Organisers have confirmed more of the Reading & Leeds 2015 line-up, including the festivals' second headliner.

Mumford & Sons will headline the Main Stage at the two sites this August.

The British rock band last appeared at Reading & Leeds in 2010 when they performed a triumphant set to a packed NME/BBC Radio 1 Stage.

The band return to Reading & Leeds just four years later as festival headliners.

Festival boss Melvin Benn said: “I’m delighted to have secured Mumford & Sons for Main Stage headliners this summer and can’t wait to see them return to the festivals for their first UK performance in over two years.”

Also announced this week for the August Bank Holiday weekend event are Royal Blood as a summer UK festival exclusive and Bastille as an England and Wales festival exclusive.

As one of the biggest progressive-house producers in the world, deadmau5 promises to use incredible live production to give Reading & Leeds fans one of the biggest dance sets of the weekend.

Supergroup Rebel Sound – formed of Chase & Status, Rage, David Rodigan and Shy FX – will combine reggae and dancehall beats through to drum ‘n’ bass and jungle.

The second Reading & Leeds announcement also includes Catfish and The Bottlemen, BBC Sound of 2015 poll toppers Years & Years, and North London’s Wolf Alice.

Pretty Vicious, a youthful indie-punk four-piece hailing from Merthyr Tydfil in the Welsh Valleys, singer and multi-instrumentalist Jack Garratt and Hannah Wants will also appear across the weekend.

Monday’s additions join previously announced headliners Metallica, Jamie T, Pierce The Veil, Wilkinson (Live), Run The Jewels, Refused and Manchester Orchestra.

Weekend tickets cost £205 plus booking fees.
