Sunday in Reading (Friday in Leeds) features Courteeners, Skepta, The Wombats, J Hus and Diplo alongside headliner Kings of Leon.

Fans of Reading & Leeds Festivals have been in uproar this morning, after the organisers released their long-awaited 2018 line-up.

Reading & Leeds Festival will take place from 24-26 August at Richfield Avenue in Reading and Bramham Park in Leeds.

2018 can arguably be seen as the most diverse line-up ever, with artists like Post Malone headlining alongside Fall Out Boy.

The Followills last headlined the festivals back in 2009. However, more acts will be added in the coming months.

Among the smaller banks, Andhra Bank reported a Rs 532- crore loss and Bank of Maharashtra was in the red by Rs 596 crore. The bank had reported a net loss of Rs554.44 crore in the same quarter a year ago.

Kendrick Lamar, Kings of Leon, Fall Out Boy, and Panic! at the Disco will headline the Reading and Leeds Festivals. Brighton four-piece The Magic Gang also join the bill in addition to Bedford-born and critically celebrated singer-songwriter Tom Grennan takes to the stage beside them after an incredible first year.

However, the upset over the line-up was predictable for some, with one music fan saying: "The annual meltdown about Reading and Leeds' line up gets funnier every year".

"It is an honour to be able to headline a festival that we grew up playing and dreaming of that top spot". Florida rock outfit UnderØath will appear this year alongside the likes of noughties favourites Sum 41 and none other than California legends Papa Roach, as well as Waterparks, Hollywood Undead and Ohio-based hardcore band Beartooth.

Kendrick Lamar also returns to Reading & Leeds, but makes his debut with the coveted headline slot off the back of his acclaimed DAMN.

"Reading and Leeds prides itself on being a music-first festival and this year's line-up already proves that", said Festival Republic boss Melvin Benn.
