Leeds Festival line-up has been announced for 2018, with a real dip into nostalgia as well as some of the newest and upcoming acts of this year.
The well-known and increasingly popular festival will see US pop-punk band Fall Out Boy headlining the first night, Kendrick Lemar on the Saturday, and Kings of Leon on the Sunday. Travis Scott and Panic at the Disco will also be joining the headline set up for Friday and Saturday nights.
The Main Stage

With acts like The Kooks and The Wombats on the first night, followed by Sum 41 on Saturday and Billy Talent on Sunday, the Main Stage will be ablaze with old-school favourites. The Main Stage will also present popular names like Post Malone, Dua Lipa, Courteeners, and The Vaccines.
