Reading And Leeds Festivals Line-ups
The Reading and Leeds Festivals are a pair of annual music festivals that take place in Reading and Leeds in England. The events both happen on the bank holiday weekend in August (on Friday, Saturday, Sunday), and share the same bill (occasionally with one or two exceptions). The festival dates back to 1961 (then known as The National Jazz and Blues Festival) and settled in Reading in 1971. In 1999 a second leg was added at Leeds.
The following is a list of acts that have played at the festival (from 1977 only).
