Reading and leeds 2015 line up

So what do we reckon then? The first of the infamous Reading and Leeds festival posters has been revealed, and as ever it's likely to split opinion. 

Having started as a purely alternative rock festival, over the past few years the genre of artists attending has started to expand rapidly. The dance stage is no longer confined to a one day appearance, electronica is a regular guest in the NME/ Radio 1 tent and grime music is making itself feel at home over in the 1extra tent. 

I'm of the opinion that this is a good thing! Having the same artists appear over and over again can get a bit boring...and having said that looking at the lineup there are more than a few familiar faces on the poster. 

Nevertheless! Here are a few of the acts that caught my eye on the lineup so far...

- Panic! at the Disco
- Limp Bizkit
- Knife Party
- Ash
- Manchester Orchestra

- Metallica
- Bring me the Horizon
- Royal Blood
- Marmozets
- Slaves
- Porter Robinson

- The Libertines
- Kendrick Lamar
- Refused
- Deadmau5
- Tyler the Creator
- Jamie T
