The time has come, we are finally able to tell you the final headliner for Reading festival 2017. Revaluate your spending habits, book the weekend off work and get a ticket to the festival this year because it looks like it’s going to be amazing.
The final headliner for this year’s Reading and Leeds festival is EMINEM! The Michigan born rapper will be joining both Kasabian and Muse to complete the list of headliners for this year’s festival. We all love his classics and you’ll be able to see him perform them in the flesh. Whether it is ‘Lose Yourself’, ‘Without Me’ or ‘Stan’, one of the biggest name in the Rap world with a total of 15 Grammy’s, it is obvious how he has earned his icon status and will be amazing to see live.
Melvin Benn, the man in charge of it all, expressed his excitement over the final headliner: ‘Eminem returning to Reading and Leeds is beyond exciting. His 2013 headline performance was incredible and I can’t wait to have him back.’
As if Eminem wasn’t enough, over 70 more acts have been added to this already incredible line up. One of the most anticipated returns to the music world, the three sisters from LA HAIM are returning to Reading. Their 2013 album Days Are Gone won the 2014 NME Best International Band and their new album set for 2017. Their performances on stage is electrifying and incredibly energetic. If you haven’t heard of them, you need to listen to their debut song ‘Forever‘. Like now.
Surrey band and Reading veterans YOU ME AT SIX are returning again for their six year at the festival. With their new album Night People released this year, this band will produce a guarantee amazing performance. You Me At Six’s new singles ‘Take on the World’ and ‘Give’ show that the boys are back again making music they’re good at. They’re a must see to see, and they’re set to perform on the Friday in Reading.
Other acts have also been announced like BLOSSOMS, who have had one of the most successful debuts that I have ever witnessed. Their self-titled debut album stormed to number one and sell out tours show how popular this Stockport band has become and will continue to climb. MIGOS, hip hop superstars from Lawrenceville, Georgia, have also been released as performers for the festival. They have recently released a single with Calvin Harris and Frank Ocean and have become ‘global symbols of a new wave of modern rap following the release of their latest album C U L T U R E’.
LETHAL BIZZLE has also made a return to Reading festival for another year. This will be his 6th performance at the festival, the first being in 2006. After performing at RUSU’s Summer Ball last year, EVERYTHING EVERYTHING, will be making an appearance at Reading again to provide an electric performance. SUNDARA KARAMA will also be making an appearance at their hometown festival.
After releasing their new album Who You Selling For, THE PRETTY RECKLESS will be back again laced with their heavy blues-laden music and the unmistakable voice of Taylor Momsen. MOOSE BLOOD and MALLORY KNOX will also be joining the line-up showing why Reading and Leeds are known as a rock based festival.
