Fall Out Boy, Kendrick Lamar and Kings Of Leon will all headline the double-headed festival, which takes place between 24 and 26 August 2018 at Richfield Avenue in the South and Bramham Park in the North.

Kings of Leon have played Reading Festival many times. Tickets are on sale now and available here.

Co-headliners on the Sunday are Panic! at the Disco.

Meanwhile, Saturday in Reading (Sunday in Leeds) sees Kendrick Lamar and Panic!

What are your thoughts on the line up for Reading & Leeds so far? Many more acts to follow.

A host of DJs and dance acts have been announced such as Annie Mac, Birmingham breakthrough Hannah Wants, Riton & Kah-Lo, Bristolian duo My Nu Leng and American genius Diplo.

Another fan said that they were "raging" about the absence of Arctic Monkeys - who are making their comeback this year - from the line-up, while another tweeted the Reading and Leeds Twitter account and quipped that they had "misspelled" the Sheffield rock band's name.

United Kingdom rap and grime artists have a strong showing in this year's line-up, with J Hus, Skepta, Yungen, Ms Banks, AJ Tracey, Wretch 32, Fredo and Mist all booked to perform.

Following a secret opening performance on the Festival Republic stage previous year, Reading and Leeds favourite Wolf Alice are set to play.

If something heavier is a little more your thing, UnderØath, Sum 41, Papa Roach, Waterparks, Hollywood Undead, Beartooth and Creeper are all in the mix.

Speaking about this year's headliners, Festival Republic boss Melvin Benn said: "Reading and Leeds prides itself on being a music-first festival and this year's line-up already proves that".

It will be the first headline stint at the music event for Humble hitmaker Lamar, who first played at Reading and Leeds in 2015.
