Lethal Bizzle to play Reading and Leeds?

Lethal Bizzle is eyeing up a return to this year's Reading and Leeds Festivals, Virtual Festivals can exclusively reveal.

The British rapper is said to have both events in his sight, after becoming part of the furniture in recent years. Bizzle, real name Maxwell Ansah, has played the festivals every year since 2006.

A source close to the star told us: "[Bizzle] won't be playing Download again, not after the bad reception he got from the crowd last year.

"Instead he's in talks with Reading organisers to play there again. The response he gets at Reading just gets better and better."

Last year Lethal Bizzle claimed that he was racially abused at Download Festival.

Other names rumoured for Reading and Leeds are Radiohead, Kings Of Leon and Arctic Monkeys.

Both festivals will run from 28-30 August and they will share the same line-up.

Tickets are not on sale yet for either event.
