Foals commented: “We’re absolutely buzzing to be headlining Reading & Leeds this year. It’s a dream come true. I used to watch Nirvana live at Reading ’92, on vhs, repeatedly while dying my hair blue & learning how to play guitar, badly. We’ve worked our way up on our own terms & to be given the chance to headline one of the world’s most iconic festivals is a huge achievement for us & hopefully a sign for all bands, that, if you stick to your guns & focus on what matters, you’ll get there & smash it. Onwards & upwards friends. Long live the guitar band”

They join previouly announced Red Hot Chili Peppers (Headliner: Festival Exclusive), The 1975, Courteeners, Eagles Of Death Metal (UK Festival Exclusive), Slaves
