To say that Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ rise to stardom has been meteoric would be a complete understatement. The hip-hop duo comprised of rapper Macklemore and producer Ryan Lewis were this year nominated for seven Grammy Awards and walked away with an astounding four on the night, ‘Best New Artist’, ‘Best Rap Album’, ‘Best Rap Song’ and ‘Best Rap Performance’.
Their independently released album ‘The Heist’, which featured a vast array of guest stars including Schoolboy Q and Band of Horses’ Ben Bridwell, has been certified platinum in five countries and sold in excess of a million copies.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis comment on their appearance: "We have been all over the world this past year and are thrilled to be coming back to the UK to play the Reading & Leeds Festivals. It is a huge honour to be asked to perform at a festival with such a rich history."
