We can now announce that Mumford & Sons are the second Main Stage headliners to join Metallica at Reading & Leeds 2015!
The British rock band last appeared at Reading & Leeds in 2010 when they performed a triumphant set to a packed NME/BBC Radio 1 Stage. The band return to Reading & Leeds just four years later as Festival headliners.
Festival boss Melvin Benn comments:
“I’m delighted to have secured Mumford & Sons for Main Stage headliners this summer and can’t wait to see them return to the Festivals for their first UK performance in over two years. With today’s announcement of a further eight great acts joining the bill, the Reading & Leeds line-up is already shaping up to be one of the best ever and I’m looking forward to revealing the third headliner and even more great artists soon.”
Reading & Leeds continue to tear-up the festival season by securing performances from some of the biggest bands around.
