aaamusic | On 15, Jun 2011
The biggest names in music from all over the world are to be found at the Reading & Leeds Festival – but one of the things they are most proud of is showcasing the Main Stage headliners of tomorrow on the Festival Republic Stage. Joining the previously announced PETER DOHERTY, THE HORRORS and THE MIDNIGHT BEAST is a breath-taking bill of the coolest and most talked about artists around today. We can enjoy swaggering rock from BROTHER, dance to the finest electronic sounds from DIGITALISM and bounce to impassioned tunes from RIVAL SCHOOLS. Also performing on the stage are acts as diverse as ANNA CALVI, THE TWILIGHT SINGERS, CULTS, MARIARCHI EL BRONX and FLATS alongside many, many more names.
Just some of the artists confirmed for this year’s festival include: MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, THE STROKES, PULP, MUSE, BEADY EYE, JANE’S ADDICTION, 2MANYDJS, THE STREETS, UNKLE Sounds, SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO, MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES and DESCENDENTS. You can also enjoy spoken word and comedy from the likes of MARK THOMAS, RUSSELL KANE, TIM MINCHIN, HENRY ROLLINS and LEE NELSON and others on the Alternative Stage
Reading & Leeds Festivals take place on Friday 26th to Sunday 28th August at Little John’s Farm in Reading and Bramham Park in Leeds.
So far the bill for the Main Stage, NME/Radio 1 Stage, Dance Stage, Lock Up Stage, (most of) The Alternative Stage and now the Festival Republic Stage have been announced making it the finest line up of any festival in the world this summer. More is yet to come however with the BBC Introducing Stage line up coming soon.
