Reading and Leeds Announce Dave and Megan Thee Stallion will headline the 2022 Festival Line-Up.
Today, (8th December) Reading and Leeds announced Dave and Megan Thee Stallion will be amongst headliners at the 2022 instalment of the Festival. Other headliners include Bring Me The Horizon, Rage Against the Machine, Halsey and Arctic Monkeys, who are making a long-awaited comeback.
The festival, one of the most highly anticipated events on the live music calendar, has received praise for its more gender-inclusive line-up. In previous years, Reading and Leeds has failed to include a female headliner on the bill. Megan Thee Stallion and Halsey will be the first female headliners since 2014 and the first solo female headliners since 1995.
Also on the line-up will be Little Simz, Polo G, Glass Animals, Joy Crooks, Griff, Wolf Alice, Måneskin, and Bastille.
The festival will again operate two main stages to enable quicker turn-around times between sets and, consequently, more performances. However, representatives from Reading and Leeds have once again promised no clashes for the 2022 event.
Following the line-up announcement, Managing Director of Festival Republic Melvin Benn said, “With so many amazing acts set to play, Reading and Leeds is set to return as the ultimate festival weekend of the summer, defining the sounds of modern groundbreaking music.”
Reading and Leeds 2022 will take place from August 26th – 28th 2022. Tickets for the event will go on sale on the official festival website at 9am on Friday 10th December.
