Counterfeit, fronted by Jamie Campbell Bower will be making a triumphant return to Reading Festival, we’ve only just recovered from last time to be honest.

Headlining The Pit Stage is American rapper, Ghostemane. Famed for being an innovator of the fusion between rap and metal, he marries raspy black metal textures with juddering industrial low-end frantic hardcore howling.
