Kings Of Leon Set For Reading And Leeds Fest


Kings of Leon have signed on for a headlining performance at the upcoming Reading and Leeds Festivals. This year the band joins an impressive lineup of headliners set for the twin city event including Fall Out Boy and Kendrick Lamar.

The festivals are set to take place between August 24 and 26. This will be the second time that Kings of Leon have served as headliners for the event, having previously appeared back in 2009.

"Reading and Leeds prides itself on being a music-first festival and this year's line-up already proves that," said Festival Republic boss Melvin Benn. "Kings of Leon and Fall Out Boy are bands that have grown with the festival and its fans and we couldn't be more pleased to invite them back to headline. Adding Panic! at the Disco and Kendrick Lamar, probably the most sought-after act in the world right now, we think Reading and Leeds Festivals 2018 are off to an amazing start - with even more to come, so watch this space."

Fall Out Boy said of their headlining slot:

"There are very few places that can illustrate the growth of our band from its beginning. However, Reading and Leeds is one of them. It is an honour to be able to headline a festival that we grew up playing and dreaming of that top spot."
