Ahead of the return of Leeds and Reading Festival this August Bank Holiday Weekend (August 24-26), we will be taking a look at this years jam packed lineup. With festival co-headliners featuring the incredible Fall Out Boy, Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, Panic At The Disco and Kings Of Leon we wanted to give you our recommendations of ones to watch.
#1: The Faim
The Faim have had a busy 2018 so far supporting the likes of PVRIS, Lower Than Atlantis and Sleeping With Sirens. The band will return to the UK & Europe later in the Summer for shows with Sum 41 before heading to Reading & Leeds Festival. All this whilst recording new music ready for the release of their highly anticipated debut album. This band will most certainly be a hit with the festival crowd.
