Reading Festival – First headliner announced: Metallica


Metallica are the first headliner to be announced for next year’s Reading and Leeds festival.

It will be the fourth time that the legendary metal group have performed at the festival, the last time being back in 2008. Speaking about their return, drummer Lars Ulrich said: “We are obviously beyond thrilled to be returning to headline the magnificent and mighty double shot at Reading & Leeds for the fourth time. We are practically the house band. Bring it!”

The two massive three-day concerts run in tandem and draw more than 150,000 music lovers—many of whom will camp all weekend—from around the world.

Festival organiser Melvin Benn added: “I’m excited to be able to announce Metallica as the first headliner for Reading and Leeds 2015. Their amazing live show promises to be a favourite with rock, metal and genuine music fans at the UK’s most important music festival, perfectly topping a bill of brilliant acts from across the genres.”

I can’t wait for the next Reading Festival next!
