Kasabian will join Muse as headliners of the Reading and Leeds Festivals this year. The massive UK indie band lead the second wave of announcements for the festivals, which also includes Jimmy Eat World, Circa Waves and Two Door Cinema Club.
A UK exclusive, the announcement that Kasabian will headline one of the biggest dates in the British rock calendar is sure to be divisive especially given that their peers in Muse have secured the other top spot. Regardless, we'll have to wait until the August bank holiday to see how things actually pan out for these stalwart bands.
Also announced today were Melvin Benn, Flume, Fatboy Slim and Wiley.
