Reading and Leeds 2021 was a huge success - and tickets will soon be on sale for next year's festivals! Here's all you need to know, from dates to ticket links.

After a year off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Reading and Leeds festivals made a triumphant return for 2021 across the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Artists such as Liam Gallagher, Stormy, Post Malone, Biffy Clyro, Disclosure, Gerry Cinnamon, Wolf Alice, Yungblud, Blossoms, Sam Fender, Tom Grennan, The Wombats, Beabadoobee and Nothing But Thieves delighted audiences at Richfield Avenue in Reading and Bramham Park in Leeds.

It was even possible to get your COVID jab at this year's festivals, encouraging younger gig-goers to support the vaccination programme. Even Radio X favourite Declan McKenna went to get his second jab after finishing his main stage set!

Now 2021 is done with, fans can already look to 2022 with tickets going on sale this week! Find out everything you need to know below.

Who's on the Reading + Leeds Festivals 2022 line-up?

There's no official word on who will be headlining next year's Reading + Leeds, but festival boss Melvin Benn told NME that "three of the six headliners are in place" already for next year.

R+L 2021 saw Stormy, Post Malone, Liam Gallagher, Catfish & The Bottlemen, Disclosure and Biffy Clyro perform in the unique "six headliners" formation.

Whether or not there will be six headliners at the 2022 festival has yet to be confirmed by organisers.
