Reading and Leeds: Sigrid, Get Inuit and Neck Deep among latest additions

The full Alternative Stage lineup is also confirmed today, starring Bill Bailey and Katherine Ryan


More bands have just been added to the Reading and Leeds lineup, along with the full schedule for the Alternative Stage.

Fledgling pop star Sigrid and indie band Get Inuit are among the new music highlights, with Bill Bailey and Katherine Ryan heading the comedy names.

Neck Deep are the major band confirmed today, returning for the first time since 2015 to headline the Lock Up stage.

Other newly-revealed performers include PINS, Baby In Vain and Fizzy Blood, plus Scottish indie rock veterans The View.

The LaFontaines and Irish rock band Otherkin are also freshly added.

As well as Katherine Ryan and Bill Bailey, the comedy stage will also feature Simon Amstell and Josie Long at both festivals, and Seann Walsh at Reading only.

Although more music announcements will follow later – mainly on the new music stages – the 2017 lineup has now largely taken shape.

Muse, Kasabian and Eminem will headline, with a supporting cast headed by Liam Gallagher, Two Door Cinema Club and HAIM.

Weekend camping is still available, for £205 plus a booking fee.
