Biffy Clyro, Fall Out Boy for Reading and Leeds festivals 2016

Biffy Clyro and Fall Out Boy named co-headliners for 2016’s Reading and Leeds festivals, with 59 more acts also added

Biffy Clyro and Fall Out Boy have been named co-headliners for this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals – leading a list of 61 additions to the 2016 bill.

Organiser Melvin Benn says the total of five headline acts across three days, plus a 24 European exclusive performances, mean a UK festival first will be scored during the August bank holiday weekend.

Biffy Clyro and Fall Out Boy join the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foals and Disclosure as bill-toppers. Also added today are Lower Than Atlantis, Skindred, Five Finger Death Punch, The King Blues, Kevelertak, Modern Baseball and many others.

Asking Alexandria, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes were among bands named over the weekend.

Benn says: “We’re always looking to give Reading and Leeds fans something new, and this year isn’t going to disappoint. Biffy Clyro and Fall Out Boy are going to be incredible.”

Skindred frontman Benji Webbe adds: “You’ll see a lot of bands at Reading and Leeds – but there's nothing that will come close to the energy that Skindred will deliver. A performance not to be missed. We come in peace but we will leave you in pieces.”

Tickets are on sale now via the Reading and Leeds websites.
