Booker for Reading and Leeds talks about 'arena-sized band' for secret set

Booker for Reading and Leeds talks about 'arena-sized band' for secret set

Jon Mclldowie, the booker of Reading and Leeds, has been talking about the secret sets at this year's festivals, insinuating that it could be situation similar to that of 2012, when Green Day appeared in secret to play the Radio One stage.

"We always get calls about a month before the festival from bands saying, 'You know how we said we didn't want to play your festival, well now we're available and we really do,'" he said. "I've had about seven of those this year, including a couple from bands that are arena acts who want to do secret shows or do last-minute things."

Asked if a bigger band would play the secret slot, he replied: "One of them will... It's going to be a surprise."

Reading and Leeds festival takes place from August 22 - 24
