Plain White T's and Jeffrey Lewis among new names for Reading and Leeds festivals
More names have been scattered across the various stages of this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals.
Most prominent among them will be the unlikeable Plain White T's who along with NYC act Mindless Self Indulgence join the Main Stage bill on the Sunday at Reading and the Friday at Leeds. Flies at the ready, gents. Who knows? Maybe the fear will be enough. Maybe they'll piss themselves.
Elsewhere though there are plenty of things that really don’t deserve to be soaked in beery urine – twin pillars of the US underground Jeffrey Lewis and Henry Rollins will be on the Alternative Stage; the former doing Reading on Friday, Leeds on Sunday and the latter in Reading on Sunday, Leeds on the Saturday.
Stolen Recordings’ Pete and the Pirates have been added to the Radio 1/NME Stage (Reading Friday, Leeds Saturday) and Tiger Army, The Briggs and Blackhole all make for the Lock-Up Stage.
The Reading and Leeds festivals take place from the 22nd ‘til the 24th of August. Tickets have already sold out.
