More than 30 news acts have been confirmed for Reading & Leeds 2024, with singer-songwriter Teddy Swims, R&B girl group Flo and alternative rap trio Frozemode among those set to perform on the Radio 1 Stage.

A number of headliners have already been announced, including Fred again.., Lana Del Rey and Blink-182. A second wave of acts was also announced in February, with Dublin post-punks Fontaines D.C., rising star Nia Archives, US singer and actor Reneé Rapp, and hotly tipped indie group The Last Dinner Party among the new additions.

The festival will take place from 21 to 25 August, returning to Richfield Avenue in Reading and Bramham Park in Leeds.

Jaguar, Mette and LeoStayTrill will be gracing the Chevron, an open-air stage with a silent disco in Reading and Leeds simultaneously.

Also added to the line-up are boy band Bears in Trees, indie-rock group Swim School, TikTok star Seb Lowe, frontman of The Vamps Bradley Simpson and indie-rock quartet Dead Poet Society.

A number of acts appearing exclusively at Leeds have also been announced, including singer-songwriter ADMT, alt-rock band The Kites and punk-rock group Bilk.

The return of Leeds’ LS23 stage has also been announced, with acts such as Sota and Overmono performing.

Leeds Festival 2023 saw more people arrested for drug offences compared to the previous year, as part of a police crackdown following the death of a teenager.

Both Festival Republic and West Yorkshire Police have said safety planning for the 2024 festival had begun.

Tickets for Reading and Leeds 2024 went on general sale on 30 November 2023. Visit the festival’s official website for further information.

Beginning in 1955 as the Reading Jazz Festival, the event has been transformed and expanded over the decades, to morph into the two-site rock-alternative-metal extravaganza it is today. Because it falls right after exam season, the festival is known for drawing a younger crowd, and its occasionally riotous vibes.

Previous headliners have included The Killers, Megan Thee Stallion, Liam Gallagher, My Chemical Romance, The Strokes, Pulp, Fall Out Boy, Kendrick Lamar and Panic! At The Disco.
