It’s no doubt it has been an incredible summer of music, and it’s not over yet as the legendary Reading and Leeds Festival takes place this weekend. With dozens of acts playing across 8 stages over 3 days, there is lot to choose from. As always the Already Heard team has got together to pick out what we think are the 20 must-see acts at Reading and Leeds 2014.
Bloody Knees are the latest band to emerge from the UK lo-fi punk scene. On August 25th the quartet release their new EP, 'Stitches' which promises to be a catchy and raw in equal measures. We spoke to vocalist Bradley Griffiths to discuss the new EP, joining Dog Knights Productions, being part of the UK emo and lo-fi resurgence and more.
If metalcore is your thing then say hello to From Her Eyes. The Welsh quartet are exclusively streaming their debut EP 'Demons' right here on Already Heard.
The organisers of Reading and Leeds Festival are planning to add up to three new stages for next year’s festival.
Festival Republic boss Melvin Benn promises to add more music and told BBC Newsbeat:
"We’re changing the arena at Reading and Leeds quite significantly. I’ve got quite a strong buzz and feeling in myself in the changes that I’m making there. I’m still formulating the ideas. There will quite a bit more dance music, quite a bit more other bits and pieces."
Benn also stated they are planning to announce at least one headliner for next year’s festival.
