Joining a packed weekend of international heavyweights, Reading & Leeds are
delighted to announce their final UK Festival Exclusive co-headliners of
2016; Biffy Clyro and Fall Out Boy. Unstoppable forces in alternative rock
on both sides of the Atlantic, both will take to the stage to co-headline
an emphatic evening of heavy riffs and melodies.

The phenomenal Biffy Clyro stand as true Reading & Leeds originals, rising
through the ranks, their full-throttle rock has propelled them to the top
of festival bills around the world. With a new album in the works, and a
nation of fans eagerly awaiting their next step, Biffy Clyro are destined
to bring their explosive headline credentials for a truly monumental
performance at the top of the bill.

Biffy Clyro commented:
“We’re baaaaack!! We are honoured to be asked to close Reading and Leeds
this summer. We had one of the best nights of our lives last time and we’re
going to do all we can to make it even bigger and better in 2016. You ain’t
seen nothing yet motherfuckers!!”

Catalysts for an entire generation, alt rock kingpins Fall Out Boy have
sound tracked the teenage dreams of fans around the globe. Their catalogue
of unmistakable anthems laid the blueprint for a genre of their own,
standing the band as one of the most influential acts of the 21st century.
Their 2013 return to Reading & Leeds triggered one of the biggest crowds in
festival history, so expect euphoria, nostalgia and pandemonium as Fall Out
Boy headline Reading & Leeds 2016.

Speaking about their massive co-headlining spot, Fall Out Boy said:
“It’s pretty surreal to hear we are going to be co-headlining Reading and
Leeds. R&L was our first real festival experience outside of the U.S. and
since the start we have buckled in and had an insane and memorable
experience every time we have played. This is it, the big one for us and we
are excited to be a part of it.”

On top of these new sensational headliners, a raft of new names have been
confirmed to appear across the bank holiday weekend. Unmissable and unmistakable,
Reading & Leeds Festivals 2016 stands as the lineup of the summer.
