Reading and Leeds festival 2018
Will it rain or shine this week...?

It's almost time for Reading and Leeds festival, the annual dual-site music extravaganza.

Running across the August Bank Holiday weekend, this year's line caused consternation amongst staid rockists, but delighted fans with its breadth and commitment to new music.

Kendrick Lamar, Fall Out Boy, and Kings Of Leon will headline, with the bill boasting slots from Brockhampton, Post Malone, Wolf Alice, Panic! At The Disco, and a whole lot more.

Since the two sites have such different weather forecasts we're splitting this news item - check HERE for the Leeds weather prediction...

Reading festival is set to have a largely warm and dry weekend, with the Met Office predicting highs of 18 degrees Celsius on Friday (August 24th).

Saturday finds the temperatures rising just a notch, peaking at 19 degrees Celsius with cloud cover preventing it from soaring even higher.

Sunday will be slightly cooler, though, with an 80% chance of rain around 4pm - so best pack a poncho alongside your smalls.

Find the full Met Office breakdown HERE.

Reading and Leeds festival runs between August 24th - 26th.
