The band tweeted just after 4pm today (March 12) announcing their appearance at the twin festival sites over the bank holiday weekend in August.

At The Drive-In had long been rumoured for the weekend bash and featured in our second Reading and Leeds rumours round-up article.

Kaiser Chiefs were named this morning by a BBC radio DJ for Leeds Festival.

No acts will be confirmed until 7:15 this evening, but internet rumours last week suggested The Cure would be one of the headliners this year, while Foo Fighters possibly dropped a hint over their rumoured headline spot by posting a recording of their debut Reading show from 1995 on their website at the weekend.

Reading Festival 2012 takes place in Richfield Avenue, Reading on 24-26 August.

Leeds Festival 2012 take place in Bramham Park, Wetherby, Leeds from 24-26 August.

Reading 2012 tickets and Leeds 2012 tickets are priced as follows:

Weekend camping £205.50 (£197.50 + £8 booking fee)
Day tickets £92 (£85 + £7 booking fee)
£15 early entry

Stay tuned to Virtual Festivals on Twitter and Facebook for the official Reading & Leeds 2012 line-up announcement and ticket links tonight (Monday 12 March) at 7:15pm.
