Hardened festival fans’ hearts have been sent all aflutter, with more exciting names added to the Leeds and Reading line up.

The main stage promises to be an extravaganza of huge bands. Including co-headliners legendary Queens of the Stone Age, and rhythmic rockers Paramore storming the stage on Friday in Reading and Saturday in Leeds for their only UK performance of the year.

Pop punk heroes Blink 182 will be bringing back the nostalgia on Sunday in Leeds for their only UK performance, which is definitely not to be missed.

Other bands taking to the main stage include the charismatic Jake Bugg, multi award winning duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and Grammy award winning Vampire Weekend.

There has also been an exciting confirmation that US rockers A Day to Remember will be taking to the main stage on Sunday which will definitely be a highlight for all pop punk fans.

It is not just the names on the main stage that have left fan girls squealing at their computer screens.

Across the weekend, on the NME stage, you will find yourself swaying and dancing along to the likes of Disclosure and the extremely talented Bombay Bicycle Club.

The 1975, who released their three CD packed album last year and saw an instant soar to fame will also be taking to the NME stage to play some of their undeniably catchy hits including ‘Chocolate’ and ‘Settle Down’.

The Radio 1 stage always promises a great line up of acts that leave you voiceless and sore. This year you can look forward to the incredible drum & bass of Pendulum and the return of festival favourites, The Hives.

With all of these great acts confirmed and so many more, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be pulling out your debit cards and getting your tickets ordered, Leeds/Reading 2014 is not one to be missed.

With many more acts to be announced in the coming weeks across these stages, as well as the Festival Republic Stage, Lock Up Stage, The Pit, BBC Introducing Stage and the Alternative Stage, this year promises to be one of the best yet for the UK’s best Festivals!
