What are your thoughts on the line up for Reading & Leeds so far?

Hopes of a headliner from the UK's grime scene have been dashed, despite festival chief Melvin Benn saying he was open to the idea past year.

"Adding Panic! at the Disco and Kendrick Lamar, probably the most sought-after act in the world right now, we think Reading and Leeds Festivals 2018 are off to an fantastic start".

A host of DJs and dance acts have been announced such as Annie Mac, Birmingham breakthrough Hannah Wants, Riton & Kah-Lo, Bristolian duo My Nu Leng and American genius Diplo.
