WITH less than a fortnight to go until the Reading and Leeds Festival 2013, the latest stage line-ups have been anounced.

The annual rock event takes place over the August 23-25 Bank Holiday weekend and will feature UK festival exclusive headline performances from American pop-punk rockers Green Day, rapper Eminem and Scottish trio Biffy Clyro, who topped the bill at Knebworth Sonisphere in 2011.

As well as the main stage headliners, Reading and Leeds will feature more than 200 artists, with UK festival exclusive performances from System of A Down, Fall Out Boy, Skrillex, Deftones, City and Colour and more.

The likes of Nine Inch Nails, Phoenix, Azealia Banks, Knife Party, Baauer, Funeral For A Friend, Jake Bugg and Alt-J will also be performing over the weekend.

Other exciting names confirmed include Devlin and Wretch 32 on the all-new BBC Radio 1Xtra Stage, comedy from Judah Friedlander World Champion and Russell Kane, plus Alkaline Trio and Shikari Sound System – the electronic alter-ego of St Albans quartet Enter Shikari – playing on the Lock Up and the new Rock Stage respectively.

Fresh from show-stopping performances at Standon Calling 2013 in the Hertfordshire countryside last weekend, album chart-toppers Bastille and electronic duo AlunaGeorge will grace the Reading and Leeds stages.

Folk-punk troubadour Frank Turner will also play the main stage at Reading the day after a warm-up gig at The Forum Hertfordshire in Hatfield, while Feed The Rhino, Sonic Boom Six, Merchandise and Rat Attack are due to play shows at The Horn, in St Albans, in the run-up to the festival weekend.

The festival line-up also includes University of Hertfordshire regular and dubstep heavyweight Flux Pavilion on the Dance Stage. Hertfordshire pop princess Charli XCX will also appear on the Dance Stage.

Watford hardcore punks Gallows will return to Reading and Leeds for the seventh consecutive year, while ferocious English/American rock band Pure Love, featuring former Gallows frontman Frank Carter and ex-The Hope Conspiracy guitarist Jim Carroll, will play the Festival Republic Stage.

Reading Festival weekend tickets have sold out. Friday day tickets, Saturday day tickets and all early entry tickets for Reading have also gone.

A number of tickets are still available for Leeds. Tickets are strictly limited to a maximum of four per person/address/payment card for those booking by telephone or online and two per person/address/payment card for personal callers to walk in stores.
