Leeds Fest 2017 announces first acts

Leeds Fest. Synonymous with good times and messiness. But no matter your own experience of the festival, it’s undeniable that Leeds holds its own in the sea of festival offerings that each summer has to offer. The line-up for 2017 is sure not to disappoint on this count.

The first headliner has been announced. It’s official: Reading & Leeds Festival has announced Muse as the first headliners for next year’s festival, taking place 25-27 August 2017.

Stadium rock royalty, Muse are one of the most influential and revered live bands of modern times. Led by the commanding presence of frontman Matt Bellamy, the trio have taken to the biggest stages around the world with their interstellar anthems for over 22 years, and their return to Reading & Leeds promises to be yet another landmark moment in their storied career. The band commented: “We’re very excited to be playing Reading and Leeds again. More news about our plans for 2017 coming in the new year.”

Among the clutch of other bands announced are Major Lazer, Bastille, Architects, Tory Lanez, At The Drive-In, Glass Animals, Against The Current, Andy C, Danny Brown and While She Sleeps.


With hundreds of acts set to play across eight stages, Reading & Leeds is once again the unmissable festival weekend of the summer – defining and celebrating the who’s who of modern ground breaking music.
