Having already announced Metallica as the first headliner for this year's event, Reading & Leeds Festivals have now unveiled their second headliner for the forthcoming duel-festivals.
Mumford & Sons, who had previously been on hiatus since the end of 2013, will return to top this year's billing, having last played the festivals back in 2011.
Festival organiser Melvin Benn said, “I’m delighted to have secured Mumford & Sons for Main Stage headliners this summer and can’t wait to see them return to the Festivals for their first UK performance in over two years. With today’s announcement of a further eight great acts joining the bill, the Reading & Leeds line-up is already shaping up to be one of the best ever and I’m looking forward to revealing the third headliner and even more great artists soon.”
As well as Marcus Mumford and the lads, a flurry of other artists have also been announced including Royal Blood, Bastille, deadmau5, Catfish & The Bottlemen, Years & Years, Wolf Alice, Pretty Vicious, Jack Garratt, Hannah Wants and Rebel Sound, the supergroup formed by Chase & Status, Rage, David Rodigan and Shy FX.
