The festival will mark the first time in over a decade that Rage Against The Machine have played the UK, as well as the 30th anniversary of their seminal debut record. The band had previously been booked for the 2020 event which was ultimately cancelled due to the pandemic.

Bring Me The Horizon have played Reading and Leeds six times (including a secret appearance at the 2018 edition of the event), making their first appearance in 2008.
