Reading announced Eminem will be headlining Saturday at Reading and Leeds Festival on Friday. And let’s be honest, with nu-metal rockers Korn, Muse, Major Laser, and Kasabian already in the mix, the twin festivals were already looking like a hot mix.
We’re excited, and we’re going. End of. We waited the 2o minutes on Friday lunch time that it took for our phone screens to final refresh enough times to secure tickets.
Reading and Leeds have well and truly set the standard for this year. We’re pretty sure no UK festival to date has secured such impressive headliners, and on the day that single day tickets go one sale too. It’s not hard to do the math and figure out we’re on a winner. It’s upwards of £150 to see Eminem alone, combined with the £120 our editor paid to see Korn and Limp Bizkuit at Wembley in December. Without a doubt Reading is the ticket to have, and is going to the hottest place to be, for the best price, this August.
