Arctic Monkeys have been officially announced as the 2022 headliners of Reading and Leeds Festival.
The band will be playing on the Main Stage (East) of Reading Festival on Saturday before travelling to Leeds on the Sunday.
Alongside the headliners will be Dave (Friday Reading, Saturday Leeds) and Rage Against The Machine (Sunday Reading, Friday Leeds).
Megan Thee Stallion, Bring Me The Horizon and Halsey will be headlining Main Stage (West) during the last weekend in August (26-28th).
As well as the above, Little Simz will perform as well as: Wolf Alice, Enter Shikari, Bastille and PoloG.
According to Reading and Leeds the first release tickets have already sold out with Three and Barclaycard pre-sales starting at 8am this morning (8 December) and being sold until Friday (10 December).
General sale tickets and instalment plans will be available from 9am on Friday (10 December) where you'll be able to split the cost of your plans.
This means you'll put an initial payment of £60 plus fees down and then you can split the cost of everything else over a number of instalments.
Fans are already getting excited with one writing: "What a lineup! Well done @OfficialRandL; you’ve smashed it out the park there."
Another added: "YOU GUYS ACTUALLY PULLED OFF A SOLID LINEUP IM F***** GASSED."

A third wrote: "AM, BMTH and Enter Shikari all playing Reading and Leeds? What a dream."
Someone else commented: "WOWWWWW at the Reading and Leeds lineup what the f**!!!! Honestly Glastos better look similar because that’s the best lineup at a festival I’ve seen in years."
The festivals went ahead earlier this year with Liam Gallagher, Gerry Cinnamon, and Stormzy playing.
On site in August, there were NHS Covid vans offering festival goers their jabs as easy as getting a beer with pop-up clinics available throughout the weekend.
The country’s top GP, Dr Nikki Kanani, urged the hundreds of thousands music fans attending the events to protect themselves and others by adding the ‘vaccine tent’ to their festival itinerary if they have not already been jabbed.
The initiative came after figures showed more than half a million 16 and 17 year olds in England had been given their jab.
