Festival line-up update: Reading and Leeds, Bestival, Green Man, Isle Of Wight, and more

By | Published on Tuesday 4 February 2014


The Reading and Leeds twin festivals have announced a few new additions to their line-up, including new headliner Arctic Monkeys, who join the previously announced Blink 182. Also amongst the new names on the bill are The Courteeners, The 1975, You Me At Six, SBTRKT, Warpaint, and Pusha T.

Meanwhile, this year’s Desert Island Disco-themed Bestival will, as per festival Boss-tival Rob Da Bank’s latest line-up reveal, be headlined by Beck and Foals, as well as existing lead billings Outkast, and recent addees like Disclosure, Major Lazer, London Grammar, Sam Smith and Wild Beasts.

RSVP-ing to the beachy bash as one, Foals say: “We couldn’t be more excited and honoured to be part of Bestival this year; it’s the perfect end to our touring for ‘Holy Fire’. We promise a night of madness, mayhem and good times!”

A good time it surely will be. Almost as good, I dare say, as the festivities at this year’s Green Man, which will, its news centre stated this week, feature Beirut, Neutral Milk Hotel, First Aid Kit, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Daughter, Anna Calvi, Sharon Van Etten, Waxahatchee and Fat White Family.

What it won’t feature, though, is Kings Of Leon, who now I mention it have just been confirmed to join Red Hot Chili Peppers, Biffy Clyro and Calvin Harris at the top of 2014’s Isle Of Wight Festival listings.

Stay tuned for more on all that, plus some banging additional updates from British Summer Time, Forest Live, NASS, Other Voices, Parklife, Tramlines and Willowman.
