Catfish and the Bottlemen‘s highly anticipated return is finally HERE!!! A band in possession of a magnetic focal point in frontman Van McCann, Catfish and the Bottlemen are firmly established as one of the most interesting and dynamic bands to come out of the UK in recent years.

One of the world’s biggest rock bands, Blink-182, have sold over 50 million albums in a career spanning nearly 30 years. The band is more in-demand than ever following the reformation of their iconic original line-up featuring Tom DeLonge, Travis Barker, and Mark Hoppus on new album ‘One More Time’. Blink-182’s 2024 UK festival exclusive performance marks a return to Reading & Leeds after a decade and will be a pop-punk hit-filled celebration of the genre they shaped.

His hotly anticipated second album, THE BONNY, shot straight to UK Number 1 in the Official Charts and Gerry’s sold out 355,000 capacity UK tour culminated in two history-making homecoming shows at Scotland’s national stadium with 100,000 fans last year. Now his first Reading & Leeds headline awaits…
“Reading and Leeds. Last time was absolutely fucking bananas. Was first gig straight out of lockdown, heavy emotional. Headlining now so we’ll take it up another level again. Buzzing to be back. See you there.” – Gerry
Raye joins the R&L lineup, bringing soulful vocals, poetic lyrics, and a unique twist on R&B, all of which have contributed to a stratospheric rise, culminating in the release of her long-awaited award-winning independent debut album, My 21st Century Blues.
