Rage Against The Machine Headline Reading / Leeds

The line-up for this year's Reading Festival has been unveiled and three American bands will headline the main stage. Metallica will close the festival on Sunday, The Killers will be headlining on the Saturday and Rage Against The Machine will do likewise on Friday night.

Manic Street Preachers will be heading indoors and closing the Radio 1 stage on Saturday night, whereas The Cribs and Babyshambles will do so on Sunday and Friday respectively.

Rage Against the Machine reunited last year after splitting in October of 2000. They've played reunion shows at Coachella and also at various venues around the United States, now though, they will bring their political rock to the United Kingdom festival circuit.
