The band have only played a handful of gigs since they reformed in 2010, but they are back in the UK to play the Main Stage at the 2013 Festivals, which is sure to be a highlight of the weekend.  
Also announced for the festivals is recently reformed festival favourites Fall Out Boy, will take to the Main Stage in yet another UK festival exclusive performance. 


Their live shows are always anarchic and tend to include a few irreverent turns. 

Their performance at the Festivals this summer will feature songs from across the band"s entire career and will be unmissable.
Foals have played Reading & Leeds Festivals three times before, working their way up from the smallest tent, to this year taking their rightful place on the Main Stage.

British metalcore dons Bring Me The Horizon have been destroying huge crowds for almost a decade. 

The band"s shows on the Main Stage at Reading & Leeds Festivals will crown a year in which they went stratospheric, as well as give fans a chance to hear new material from their highly anticipated forthcoming album 'Sempiternal'.
