Mumford and Sons are set to headline at Reading and Leeds Festivals 2015 alongside already announced act Metallica
Mumford & Sons are to headline at this year's Reading and Leeds Festivals.
The British rock band - which previously appeared at the events in 2010 when it performed on the NME/BBC Radio 1 Stage - will take to the Main Stage alongside already announced act Metallica between August 28 and August 30, 2015.
Melvin Benn, festival boss, said: "I'm delighted to have secured Mumford & Sons for Main Stage headliners this summer."
The festivals will be Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett, Winston Marshall and Ted Dwane's first UK performance as a group in over two years following a brief hiatus.
Melvin added: "I can't wait to see them return to the festivals for their first UK performance in over two years. With today's announcement of a further eight great acts joining the bill, the Reading & Leeds line-up is already shaping up to be one of the best ever and I'm looking forward to revealing the third headliner and even more great artists soon."
Other acts set to grace the festivals this year include Bastille, Royal Blood, Rebel Sound ft. Chase & Status, Rage, David Rodigan and Shy FX, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Wolf Alice, Years & Years, Pretty Viscious and Hannah Wants.
