Are you excited or disappointed?
The famed ‘rock’ festival based in Reading and Leeds, has announced the headliners for next years August event.

The full list of acts can be seen below, with artists such as Bastille and Juice WRLD involved.
Last years event featured Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, Kendrick Lamar, Kings of Leon and Post Malone. The entire event was divisive among fans, who believed that the event had lost its ‘rock’ identity. Some fans may be disappointed with next year’s event due to the lack of rock bands in the list, but more will be announced very soon.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, November 23rd at 9am.
