2021 Headliners Announced Across Two Main Stages

We know you were all gutted that Reading didn’t go ahead this year, so we decided to take things up a few gears for 2021. That’s right we’ve doubled things up and given you not 1, but 2 main stages and 6 headliners…


“Wicked but what about the clashes?!” we hear you ask…

Well good news is there won’t be any.

Yeah that’s right, 2 main stages, 6 headliners and no clashes between the headliners. We repeat NO CLASHES!

We are proud to present to you Main Stage East and Main Stage West.

Not only that we’ve got a plenty of other quality names from across the musical spectrum on this first announcement for #RandL21. Plus we’ll be dropping a whole load of fire over the coming months to add to the party. Are you ready?!


Could be Glasto, could be Reading. Stormzy will bring you some serious heat at #RandL20. He’s come a long way from playing at 5pm on the 1Xtra Stage, and is constantly pushing the boundaries for UK music on a global scale. We’re excited to welcome Big Michael!


Catfish And The Bottlemen are practically untouchable in the world of Indie rock right now! With fans from Manchester to Melbourne and after a 5 year absence from the festival the lads will be hitting it big with an unmissable headline set in 2021!


Post Malone AKA White Iverson returns to Reading & Leeds for 2021 having released three genre bending albums, and refusing to be pigeonholed to one sound. Expect him to bring the unexpected in 2021, and with that an explosive live performance.


Disclosure have been one of electronic music’s most important artists over the last decade. Seamlessly crossing over between the underground and charts, the duo from South London have taken their sound global. Just as comfortably playing live as they are twisting knobs in the studio, we can expect they’ll take you on a hedonistic journey into a galaxy far away.


The all-round legend, Liam Gallagher, is one of the headliners for 2021. Our kid, Liam, will be bringing his huge singalong tunes from his solo catalogue and Oasis to Reading 2021. Expect Knebworth levels…!


One of the world’s biggest and most successful rock groups Queens Of The Stone Age will be bringing their world renowned, blisteringly heavy live show back to the R&L stage in 2021. Josh Homme and co are always pushing creative boundaries so expect something special from their 2021 headline set!

Two Door Cinema Club will no doubt bring some real energy to the weekend.  Two Door Cinema Club have made some of the most recognisable hits over the past decade and we can’t wait to sing-a-long with them in a field again.

AJ Tracey, Dababy, Doja Cat, Mabel and MK will bring a kaleidoscope of different sounds for the #RandL21 faithful. AJ Tracey will be coming live and direct with his unrivalled flow and infectious energy. Dababy always brings the vibe, and we couldn’t say no to Doja Cat who will definitely bring those summer vibes. Mabel oozes with talent, swagger and charisma, we’re sure she’ll capture you with her words. MK is one of the pioneers of house music, and with over 30 years in the game he’s constantly pushing the boundaries, rocking crowds and taking the genre into new directions.
