The dual location Reading & Leeds Festivals will return next year over the bank holiday weekend from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th August 2021, with two main outdoor stages and six headliners without any clashes - so you can see all six acts.

Headliners Stormzy, Liam Gallagher, Post Malone, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Disclosure, and Queens of the Stone Age will be joined by rock, indie, alternative, hip-hop, and dance artists including AJ Tracey, Doja Cat, Lewis Capaldi, Mabel, and Two Door Cinema Club, with more to be announced over the coming months.

Headlining on Main Stage East there's Stormzy (Reading: Friday / Leeds: Saturday), Liam Gallagher (Reading: Sunday, Leeds: Friday), and Post Malone (Reading: Saturday, Leeds: Sunday).

Headlining on Main Stage West there's Catfish & The Bottlemen (Reading: Friday, Leeds: Saturday), Disclosure (Reading: Saturday, Leeds: Sunday), and Queens of the Stone Age (Reading: Sunday, Leeds: Friday).

This is almost a return to the 1980s for Reading Festival, which back then had two main stages side by side with the audience switching between the stages for almost-constant live music - although until 1989* that was the only music stage (or two stages, depending how you viewed it).
