Leeds Festival (Gary Mather for Live4ever)

The first wave of acts for Reading & Leeds 2018 have been unveiled, including headliners Fall Out Boy, Kendrick Lamar, Panic! At The Disco and Kings Of Leon.

Fall Out Boy will top Reading’s first night during the UK’s August Bank Holiday weekend, with Kendrick Lamar and Panic! At The Disco at Reading on the Saturday and Leeds on the Sunday, and Kings Of Leon headlining Leeds’ opening day and Reading’s final day.

The Courteeners, Sum 41, Skepta, The Magic Gang and Pale Waves are some more confirmed bands. “Reading and Leeds prides itself on being a music-first festival and this year’s line-up already proves that,” reflects organiser Melvin Benn.

“Kings of Leon and Fall Out Boy are bands that have grown with the festival and its fans and we couldn’t be more pleased to invite them back to headline.”

“Adding Panic! at the Disco and Kendrick Lamar, probably the most sought-after act in the world right now, we think Reading and Leeds Festivals 2018 are off to an amazing start – with even more to come, so watch this space.”
