Reading and Leeds: Foo Fighters, The 1975, Post Malone to headline

Reading & Leeds have announced The 1975, Post Malone, Twenty One Pilots and Foo Fighters as the headliners for their 2019 festival.

Next year’s festival will take place from August 23-25, 2019, with the two sites’ traditional venues of Richfield Avenue (Reading) and Bramham Park (Leeds) being retained once again.

Four huge acts have been announced for the festival that attracts 100,000 revellers to the town every year

The huge festival in Reading, Berkshire hosts hundreds of talented acts ranging from singer songwriters and world beating bands to comedians and DJs.

Four headliners have now been announced for the festival: The 1975, Post Malone, Twenty One Pilots and Foo Fighters.

The band from Seattle has been going strong since 1994 with classics such as The Pretender, Learn to Fly, Times Like These and The Best of You.

Foo Fighters have a pedigree for huge performances, being headliners at Glastonbury Festival in 2017.

The group apparently have two new albums on the way, so are sure to be rattling through them as they grace the Main Stage.

Post Malone will be heading back to Reading next year after an afternoon slot at the festival on the Friday in 2018.

The American singer and rapper is popular for tracks such as Rockstar, Congratulations and Go Flex.

His visit to the festival in 2018 almost met with disaster after problems with his private jet emerged in the skies over New York.

The band was formed in 2009, and have gained a huge following from songs such as Stressed Out and Heathens, the official song for the 2016 DC movie Suicide Squad.

The two are coming back to Reading after an admittedly rocky performance in 2016, when lead singer Tyler Joseph had his shirt ripped and lost shoe while crowdsurfing.

They will be joined by northern indie pop band Blossoms, who were last at the festival in 2017 but will be back with a bunch of new songs and some experience touring Europe.

Also, world-beating British band Bastille are sure to excite fans, having a long back catalogue stretching from UK Number 1 album Bad Blood to current global smash Happier, and their hotly anticipated forthcoming album Doom Days.

For those who want a healthy dose of nostalgia, legendary pop-punk pioneers Bowling For Soup are sure to get the crowd going with anthems such as Girl All the Bad Boys Want and High School Never Ends.

In the rap-osphere, fans can look forward to performances from XXL Freshman Stefflon Don and grime star YUNGBLUD.

So the festival is sure to be as packed as ever with great performances thatll make the crowds go wild.
