Melvin Benn has been dropping hints that there may be a secret set at this years festival. When speaking to NME magazine, Benn was asked if he could give any clues of who would be playing this year in which he responded: “Wild horses wouldn’t let me be able to tell you who the secret guests are. You can take from that whatever you want”.
He also spoke of his excitement to have Kendrick Lamar on the bill: “We worked incredibly hard to get Kendrick. We were absolutely committed to it – for me, it was a perfect booking and the audience’s response has been insane. Our Reading And Leeds audience are as excited for Kendrick as they are Mumford and Metallica. That’s in itself is an incredible statement isn’t it?”
