At Six returning to Reading & Leeds and Jake Bugg making a well-deserved step up to the Main Stage, the line-up is certainly taking shape! The Grammy Award winning, Vampire Weekend and multi Grammy Award-winning hip-hop duo and one of the biggest breakthrough acts of 2013, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis hit the Main Stage for what promises to be an incredible set alongside fellow Americans Imagine Dragons and Foster The People, and the UK’s Deaf Havana.

Over on the NME/Radio 1 Stage alongside previously announced headliners Disclosure and Courteeners are the incredible Bombay Bicycle Club, who return to the Festivals with their exceptional new Number One album ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’, as well as catchy electronic pop group Chvrches, UK single chart toppers Clean Bandit and mysterious London hype duo Jungle.

This year’s BBC Radio 1 Dance Stage is shaping up to be as exciting as ever with already confirmed headliners Netsky Live joined by Australian superstar Flume and a special DJ set from drum ‘n’ bass heavyweights Pendulum.

Across the festival there will be performances from Klaxons, David Rodigan MBE, Lower Than Atlantis, Boys Noize, Danny Brown, Eagulls, The Fat White Family and many more.

With many more acts to be announced in the coming weeks across these stages, as well as the Festival Republic Stage, Lock Up Stage, The Pit, BBC Introducing Stage and the Alternative Stage, this year promises to be one of the best yet for the UK’s best Festivals!
