As promised, Reading & Leeds have just made their huge first line-up announcement for 2022, with all six headliners plus plenty of other artists confirmed for the bill!

At long last the returning Rage Against The Machine will finally get their chance to play next year after the 2020 edition was cancelled. Joining them atop the bill – and fresh from a huge UK arena tour in September – are Bring Me The Horizon, who will be making the deserved step up to headliners after years working their way up, and Halsey, who has had an incredible year with the release of If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power.

"To be headlining Reading & Leeds was never even a dream of mine as it’s something I could never imagine happening," say BMTH. "I just never saw our band as a festival headline act. But now it’s happening I promise you we are going to put on the best show of our lives for you lot."

Also headlining are Arctic Monkeys, Dave and Megan Thee Stallion, while elsewhere the likes of Enter Shikari, Run The Jewels, Måneskin, jxdn and FEVER 333 have all been announced.

"With so many amazing acts set to play, Reading & Leeds is set to return as the ultimate festival weekend of the summer: defining the sounds of modern ground breaking music," says Melvin Benn, Managing Director of Festival Republic. "I cannot wait!"

Reading & Leeds 2022 takes place on August 26 – 28.
