Muse have been announced as the first headliner for next year’s Reading Festival.
Taking place once again at Richfield Avenue in Reading over the late summer bank holiday weekend (August 25-27), they will be joined by the likes of Major Lazer, Bastille and At The Drive-In.
Rock royalty, Muse are one of the most influential and revered live bands of modern times.
Led by the commanding presence of frontman Matt Bellamy, the trio have taken to the biggest stages around the world with their interstellar anthems for more than 22 years – and their return to Reading promises to be yet another landmark moment in their storied career.
Back after six years following their Sunday headline slot in 2011, Muse said: “We’re very excited to be playing Reading and Leeds again. More news about our plans for 2017 coming in the new year.”
Festival Republic boss Melvin Benn, the man behind Reading and Leeds Festivals, added: “I’m thrilled to be able to announce Muse as the first headliner for Reading and Leeds 2017.
“Their incredible live show promises to be an unforgettable performance – we have so much more to announce and I can’t wait to reveal the rest of the line up.”
