Festival line-up update – 11 Dec 2012

Artist News Festival Line-Up Update Gigs & Festivals

Reading & Leeds Festivals

Following the announcement last month of a handful of bands already confirmed for the line-up of next year’s Reading and Leeds festivals, organisers have now announced the first headliner. And it’s that Eminem chap, who by next August should have released his eighth studio album.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in festival line-up news, Essex-based reggae fete One Love has added far in excess of one new artist; Dutch rock revel Pinkpop has unveiled Queens Of The Stone Age, The Script and Triggerfinger, all of whom will be playing in advance of headliners Green Day on the festival’s Sunday itinerary; and Standon Calling hails American hip hop all-stars De La Soul as its very first live confirmation.
