The Lathums, Willow & More Added To Line-Up For Reading & Leeds 2022
Headliners for this year’s event include Arctic Monkeys, Halsey and Rage Against The Machine.
Reading & Leeds 2022 has announced a wave of new additions with The Lathums, Willow, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and more added to the festival line-up.
The dual-site event will return to Little John’s Farm in Reading and Bramham Park in Leeds on August Bank Holiday Weekend, August 26-28. Some single day tickets are still available, though weekend tickets have now sold out.
This year’s R&L will once again boast six headliners: Arctic Monkeys, Rage Against The Machine, Dave, Bring Me The Horizon, Halsey and Megan Thee Stallion. Elsewhere, there’ll be performances from the likes of Wolf Alice, Fontaines D.C. and Run The Jewels.
Today (March 14) organizers have confirmed 77 new acts also including Willow, All Time Low, Poppy, Bad Boy Chiller Crew, Beabadoobee and DMA’s.
Also among the latest additions are Black Honey, Gorgon City, Pa Salieu, 100 Gecs, Krept & Konan and more. You can see the full list of new names (a-z) below.
Arctic Monkeys will headline Reading & Leeds for the third of their career, having revealed last November that their seventh album was “pretty much” finished. They’ll perform on the Main Stage East on Saturday, August 27 (Reading) and Sunday, August 28 (Leeds).
Alex Turner and his team’s fellow Sheffield band Bring Me The Horizon are due to close the Main Stage West on those same days. Speaking to NME about what to expect, BMTH frontman Oli Sykes said: “We’re gonna go hard. We’ll make sure it’s insane.”
