He says: “So yeah. While She Sleeps for The Pit is exciting right?” He later added: “Mastodon headlining the other day of The Pit. Reading & Leeds will be amazing, right?”

Metallica will headline the main event which also features artists including Royal Blood, Pierce The Veil and Bastille. For more, visit the official festival site.
