The Ultimate Leeds and Reading Festival Playlist

Most Popular
The culmination of festival season is upon us. With only a handful of mud-ventures left on the calendar, we've had a listen to the line-up of the super-fests at Reading and Leeds.
 
Taking place each year on the last bank holiday of the summer, the Reading and Leeds festivals back up the almighty Glastonbury and with a brilliant list of acts – this year's no exception.
 
This summer's line-up is laced with nostalgia, reading like the closing credits of a documentary on the demise of music television. 
 
1990s/2000s headliners Eminem, Green Day and Nine Inch Nails share the stage with digital-download superstars like Azealia Banks and Knife Party.
 
Best news of all? The weather this year is looking brilliant: heavy on sun – perfect for adventure.
 
Like most, we enjoy a good playlist to ease the arduous journey to the field. Below are our Leeds/Reading mosh-starters.
 
Lifted from their fifth studio album, Bankrupt!. In the most unlikely of news, this song also has an official remix featuring R&B singer R.Kelly. Nice
 
The Australian rapstress with a southern (American) drawl continues her airplay invasion with this bouncy number, featuring Wale.
 
When not busy winning Oscars for major motion picture scores, Trent Reznor has found the time to reunite his old crew and record an album. This song is lifted from NIN's new LP, Hesitation Marks.
 
The indie band will be headlining the Festival Republic Stage with this song from their new album, Machineries of Joy.
 
Sure, the Harlem rapper will be "reppin' the 212" – but expect this track to follow it up. 
 
Be certain the singer-producer will exhaust audiences with this melodic anthem.
 
OFWGKTA's Tyler the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt will be joining forces as EarlWolf – expect this jumpy tune about your favourite breakfast drink to start the crowd. 
 
The Australian electro-house duo will be hitting the keys performing this and (happily) others from their Haunted House EP.
 
 
Our favourite from Long.Live.A$AP is this hip-hop anthem about a brazen trendsetter. 
 
The tenth (and maybe best) track from the Leeds indie-rockers' acclaimed debut, An Awesome Wave.
