have been announced as the first headliners for next year’s  Reading & Leeds Festival.

Taking place in August, the festival is known as one of the last major events in the UK’s music calendar, next year’s line-up is also set to include acts such as  The 1975, Slaves Ratboy, Hinds and The Courteneers.

In the midst of recording a new album as we speak, the headline set from the aforementioned RHCP is sure to be a mix of classics from albums such as Blood Sugar Sex Magick, Californiacation and more alongside new material from their forthcoming release.

A festival which prides itself on its diversity after becoming less of an alt-rock focused festival, the bill is also set to feature sets from grime and garage acts such as Boy Better Know and DJ EZ.

Tickets for both of the bill swapping festivals are available now via their respective websites.
