The line-up for this year's Reading and Leeds festivals has been described as "staggeringly good" by festival director Melvin Benn.

According to Benn, the three "extraordinary" headline acts booked for the event which takes place over the two sites from Aug. 26 to 28 will not be headlining any other festivals this summer, BBC Newsbeat reports.
Although the headliners' identities remain unknown, by a process of elimination the likes of Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, Kasabian and Metallica can be ruled out, while with rumours persisting over Glastonbury appearances from Coldplay and U2 -- and Arctic Monkeys being touted for V -- they too would seem to be out of the equation.
Tickets for the event which last year saw Arcade Fire, Blink 182 and Guns N' Roses headline, go on general release some time in March and are subject to what Benn describes as a "not a very big increase" in price.
