Reading Festival 2016: More Acts Announced

At 7.30am on Thursday 21st April, avid fans of Reading and Leeds Festival were delighted to hear of yet more acts set for the August bank holiday weekend, as well as stage splits.

Some of the biggest news for fans was that among the many more acts announced, big names such as Good Charlotte, Tonight Alive and Frank Turner will be attending the festival.

Good Charlotte recently released a new single and it is anticipated they’ll be playing a large mix of old and new content, pleasing both old and new fans.

This year will also be Frank Turner’s 10th year performing at Reading and Leeds Festival, having performed across various different stages for the last decade. He broke the record for consecutive performances at Reading and Leeds last year with his 9th performance, and plans to continue his record further with a 10th appearance. Earlier this morning Frank Turner took to Twitter to tweet out “Hmm, should I play for the 10TH YEAR IN A ROW?” with this attachment of a video announcement on his YouTube channel.

The video shows a compilation of Turner’s performances across the last decade at Reading and Leeds Festival before finishing the video with a little skit announcing the 10th performance.

The new line-up poster also brought the news that Two Door Cinema Club, Jack U and The 1975 will be headlining the NME stage, alongside new acts such as Tonight Alive, Spring King, Sunset Sons and Black Foxxes.

More acts for the main stage were announced including Nothing But Thieves and their current tour support band Sundura Karma, Five Finger Death Punch, Slaves and Lower Than Atlantis.
