Reading and Leeds headliners ‘staggeringly good’

Melvin Benn, festival promoter for Reading and Leeds Festival, has stated all three headline acts are "staggeringly good" and will not be headlining any other festivals.

The Managing Director of Festival Republic also told BBC Newsbeat that there would be a small increase in ticket prices and they will be going on general sale in March.

Last year Guns n' Roses, Arcade Fire and Blink 182 headlined Reading Festival and Leeds Festival. Funeral Party are the first act to confirm themselves for both festivals, to see the updated rumours list for Reading Festival 2011 and Leeds Festival 2011 check out our rumours page.
