Stadium rockers Muse have become the first headline act announced for next year’s Reading Festival.

One of the biggest things ever to come out of Devon, the trio have been confirmed as one of the main draws for the summer event, which will run from Friday, August 25, to Sunday, August 27.

Speaking about the news, festival boss Melvin Benn said: “I’m thrilled to be able to announce Muse as the first headliner for Reading and Leeds 2017.

“Their incredible live show promises to be an unforgettable performance – we have so much more to announce and I can’t wait to reveal the rest of the line up.”

BRIT Award-winners Bastille have been announced, as well as At the Drive In, who will follow up a sold out 2016 world tour.

And Major Lazer, the collaboration between Diplo, Jilionaire and Walshy Fire, are also confirmed.

Hip Hop artist Danny Brown, Architects, Glass Animals, Tony Lanez, Against the Current, Andy C and While She Sleeps complete the first list of acts.
