Reading & Leeds festival has just announced that Disclosure will be headlining this year’s event, taking place across the August Bank Holiday Weekend.
Despite the festival being known primarily as a rock fest, the dance duo will join Foals to headline the main stage and take their stunning live act to the masses.
Melvin Benn has said: “I couldn’t be more excited about this announcement. A co -headline with two of the most promising British acts out there; Foals secret set last year was a highlight for me, as I’m sure their debut headline slot will be, coupled with the phenomenal Disclosure – we’re very proud to be able to give these acts the recognition they deserve.”
While Disclosure commented: "We’re incredibly excited to be co-headlining Reading and Leeds with our good friends Foals. We've been going to Reading festival since we were kids and have played at both festivals several times, but never in a million years did we think we'd be at the top of the line-up, especially considering there hasn't been an electronic headliner since The Prodigy in 2002! Truly honoured."
