At the beginning of the year, Reading and Leeds announced Foals and Disclosure would headline the 2016 edition of the iconic English fest, taking place August 26 - 28. We also learned of a slew of other performers, including Red Hot Chili Peppers, the 1975, Eagles Of Death Metal, Twenty One Pilots, Imagine Dragons, Two Door Cinema Club, Fetty Wap, Crystal Castles, and many, many more.
Biffy Clyro shared the following statement:
“We're baaaaack!! We are honoured to be asked to close Reading and Leeds this summer. We had one of the best nights of our lives last time and we're going to do all we can to make it even bigger and better in 2016. You ain't seen nothing yet motherfuckers!!”
Fall Out Boy added:
"It’s pretty surreal to hear we are going to be co-headlining Reading and Leeds. R&L was our first real festival experience outside of the U.S. and since the start we have buckled in and had an insane and memorable experience every time we have played. This is it, the big one for us and we are excited to be a part of it."
