The bands that play are chosen through a combination of the BBC’s countrywide Introducing shows, Leeds promoters Futuresound, festival promoters Festival Republic and Martin House’s Centre Stage competition.

Winners of the Futuresound competition and opening the NME/Radio1 Stage on Saturday at Reading and Sunday at Leeds will be Post War Glamour Girls.  

Added to the Alternative Stage comedy line-up is Adam Hills who will be combining the positive uplifting comedy and rampant spontaneity that has seen him receive a swag of awards, glowing reviews and a legion of fans around the planet.

Once again, Transgressive and friends take over the Alternative Stage two nights at Leeds Festival.  They will curate, DJ and host the stage’s late-night entertainment on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August.  Amongst the line-up this year are live performances from Disclosure, Summer Camp and Ghostpoet, plus sets from hotly tipped up-and-comers such as Theme Park, AlunaGeorge and Outfit.  

The Reading & Leeds Festival is held on 24th - 26th August 2012 at Little John’s Farm in Reading and Bramham Park in Leeds.
