Reading and Leeds music festivals have been given the green light to go ahead this summer.

This comes after the government’s announcement on February 22, where Boris Johnson outlined the roadmap to exit lockdown.

Taking to Twitter to make the announcement, the festival’s official page tweeted: “Reading and Leeds 2021.

“Following the government’s recent announcement, we can’t wait to get back to the fields this summer. LET’S GO.”

If that wasn’t exciting enough, the headline acts have already been confirmed for the festivals.

Stormzy and Liam Gallagher are set to headline both events, with other artists such as Post Malone, Lewis Capaldi and Disclosure, also expected to perform.

Reading and Leeds fest is set to take place at the end of summer, between 27-29 August.

Fans took to Twitter to share their excitement, with one writing: “YAAAASSSSS! Need this [sic].”
