Reading and Leeds Festival is only a short, sweet week away from us now. With that in mind, we’ve decided to compile 9 bands, 3 from each day, that you need to see. These 3 bands will be performing on the Friday at Leeds and the Sunday at Reading. So, on with the talent!
Five Finger Death Punch;
The heavy metal titans that hail from America will be performing on the Main stage in front of the masses. This is the band’s first time playing the festival and is two of their last performances before going on tour with Papa Roach in September. Check out their sixth album, Got Your Six.
