The Libertines have a close association with Reading and Leeds.
The band reformed in 2012, playing a spectacular set at the twin site festival. Coming together last year to focus on their third album, The Libertines have clearly decided that Reading and Leeds is the perfect testing ground.
Set to headline the festival, Pete 'n' Carl 'n' the lads will be joined by fellow headliners Metallica and Mumford & Sons. An anonymous note from the band states:
"Yeah, so I just woke up but like, I dunno, I just can't stop thinking about Reading and Leeds and how much I'm looking forward to playing Reading & Leeds 2015."
Tickets are on sale now. Reading and Leeds festival runs between August 28th – 30th.
