Liam Gallagher Confirmed For Leeds & Reading Festival

Liam Gallagher has been added to the line-up of Leeds & Reading Festival.

The former Oasis front man will perform at both Bramham Park in Leeds and Richfield Avenue in Reading, over the August bank holiday weekend.

Gallagher will be play the main stage before headliners Muse on the Friday at Leeds and Sunday at Reading.

In what is wildly regarded as a ‘UK festival exclusive’ Liam will no doubt debut tracks from his first solo album ‘As You Were’ which is set for release later in the year.

Fans can also expect the Manchester singer to perform plenty of Oasis songs after he recently bragged he could ‘sing any song bigger and better’ than brother Noel.

Liam took to Twitter earlier to confirm the news of his UK festival appearance.

Check out the tweet below:

Gallagher joins previously announced acts including Eminem and Kasabian at the three-day festival, which runs from August 25th to 27th 2017.

Over 90 acts have now been added to the festivals line up, including Ash, Sløtface, Pvris, Vince Staples, Goldie, Bugzy Malone, Declan McKenna and Mura Masa.

Ash front man Tim Wheeler and Sløtface have both expressed their excitement at appearing on the line up.

Ash front man Tim Wheeler said “We’re very proud to announce an historic 10th appearance for Ash at the Reading festival.”

“We first performed there in 1995 and our shows at the festival stand among our favourite shows that we’ve ever played, it’s always been a highlight of each year we’ve done it.”

With Sløtface adding “Just thinking of the fact that we’ll be on the same poster as Kasabian, Charli XCX, At The Drive In and Eminem is really exciting.”
