Leeds and Reading line ups announced

The reforming Libertines have grabbed most of the headlines in the run up to the Leeds and Reading festivals, but there's plenty more to get excited about if you're not fans of the pretentious wastrels. Followers of American emo will be overjoyed that Blink 182 are heading up Saturday at Leeds and Sunday at Reading. The rest of us will merely shudder.

Elsewhere there's a good mix of indie stalwarts and newcomers with Mumford and Sons and The Big Pink sharing the bill with veterans LCD Soundsystem and Gallic purveyors of ironic rock, Pheonix.

A line up to bring joy to some, infuriate others and cause many a Strongbow (White Lightning if desperate) fuelled argument. What more could you want for a festival? The 2010 Reading And Leeds Festivals line up as it stands:
