American heavy metal superstars Metallica band are the first main stage headliners announced to play Leeds and Reading Festivals 2015.
Returning to the headline for the fourth time, in 2015. They have had a affluent history at the festivals, dating back 18 years ago! With a career over three decades and sold over 110 million records, no wonder why they are one of the biggest and best live acts in the world.
They are joined on the first line-up announcement by Swedish hardcore band Refused, rappers Run the Jewels and American rock band Manchester Orchestra. Californian post-hardcore band Pierce the Veil will be making their debut at the festival.
Fresh from their highly anticipated fourth studio album, Californian post-hardcore favorites Pierce The Veil will be making their long-awaited Reading and Leeds debut in 2015. With his set this year proving to be one of the defining moments on the BBC Radio 1 Dance Stage, drum ‘n’ bass maestro Wilkinson is no stranger to Reading & Leeds.
The Swedish punk band’s album ‘The Shape Of Punk To Come’ fused post-punk, techno and jazz to create an entirely original sound. Since reforming for shows in 2012, the band have returned bigger than ever with a live set that shows the true capacity of their musical legacy. With two critically acclaimed albums released in the last two years, Run The Jewels are arguably the hottest hip-hop act on the planet. Making their Reading & Leeds debut next year, they mean business.
