The multi-award winning Arctic Monkeys are also lined up for the Main Stage on Saturday at Reading and Sunday at Leeds. Anyone who saw their sensational performance at the BRIT Awards this year knows their exclusive English and Wales festival sets are not be missed.
The main stage is beginning to fill itself up with some major talent now with Imagine Dragons, Foster The People, the Grammy Award winning Vampire Weekend and one of 2013’s biggest breakthrough acts Macklemore & Ryan Lewis all lined up for the weekend.
The NME/ Radio 1 stage is doing an equally good job of keeping the crowd entertained with the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club; festival big names this year, Chvrches and Clean Bandit and London hype duo Jungle all set to join the previously announced headliners Disclosure and Courteeners.
The BBC Radio 1 Dance Stage will this year host Australian superstar Flume as well as a DJ set from drum ‘n’ bass heavyweights Pendulum playing alongside already confirmed headliner Netsky Live.
