Kasabian have been announced as the second headline act for a UK festival exclusive performance at this year's Reading and Leeds Festivals which happens annually over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Kasabian commented: "It's been five years, and as a band we have come a long way since then. We're looking forward to playing tunes from the new record and bringing the mosh pit to Reading & Leeds Festival!"

Melvin Benn commented: "I'm thrilled to be able to announce Kasabian as the second headliner for Reading and Leeds 2017. It's been five years since they played; I'm excited about what this memorable headline performance will bring. The Reading and Leeds line up is already shaping up to be one of the best yet, and I'm looking forward to revealing the third and final headliner soon."

Also newly announced are Two Door Cinema Club, Flume, Fatboy Slim, Wiley, Circa Waves, Jimmy Eat World (UK Festival Exclusive), The Amity Affliction (UK Festival Exclusive), and Rat Boy.

Two Door Cinema Club commented: "It's so good to be back at Reading and Leeds, it's always a highlight of our summer. Good to see so many guitar bands on the bill this year as well."

Talking about playing Reading & Leeds this year, Circa Waves said: "We are SO made up to be playing Reading and Leeds again. We are so ready for the festival and can't wait to tear the stage up!"

The new acts join the previously announced acts of first headliner Muse, plus Major Lazer (UK festival exclusive), Bastille, Tory Lanez, At the Drive-In, Architects (a UK festival exclusive), Glass Animals, Andy C, Danny Brown, Against The Current, and While She Sleeps.

Reading Festival takes place at Little Johns Farm, Richfield Avenue, Reading, Berkshire, and Leeds Festival takes place at Bramham Park, Leeds, West Yorkshire with both events happening over the weekend of Thursday 24th to Sunday 27th August 2017.
