Blink 182, Metronomy & Disclosure For Reading & Leeds 2014

The pop punk trio will return to headline the event, set to take place during next August’s Bank Holiday Weekend.

Blink 182, Metronomy and Disclosure are the first of the acts to be confirmed for next year’s Reading and Leeds Festival.

The pop punk trio will return to headline the event, set to take place during next August’s Bank Holiday Weekend, after their previous stint headlining the event in 2010.

Speaking on Radio 1 tonight, where Zane Lowe revealed the first batch of acts, Mark Hoppus commented that a new album should be due before their appearance. ‘We are coming with new material’, he told the host. ‘We go into the studio after the holidays, and the goal is to have an album out in time for the festival.’

Elsewhere, Metronomy and Disclosure have been confirmed to appear on the NME/Radio 1 stage, whilst Jake Bugg, Of Mice & Men, Wilkinson and I Am Legion have been announced to appear elsewhere on next year’s line-up.

Reading and Leeds 2014 will take place from 22nd to 24th August 2014.
