Liam Gallagher announced as first Reading & Leeds headliner

Known for his brash and outspoken ways, sometimes the glamour of music industry secrets can get the better of all of us, and that is exactly what happened when Liam Gallagher announced that he was to be the first headliner for next year's Reading & Leeds Festivals.

Originally posting the tweet "Reading and Leeds c’mon you know LG x” at the end of last week, the event quickly shot back with a reply of “Nice one… kept that quiet” before confirming the news themselves. Reading & Leeds Festivals are set to take place from the 28th-30th August 2020, and have yet to confirm any other names.
