Rapper Kendrick Lamar has been confirmed as one of the four headliners along with rock bands Fall Out Boy, Kings of Leon and Panic! at the Disco.
However, the absence of a number of bands has been met with derision from some and the line-up has also been dubbed “incredibly underwhelming”.
One music fan wrote on Twitter: “Don’t know what to say about the Reading and Leeds line-up. Where’s Green Day, Arctic Monkeys and Foo Fighters?
“So glad I didn’t buy my ticket early, pains me to say it but I might not bother this year. £RnL2018.”
