Festival season is midway through now and those of you lucky enough to have Reading or Leeds tickets, you’re in for a treat this year! The line-up is absolutely incredible, but if you are struggling with who you should see, let us help you out!

WHO TO SEE AT READING & LEEDS FESTIVAL 2017

From big headliners, to a couple of lesser known bands, here’s 5 acts you should definitely check out and raise a warm pint to…

KASABIAN

With each new album, Kasabian are getting better and better, you’d be a fool to miss out on this headliner. Expect them to play their huge hits, such as Club Foot, Shoot The Runner and newer tracks from their latest album For Crying Out Loud. Tom and Serg are bound to make it a memorable night.

OH WONDER

London-based alt-pop duo, consisting of Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West are a must-see at Reading and Leeds this year. Since releasing their DIY debut album, they have seen international success with their super catchy singles. Having just released their second studio album Ultralife, the band are now embarking on a worldwide tour, making a pitstop at the festivals for some bank holiday fun.

MUSE

With Muse taking the Reading/Leeds headline slot, you’re not going to be disappointed. Their back catalogue spans over 20 years of hits, including: Time Is Running Out, Plug In Baby, Starlight and their new single Dig Down. Expect a ruddy good light show too, and for those of you opting to not be squashed at the barrier up front, give yourself enough space for a bit of a head bang and watch out for a drone or two.

HAIM

The sisters are back with their brand new album Something To Tell You and they’re sounding better than ever. We were lucky enough to catch their performance at Glastonbury 2017 and were blown away by their talent. If there’s one band that’ll get you dancing like a crazy person for the duration of their set, it’s Este, Alana and Danielle.

JOE LYCETT

For something a bit different, why not head along to the Alternative Stage and check out some comedians this year. The comedy line-up is looking marvellous, from Bill Bailey to Simon Amstell to Seann Walsh. But our personal recommendation is the hilarious Joe Lycett, who we’re sure will have you in stitches.
