Our big summer continues with our sixth visit to Reading and Leeds Festival with a stage that includes Slaves, Sundara Karma, I Divide and Lonely The Brave. It all takes place on the upcoming Bank Holiday weekend (August 23rd-25th). 

The line-up is listed below with a number of acts to be added to our bill including our headliners for each night. The acts were nominated by their local BBC Introducing show and then selected by our panel of industry experts.

You may recognise some of the acts that have previously featured on the BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra playlists for BBC Introducing including Zaheer, Mausi, Peasant’s King, We Are Fiction and Man Can’t Fly along with a host of new and exciting talent from across the UK.

In previous years, acts such as Rizzle Kicks, Don Broco, Young Guns and The Joy Formidable have graced our stage at Reading and Leeds and last year we were treated to headline sets from Mikill Pane, Tall Ships and Hawk Eyes.

We’ll be putting photos and videos online all weekend for those that can’t make it along and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates ahead of and during the festival. Bring it on.
