Alt-J And Deftones To Perform At 2013 Reading And Leeds Festivals
NME reports that the first names have been announced for the Reading and Leeds festivals in 2013. Alt-J will headline the NME/Radio 1 tent.
They will be joined by Deftones, Sub Focus and Boy Better Know. Deftones will perform their new album Yo Noi Kan on the main stage while Sub Focus will headline the BBC Radio 1 Dance Stage. Boy Better Know will headline the new BBC Radio 1 Xtra Stage.
Tickets go on sale at 9 AM tomorrow morning. For a limited time until December 31, tickets will be sold at 2012 prices. Organizers are introducing an $80 deposit for 2013, meaning fans can guarantee a spot at the event and pay the full amount before March 31, 2013. The festival will have three new stages.
Festival organizer Melvin Benn said: “There will quite a bit more dance music, quite a bit more other bits and pieces.“
This past year’s festival included headlining acts The Cure, Foo Fighters and Kasabian, as well as performances from The Vaccines, Enter Shikari, At The Drive-In, Bombay Bicycle Club, You Me At Six and All Time Low.
