Reading & Leeds

Leeds Reading lineup receives mixed reception from fans

13th February 2018 Off By

Leeds & Reading festivals have today released their 2018 lineup, featuring headline performances from Fall Out Boy, Kendrick Lamar, and Kings of Leon.

They join a varied lineup featuring performances from Wolf Alice, Panic! At The Disco, Sum 41, Skepta, and Wretch 32.

Reading’s closing Sunday night, and Leeds’ opening Friday night, will also include performances from The Courteeners, The Wombats, and Diplo.

The announcement received a mixed reaction from fans on Twitter, and many were so critical of the festival’s choices they felt the need to share their own preferred lineup.

Charlie Burgess joked about the fate of those who’d purchased early bird tickets.

Josh’s selective vision found clues pointing to a Arctic Monkeys secret set at Reading and/or Leeds this summer.

Some were pleased with the lineup, featuring a wide variety of acts from across the genres. With an increased capacity of 110,000 and a multiplicity of stages, you’ll likely struggle to find yourself bored at Reading or Leeds despite the reaction on social media.  A widely circulated ‘leaked’ lineup poster was proved to be false, and it seems much of the criticism centres on the absence of big name acts from the fabricated poster.
