This stage will be curated by Dan P Carter. Host of the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, he was born and raised in Reading and is a long-time fan and supporter of the Festivals. Dan is a natural choice to curate this stage, having been to Reading & Leeds countless times, headlining what was the Concrete Jungle in 2004 with A, and playing the Lock Up Stage with Hexes in 2008.

Dan comments: “To be curating a stage at Reading & Leeds is so awesome. As someone that was born in Reading, and have been going to the festival since I was a kid, I thought playing the festival was a good as it could get. Turns out I was wrong! I'm really looking forward to putting together a bill of bands that I think are ace and are going to make for a heaving packed tent on each day. We started with Of Mice & Men and went from there. Stoked!”
