Eminem has been confirmed as the third and final headliner for Reading and Leeds Festival 2017.
The veteran Detroit rapper joins the already confirmed Kasabian and Muse to complete the top layer of this year’s Reading and Leeds. He last headlined the festival back in 2013, featuring a host of special guests.
“Eminem returning to Reading and Leeds is beyond exciting,” says festival organiser Melvin Benn. “His 2013 headline performance was incredible and I can’t want to have him back. In addition to our third and final headliner (joining Kasabian and Muse) we’ve announced over 70 additional acts to this year’s line up – it’s looking stronger than ever.”
His addition is part of a huge number of artists confirmed for the bill, including Migos, HAIM, You Me At Six, Halsey, Blossoms, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Billy Talent, and a whole lot more.
