Blink 182, Jake Bugg, Disclosure & Metronomy Announced To Play Reading & Leeds Festival

Blink 182 have been announced to headline Reading & Leeds Festival over the bank holiday weekend in August 2014 in what will be their only UK show next year. The band first played the festival in 2009 before headlining in 2010.

Mark Hoppus from the band said “I’m stoked to play Reading & Leeds 2014.  It’s our fourth time playing the festivals, and we’re very honoured.  The new year will see us in the studio preparing new music, getting ready to rock the fine people of the UK.  Prepare for the fury.”

Joining them on the line up will be Jake Bugg, Disclosure, Metronomy, Of Mice & Men, Wilkinson and I Am Legion who have been announced in the first batch of performers this evening.

Although still a young ‘un Jake Bugg is no stranger to Leeds & Reading having appeared on the Festival Republic Stage in 2012. He said “Reading & Leeds have become a bit of a regular feature of my summers lately, so it’s amazing to be asked back again. I was just kind of starting out the first time I played and it was a really important gig for me. Playing this year was fun and seemed like lots more people knew the songs; it was great hearing everyone singing the words back at me. I’m sure playing on the Main Stage will be a different experience again, so it’s exciting. I’ve got my new album out so there’s plenty of time for people to learn the words. It should be pretty special.”
