MarkMeets is excited to reveal exclusive news about Reading & Leeds! We can confirm that the first line-up announcement for 2022 will come next week, most likely Wednesday.

Fans are convinced The Arctic Monkeys will headline!

The dual event will take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend (26-28), with R&L boss Melvin Benn previously prevealing that “three of next year’s six headliners are in place.

As speculation continues to grow, organisers have revealed today (December 3) that the first wave of names will be unveiled on Wednesday (December 8). It comes ahead of a general ticket sale the following Friday (December 10).
Before that, fans have a “final chance to purchase [the] last few remaining First Release tickets” ahead of a price increase. You can see the official update below.

On some of the acts, we’ve been told “Some of them have guitars” and said only one of them has topped the bill before.

Rumours of a possible return for Arctic Monkeys ramped up recently after the band confirmed a run of European festival dates alongside their own headline shows. Notably, AM are currently free between August 26 and September 1 – paving the way for a potential R&L slot.

When asked if Alex Turner and co. could feature on the line-up next year, Arctic Monkeys are a law unto themselves and when they decide next to play live is beyond me, if I’m honest.”

The group are primed to release a new album – the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ – in the new year, with drummer Matt Helders recently revealing that it was “pretty much” finished.

Benn also spoke about whether US acts such Queens Of The Stone Age and Machine Gun Kelly could return in 2022. (They were both booked for this year but pulled out due to COVID travel restrictions).

“What we want to do is book a relevant festival every year, and not just rebook the acts who have cancelled.”

Reading & Leeds 2021 was headlined by Liam Gallagher, Post Malone, Stormzy, Disclosure, Biffy Clyro and Catfish + The Bottlemen. Elsewhere, there were performances from the likes of Wolf Alice, Gerry Cinnamon, Sigrid and Baebadoobee.
