New rock stage for Reading/Leeds

The Transplants have been lined up to headline the new Radio 1/Lock Up Stage at this year's Reading/Leeds festivals, with Bad Religion, Hatebreed, and No Comply also on the bill.

The Lock-Up Stage follows a similar music policy to last year’s Concrete Jungle Arena, with Anti-flag, Rise Against, Eighteen Visions, Dwarves, Capdown, Million Dead, Emanuel, and The Explosion also on the bill.

It all unfolds at Reading on the Saturday and at Leeds on the Sunday. The Transplants headline at Leeds but are elevated to the main stage for Reading.

The Reading and Leeds festivals take place over three days, from 26-28 August, at Little John’s Farm, Reading, and Bramham Park, Leeds. 

Weekend tickets have now sold out but day passes are still available. For the full line-up, tickets and more info, click here for Reading and here for Leeds.
