Fall Out Boy

Fall Out Boy’s ‘Young And Menace’ has been nominated for a 2017 MTV Video Music Award for Best Rock Video, and their 7th studio album ‘M A N   I A’ – released January 19, 2018 – debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. You might remember the hits singles ‘Champion’ and ‘Hold Me Tight Or Don’t.’ This GRAMMY-nominated band has become one of the biggest and best known in the world, and we’re thrilled to see them performing live at this year’s Leeds Festival.

Kendrick Lamar

Growing up in Compton, California and releasing his first mixtape (Y.H.N.I.C.) at the age of just 16, Kendrick Lamar has risen to become one of the biggest names in music. His projects have included Training Day, No Sleep Till NYC, The Kendrick Lamar EP, and most recently The Kendrick Lamar OD, and he’s also released multiple tracks as part of Black Hippy with Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q, and Ab-Soul. Now working with such acts as Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, and The Game, Kendrick’s fusion of ability and humour always make for a top show.

Panic! At the Disco

Fronted by Brendon Urie, Panic! At the Disco is a Grammy-nominated, award-winning, internationally acclaimed rock band. Their fifth-studio album, ‘Death Of A Bachelor’, debuted No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart and their single ‘Victorious’ debuted at No. 1 on iTunes Top Songs, iTunes Alternative Songs, Billboard + Twitter’s Trending 140 charts just hours after its release. It was even nominated for “Best Rock Album” at the 2017 Grammys. Urie himself has recently taken to the stage as a cast member in the critically acclaimed Broadway hit Kinky Boots.

Kings of Leon

Ever since their debut in 2003, Kings of Leon have sold over 21 million albums and over 38 million singles worldwide. A multi-platinum selling band famous for their exceptional live performances, Kings of Leon has landed all seven of their studio albums on Billboard’s 200 list. They’re expected to be one of the biggest drawers and most popular crowd-pleasers at this year’s Leeds Fest.
