Story by Jack Foley

FOO Fighters, Twenty One Pilots, The 1975 and Post Malone have been confirmed as the 2019 headliners for the Reading and Leeds Festival.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, November 23 at 9am for the events, which take place next August Bank Holiday weekend (August 23-25) at Reading’s famous Richfield Avenue and Leeds’ legendary Bramham Park.

Following up their sold out shows at the London Stadium (twice) and Manchester’s Etihad, the world’s biggest rock band, Foo Fighters, will make their triumphant return to headline Reading and Leeds in 2019. Expect every one of the tens of thousands voices in attendance to be raised with every deafening chorus as Foo Fighters run through dozens of classics spanning their massive catalogue.

Grammy Award-Winning Twenty One Pilots (Ohioans Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun) will be bringing their incendiary live show to Reading and Leeds fresh off the back of their worldwide ‘Bandito’ tour and career-defining show’s at London’s Wembley Arena. The alternative, electro-rockers have inspired a global movement with their flair for dramatic spectacle and world conquering ambition.

Making their Main Stage headline debut are The 1975. The Manchester four piece have had a phenomenal rise to fame over the past few years. Their new album, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, is out this month with the second in the two-part release planned for Summer 2019.

Undoubtedly one of the hottest names in the world right now, Texan superstar Post Malone returns to headline Reading & Leeds on his second ever appearance. ‘Posty’ has been on an unprecedented trajectory of success, this year drawing some of the biggest crowds over the entire festival weekend and is now the first act since Nirvana to go from afternoon to top of the bill with a sophomore album in consecutive years.
