Reading and Leeds to announce bands on 21 March

Tickets for Reading and Leeds Festivals 2011, which take place from 26-28 August 2011, are set to go on sale at 7pm on Monday 21 March.

The line-up for the festival, which last year featured headline slots from Guns n’ Roses, Arcade Fire and Blink 182, is due to be revealed at the same time.

The event takes place simultaneously at Little John’s Farm in Reading and Bramham Park in Leeds, attracting some of the most famous names in the industry.

As reported by Virtual Festivals, Melvin Benn, promoter for Reading and Leeds, has stated all three headline acts are “staggeringly good” and will not be headlining any other festivals.

Rumoured acts include Muse, The Strokes, My Chemical Romance, recently-reformed Pulp and The Streets, who are currently on their farewell tour.
