Reading & Leeds Lineup 2011

If you’re a Muse or My Chemical Romance fan, I feel sorta bad for you, but today’s your lucky day: The bands are headlining this summer’s Reading & Leeds Festivals. The (not so) resurgent Strokes and Pulp are playing co-headline slots. The bills also include the National, Odd Future, UK sensations the Vaccines, Crystal Castles, Pete Doherty, Jane’s Addiction, Death From Above 1979 (a band worth rioting over?), Interpol, etc. Check out the lineup to date below (or via the above poster).

  1. I wish Stereogum would report more on bands like My Chemical Romance and Taking Back Sunday. :)

  2. Only one band per day on the Festival Republic Stage? That must be the loneliest stage in the entire world. Or, they are giving those bands a nice 8 hour set to finally try out the Jazz Odd-Eye-See they’ve been dreaming of.
