Also, I’m going to throw in a guess that MGK and Yungblud will pop in and out for each others sets? Only because they have made some huge tracks together and they’re right next to each other on the lineup!

Leeds & Reading Festival 2021 Adds Five More Acts to the Lineup

Now I don’t know if this was due to criticism of the initial acts that had been previously announced a few days ago or to add to the hype but Leeds and Reading Festival 2021 have added five more acts to the lineup.

The previously announced mostly all male bill came as a surprise to following the organiser Melvin Benn’s recent comments in saying it would be ‘the most all encompassing and inclusive Reading & Leeds line-up ever’.

Now I’m glad there have been more female additions to the lineup because it’s long overdue but to be more inclusive I think there needs to be more added to make it truly inclusive.

Also, in addition with Neck Deep and Yungblud being added, I think more rock acts need to be added because the festival becoming more of a glorified Indie and Pop festival. It’s definitely not pleased quite a few fans of the festival who’ve said previously online that they feel they’ve being pushed to the side more and more. I am glad however that the Fever 333 are performing at the festival because they transcend their performances. They push the boundaries on the genre and use everything at their disposal to make sure they’re not forgotten, whether it’s their music, the way Jason Butler speaks on stage or even they way they present their gigs as demonstrations.

Leeds and Reading Festival 2021 will take place 27th – 29th August 2021.
