EXCLUSIVE: Having already revealed two of the three headliners for this year's Reading and Leeds Festivals, we can now further wet your appetites with another two bands set to feature high up the bill.

Tool and Editors will play at this year's Reading and Leeds Festivals, according to sources close to both bands.

Tool are believed to be part of the heavier rock day, which usually happens on Friday at Leeds and Sunday at Reading, possibly second to the headliner whose identity still remains a mystery.

Last week Virtual Festivals revealed that Franz Ferdinand and Muse have been booked as the other two main stage headliners. Read here.

Editors have apparently been booked to headline one night on the second stage.

We previously revealed that Arctic Monkeys had been booked as another of the second stage headliners. However with album sales for their debut breaking all known records last week, organisers may be forced into a rethink due to potential overcrowding in the limited capacity tent.

Other bands rumoured to be playing include Kaiser Chiefs (performing before Franz Ferdinand), Alice Cooper, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Secret Machines, Hard Fi, Dirty Pretty Things, Boy Kill Boy, The Flaming Lips, Wolfmother and Forward Russia!

All the above revelations are based on rumour and inside tip-offs and nothing is yet confirmed. The first official lineup announcement is expected by Mean Fiddler in March.

Reading and Leeds Festivals take place from 25-27 August at Little Johns Farm, Reading, and Bramham Park, Leeds. Click on the links below for more information.
