Guns N' Roses Headline Reading

Leeds & Reading Festival Alerts

Guns N' Roses, Arcade Fire and Blink-182 have been confirmed as headliners for this year's Reading and Leeds festivals.

The US groups will each top the bill on one night of the three-day event - which takes place on two sites between August 27-29 - with Dizzee Rascal, Paramore, Biffy Clyro and Queens of the Stone Age also performing.

As has previously been reported, The Libertines - Carl Barat, Pete Doherty, Gary Powell and John Hassall - have reformed for the event, playing their first shows together in almost six years.

Guns N' Roses - who play Reading on the first day and Leeds on the final night - are still fronted by Axl Rose, but feature no other original members.

Other artists playing across the three-day event include Lostprophets, Limp Bizkit, Weezer, Mumford and Sons, The Gaslight Anthem, LCD Soundsystem, We Are Scientists and Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke.

Tickets are priced £180 for a weekend ticket and £75 for day passes and are on sale now.
