Kasabian head latest wave of Reading & Leeds announcements

Kasabian have joined Muse as headliners of this year's Reading & Leeds festivals. 

The band, who last headlined the twin event in 2012, led the second wave of announcements for 2017. They are due to release their sixth studio album this spring.

“I’m thrilled to be able to announce Kasabian as the second headliner for Reading and Leeds," said Melvin Benn, MD of promoter Festival Republic. "It’s been five years since they played; I’m excited about what this memorable headline performance will bring."

Other acts added to the bill include Two Door Cinema Club, Flume, Fatboy Slim, Wiley, Circa Waves, Jimmy Eat World, Amity Affliction and Rat Boy, joining previously announced performers including Major Lazer, Bastille, At The Drive In, Architects and Tory Lanez. 

"The Reading and Leeds line-up is already shaping up to be one of the best yet, and I’m looking forward to revealing the third and final headliner soon,” added Benn.
