Metallica to headline Reading and Leeds festival in 2015
Just as people are still high on the Reading and Leeds festival 2014, the news about next years festival has come in confirming that Metallica will be headlining next years Reading and Leeds festival along with a few more of our favourite performers. Arctic Monkeys, Blink-182, Paramore and Queens of the stoneage headlined the 2014 Reading and Leeds festival and this year will be even better!
Metallica has managed to sell more than 110 million copies of their records worldwide and often perform at many festivals. They first performed at the Reading and Leeds festival 18 years ago and 2015 will be the fourth time they will be performing the headlining act in the Reading and Leeds rock festival. Metallica also performed at Glastonbury festival last summer and the audience was quite thrilled in spite of mixed feelings prior to the festival.
Along side Metallica, song-writer Jamie T will also be giving a performance at the festival and hip hop band Run the Jewels are also on the list. Additionally, Pierce the Veil, Refused, Wilkinson and Manchester Orchestra have also sent in their confirmation about performing next year. The list is still incomplete as there will be two more bands joining the headlining list. It would not be that long until the announcement of the remaining two bands.
Melvin Benn, the festival manager adds,
“I’m looking forward to revealing the rest of the Festival line-up which will feature the absolute best of rock, indie, dance and hip hop and will only add to the amazing atmosphere that makes Reading and Leeds so special.”
The festival usually takes place over three days, starting on Friday and ending on Sunday. There are also special events at the festival where the bands give early preview of their upcoming albums but that comes at an extra cost. The 2015 event will take place from the 28th to 30th of August. The first wave of tickets has already been sold and the second batch of weekend tickets are now available at a starting cost of £205 plus that booking fee.
