Reading and Leeds Festival 2024 are due out soon
Over the weekend, from Friday, August 25, to Sunday, August 27, 2023, the annual Reading and Leeds Festival took place once again. The incredible event saw the likes of The Killers, Sam Fender and The 1975 hit headline spots throughout the weekend. Some smaller bands were also involved in the massive event, including Hot Milk, Sleep Token and Chase Atlantic.
Billie Eilish brought the weekend to a close with an incredible headline setlist, where she played some of her biggest and best songs, including Happier Than Ever, Bad Guy and Your Power. She did not, however, play her massive Oscar-winning James Bond track, No Time To Die, which many fans were expecting throughout the night.
Reading and Leeds Festival 2024 has not yet been confirmed, but it is expected to take place once again next year, marking its 68th year of showstopping music (not including 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic).
Here’s everything we know about Reading Festival 2024 and Leeds Festival 2024 right now, and what we’re expecting:
Leeds Festival 2023
Reading and Leeds Festival 2024 line-up
At the time of writing, the official line-up for Reading and Leeds Festival 2024 has not yet been announced.
Last year saw some massive acts announced for the headline slots across the weekend, including Sam Fender, The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Foals – and the crowning glory of the weekend: Billie Eilish.
The finalised line-up was confirmed around March 2023, just months before the event actually kicked off, so fans should not expect to see a full list of who’s playing until then.
With that said, the first acts were announced on December 9, 2022 – nine months before the events. So fans can (hopefully) expect to star hearing who’ll be hitting the stage from December 2023.
Although there is currently no word on who’ll be playing the festivals, there are already a number of rumours about who may be lined up to hit the stage.
The biggest rumour, at the moment, is that Taylor Swift could be filling the headline slot at Reading and Leeds Festival 2024. This would not be a massive surprise considering, at the time, she would be in the UK on her Eras Tour. Her final show in the UK and Europe kicks off on August 17, 2024, just a week before Reading and Leeds will presumably kick off.
This article will be updated as soon as the acts are announced.

The exact dates for Reading and Leeds Festival 2024 have not yet been announced.
However, the weekender usually takes place across the August bank holiday weekend in the UK – just as it did this year.
2024’s August bank holiday in the UK is on Monday, August 26.
As a result, Readings and Leeds Festival 2024 are both expected to begin from Friday, August 23, 2024, and run until Sunday, August 25, 2024.
However, these dates cannot be 100 percent confirmed until the festival bosses officially announce their dates.
